  Fostering Sustainability Through Organic Waste Re-Use in Sub Saharan Africa
  Prof J Smith, Dr D Feliciano
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Efficient re-use of organic wastes is of critical importance to the productivity of small-holder farm households in many parts of Sub-Saharan Africa (Smith et al., 2015).
  River Soar Natural Flood Management: Bringing together local scale impacts and catchment scale strategies
  Dr I Pattison
Application Deadline: 22 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Flooding, and management, cost the UK £2.2billion per year. Under current economic pressures, flood policy is shifting from entirely flood defenses to broader management strategies.
  Understanding the link between metabolism and behaviour in plant growth-promoting bacteria (MALONEJ20DTP)
  Dr J Malone
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will address a fundamental but poorly understood topic in the field of plant-microbe interaction.
  Rising from the ashes: Understanding the biological resilience and social significance of fires in the UK
  Dr H C Glanville
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project description. Aim. To investigate the resilience of upland soils to wildfires and examine the social significance of wildfires in the UK rural landscape.
  Reconstructing microbial genomes from environmental samples and their impact ongreenhouse gases (HILDEBRANDQ20DTP1)
  Dr F Hildebrand
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for a highly motivated student, interested in Bioinformatics (metagenomics), global warming, and metabolism-centric interpretation of ecosystems.
  Microplastic-sediment interactions (MiPSi)
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr K Spencer, Prof G Wharton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The accelerating global release of microplastics (mP) into the aquatic environment seems inevitable, with long-term consequences for water quality and biodiversity.
  Quantification of the impact of changing vegetation on hillslope sediment transport
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr S Grieve, Dr E Lines
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hillslope sediment transport exists on a continuum from the gradual downslope motion of particles, termed soil creep, to catastrophic shallow landslides and debris flows.
  Rewilding and Natural Flood Management
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr G Harvey, Dr A Henshaw, Dr S Clarke
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over the last decade, the UK has experienced some of the most significant and extreme flood events of the last 100 years, and predicted changes in precipitation are expected to increase the frequency and costs of flooding.
  Soil microbiome function controlling radionuclide bioavailability and soil-to-plant transfer
  Dr J Pittman, Dr C Robinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the behaviour and environmental impacts of radionuclides such as radium (Ra) and uranium (U) is of critical importance for the management and risk modelling of sites with elevated concentrations of these radionuclides.
  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Agri-Food Robotics: AgriFoRwArdS

Funding Type

PhD Type

Are you the next future technology leader, aspiring to change the world through robotics? Applications are invited for fully-funded four-year PhD studentships in the world's first Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Agri-Food Robotics.
