  Nitrogen controls on ecosystem functioning in neotropical dry forests
  Prof M Rufino, Dr J Whitaker
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Global agriculture is rapidly expanding in response to the growing demand for food, with ‘agricultural frontiers’, such as dry and fertile lands of the Gran Chaco in South America contributing to this need.
  The role of lateral and tree transport in methane cycling in tropical peatlands
  Dr S Pangala
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tropical peatlands in Southeast Asia have sequestered carbon over thousands of years and are an important global carbon stock.
  A New Framework for Measuring Uncertainty in Satellite Observations of Climate Change
  Dr M McMillan
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

About the Role. PhD Vacancy. This project offers the exciting opportunity to develop fundamental new insight into the certainty of satellite estimates of climate change, with a focus on Earth’s polar ice sheets.
  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.
  Past intermediate and deep ocean circulation during sustained periods of warmth
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr H Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ocean is absorbing much of the heat and carbon dioxide emissions related to human caused climate change, but the long-term impacts on heat transport, carbon cycling and deep ocean circulation are poorly understood.
  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.
  PhD: Microbial activity at the ice-soil interface in a High-Arctic setting
  Dr J Bradley, Dr A Jungblut, Prof K Heppell
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. The Arctic is currently experiencing amplified effects of climate change, including dramatic warming, the widespread retreat of glaciers, and the thawing of permafrost.
  Optimisation of Operational Performance Based on Data-Driven Dynamic Thermal Models
  Dr C Zavoianu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a Research Studentship (PhD) to carry out research within the School of Computing and Digital Media at Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, United Kingdom, under the supervision of Dr Ciprian Zavoianu and his team.
  Reducing Agricultural Greenhouse Gas Emissions ‘RAGGE’
  Dr T Mauchline, Prof N Ostle
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nitrogen inputs into agricultural systems are an essential requirement for healthy, high yielding crop production, but they can also result in the release of excess N either by leaching or by emission of the highly reactive greenhouse gas (GHG) N2O.
