  Re-thinking insect adaptation to Antarctica’s extreme environments
  Dr S Hayward, Dr L Orsini, Prof J Colbourne
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Antarctica has been isolated from the other Southern Hemisphere continents for at least 28 million years (Myr). Model reconstructions of the last glacial maximum (LGM ~20 000 years BP) suggest that all low-lying coastal areas on Antarctica, and many sub-Antarctic islands were completely covered by ice.
  Sediment flux in and around the Sør Rondans Mountains in East Antarctica (RDF19/EE/GES/WINTER)
  Dr K Winter
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Sediments in glacial systems can alter frictional stress at the glacier bed, modify ice flow speeds and change ice flow direction through long-term erosive processes.
  Understanding how Antarctic Ice Sheets control the climate of Antarctica (Advert Reference: RDF19/EE/GES/ROBERTS)
  Dr W Roberts
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
This project will unravel how the size and shape of Antarctica influences its climate. One of the key predictions of climate models is “polar amplification”.
  Antarctic climate history at the onset of glaciation: Was there ice in the greenhouse?
  Dr S Bohaty, Dr CD Hillenbrand, Dr R Boardman, Prof P Wilson
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Programme website. http://inspire-dtp.ac.uk. Project Rationale. During the extremely warm global ’greenhouse’ period ~50 million years ago, Antarctica was mostly ice free and hosted temperate forests.
  Modelling ice shelf collapse in Antarctica (Advert Reference: RDF19/EE/GES/DE RYDT)
  Dr J De Rydt
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
The Antarctic Ice Sheet is one of the largest contributors to global sea level change and its contribution may increase sharply in the near future.
  Biological and biogeochemical proxy calibration of deglaciating environments in Antarctica.
  Prof J Scourse, Dr S Kender
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Location. University of Exeter, Penryn Campus, Penryn, Cornwall TR10 9FE. Main Information. This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Up to 100 PhD studentships
Northumbria University is a research-rich, business focused, professional university with a global reputation for academic excellence.
  Tides as a natural experiment to learn about ice stream flow: modelling the “stick-slip” motion of Whillans Ice Stream, Antarctica (Advert Reference: RDF19/EE/GES/ROSIER)
  Dr S Rosier
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
The Antarctic Ice Sheet contains enough ice to raise global sea levels by over 60m but our understanding of the basal mechanics of fast flowing ice streams, that largely determine the rate and amount of ice draining into the ocean, remains incomplete.
  From Greenhouse to Icehouse: Past changes in southern hemisphere vegetation and the evolution of the Antarctic ice sheet (Advert Reference: RDF19/EE/GES/SALZMANN)
  Dr U Salzmann
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
How stable were Antarctic Ice Sheets during warm climate intervals in the past? What are the main events and processes controlling Antarctic climate and how are they related to global environmental change? The polar regions play a key role in our understanding of environmental change in a future warmer-than-present world.
  Atmospheric ice nucleating particles - is there a fingerprint of past changes in polar snow and ice?
  Dr M Frey, Dr A Kirchgaessner
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
BACKGROUND. Cloud droplets freeze homogeneously at temperatures below -37ºC, but the presence of ice nucleating particles (INP) can induce freezing at much higher temperatures.
