  Distribution modelling and the management and conservation of European ectomycorrhizal communities
  Dr M Bidartondo, Dr C D L Orme
Application Deadline: 12 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project, the student will develop cutting-edge distributional models of dominant ectomycorrhizal (ECM) fungal species across Europe and establish vital practice and policy recommendations for the monitoring, management and conservation of these ecologically critical organisms.
  Lead isotope ratio measurements in microcosms and avian samples as indicators for the source of lead poisoning in wildfowl
  Dr J Barker, Dr S Barton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead (Pb) poisoning is commonly linked amongst anthropogenically-caused deaths in waterfowl and this is often associated with hunting and fishing activities.
  The role of lateral and tree transport in methane cycling in tropical peatlands
  Dr S Pangala
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tropical peatlands in Southeast Asia have sequestered carbon over thousands of years and are an important global carbon stock.
  New generation of brake pads – design and tribological testing (Advert Reference: SF18/MCE/ZABIEGAJ)
  Dr D Zabiegaj
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Road traffics and industrial processes that are well-known as exhaust emissions producers; however, released Particulate Matter (PM) originates also from a number of non-exhaust processes, brake and tyres, involving corrosion and mechanical abrasion.
  Fully-Funded PhD Scholarship in UK Radioactive Waste Thermal Treatment and Environmental Monitoring
  Prof Paul Bingham
Application Deadline: 7 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sheffield Hallam University is offering this challenging and exciting PhD project in radioactive waste immobilisation and monitoring.
  Hot stuff? Evaluating the human exposure hazard presented by land contaminated with organic flame retardants
  Prof S J Harrad, Dr M Abdallah
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chemical flame retardants (FRs) such as polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) and chlorinated organophosphates (e.g. tris (2-chloroisopropyl)phosphate – TCIPP) have been used extensively in a wide range of applications worldwide.
  Microplastics as conduits of flame retardants in birds feeding on landfills
  Dr M Abdallah, Dr S J Reynolds
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is increasing evidence of widespread ingestion of plastics by birds, mistaking it for food, during foraging. The demonstrated effects of plastic ingestion by birds include.
  Total Atmospheric Emissions from the Biosphere
  Dr W J Bloss, Dr L Kramer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The dominant source of hydrocarbons to the atmosphere is vegetation – biogenic volatile organic compounds or BVOCs. In the atmosphere, BVOCs undergo chemical processing, leading to the formation of secondary pollutants such as ozone and organic aerosol particles, affecting human and environmental health and climate.
  Effect of bed roughness on the spreading and dilution of gravity currents
  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
  Prof Y Guo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gravity current is frequently encountered in natural (e.g. saltwater intrusion in estuary) and men-made environment (e.g. mining solution; desalination).
  3D Printing Clean Air! - - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Prof C Faul
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

About the Project. This exciting project will introduce you the fascinating world of 3D printing and porous materials, whilst focussing your attention on helping to solve one of the biggest problems faced by many around the world – air pollution.
