  Probing organic composition of the atmosphere with Time of Flight Mass Spectrometry
  Research Group: Atmospheric Science
  Prof H Coe, Dr J Allan, Prof G McFiggans
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There are a huge number of organic compounds present in the atmosphere. They are emitted from a wide range of sources that are both natural and man-made.
  Fully funded PhD Scholarships in the School of Earth, Atmosphere and Environment

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fully funded PhD Scholarship Opportunities, Potential immediate start. School of Earth, Atmosphere and Environment. Scholarship opportunity's with immediate or early 2019 start for applicants with exceptional tertiary qualifications.
  Performance Evaluation and Failure Analysis of Preventive Corrosion/Erosion Coatings Used in Power Plant and Refinery
  Dr D Daniel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fossil fuels are currently the major energy source with approximately 80% of total energy consumption of the world. Renewable energy including traditional biomass contributes to about 14%.
  A Comparative Study of Metallic Ions in the Atmospheres of Earth and Mars
  Prof J Plane
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metals are injected into planetary atmospheres by the ablation of interplanetary dust particles. The major species (Fe, Mg and Na) exist as atoms and ions that are excellent tracers of dynamics and chemistry.
  Atmosphere blocking dynamics: Persistence, re-intensification and interaction with other weather systems
  Dr O Martinez-Alvarado, Dr R Schiemann, Dr K Hodges, Dr D Ackerley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atmospheric blocking occurs when persistent high-pressure systems (or anticyclones) remain quasi-stationary over a given location or region at mid- or high-latitudes.
  The Retrieval of Atmospheric Isoprene from Satellite INstruments (RAISIN)
  Dr J Harrison, Dr E Marais
Application Deadline: 5 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Isoprene is the single most important non‐methane biogenic volatile organic compound (BVOC) in the atmosphere. Emitted from terrestrial vegetation, especially in the tropical forests, its annual emissions comprise nearly half the global BVOC budget.
  Fungal Ice nucleation: Moulding our environment?
  Dr T Whale, Dr E Gaya, Prof I Gibson
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will combine expertise in fungal phylogenetics and ecology at Royal Botanic Gardens (RGB) Kew with expertise in ice science at the University of Warwick to improve understanding of how fungi interact with plants, the biosphere and the atmosphere.
  Addressing the challenge of air pollution: Novel measurements of particulate matter and gaseous air pollutants in the UK and South Asia
  Dr C Di Marco, Dr M Twigg, Dr Z Shi, Dr E Nemitz
Application Deadline: 5 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Overview. Air pollution is of concern for human health and the environment. To mitigate air pollution it is necessary to first identify and quantify the sources of air pollutants, as well as understand their fate in terms of chemical transformations in the atmosphere and their deposition to ecosystems.
  Decision Support Systems for Sustainable Net-Zero Energy Transition, Planning and Management in the Global South (Developing Economy)
  Prof T Olaniyi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Energy is a universal currency and is considered in modern economic concept as fuel, measured by the capability to do work or the conversion of the capability to do work into motion, which embraces physical, environmental and socio-economic disciplines and pedagogies.
  Theology & Religious Studies PhD

Funding Type

PhD Type

About Theology & Religious Studies PhD. Latest REF rankings. The Department ranked 3rd in the country according to the ‘power' metric, which takes into account both the quality and quantity of research activity, and received an outstanding score for the impact of its research.
  Dinoflagellate cysts and palaeoenvironmental change during Cretaceous oceanic anoxic events: a study of OAE1a
  Prof I Jarvis, Prof G Gillmore
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will study Cretaceous dinoflagellate cysts. It seeks to understand relationships between dinocysts, a proxy for marine nutrient availability and organic zooplankton fertility, and episodes of black shale (petroleum source rock) deposition during Oceanic Anoxic Events (OAEs) in the mid-Cretaceous.
  Chemical functionalisation of 2D materials for composites and energy applications revealed through AFM-IR spectroscopy and mapping
  Research Group: Nano and Functional Materials
  Dr A Vijayaraghavan, Dr S Edmondson
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The use of AFM-IR for the characterisation of atomically thin materials is a recent development.
  Improving temperature observations from Space to close the energy budget of the Earth in support of UNFCCC objectives and the Paris Agreement
  Dr D Ghent
Application Deadline: 4 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The main impact of greenhouse gases on the Earth’s system is a reduction in energy exiting the top of the atmosphere and increased energy storage in the Earth system.
  The School of Education Doctoral Opportunities as part of the Faculty of Social Sciences

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University is rated in the top 100 by the QS World University Rankings, priding itself on research-led critical thinking that aims to make an impact in the world.
  Coronal Heating by MHD Waves
  Prof I De Moortel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The question why the Sun’s outer atmosphere (corona) is so much hotter than the solar surface (photosphere) remains one of the most challenging open problems in Solar Physics.
