  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.
  Clouds in Earth’s changing climate
  Dr T Dinh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Clouds are the largest source of uncertainty in climate models’ prediction of global climate change.
  Dynamics of Midlatitude and Tropical Convective Storms
  Prof D Schultz, Prof G Vaughan, Dr L Garcia-Carreras
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Convection is ubiquitous in the atmosphere. Although the ingredients of deep moist convection are well known (lift, instability, and moisture), how those ingredients come together to produce the observed panoply of convective storms worldwide remains an active area of research.
  Fully funded PhD Studentship: Computational / data science techniques to improve and integrate weather forecasting in business decision-making
  Prof M D Piggott
Application Deadline: 14 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a four year full-time PhD studentship to work on a research project jointly with Imperial College London (the departments of Earth Science & Engineering, Physics and Mathematics and Shell (the Data Science Centre for Excellence).
  Disappearing into thin air? Understanding degradation of plastic polymers in soils and freshwaters
  Dr B Surridge
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plastic pollution is one of the most pervasive threats facing global ecosystems. However, very little is known about the processes and governing factors that control the persistence of plastic polymers within environmental matrices such as soil or freshwater.
  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.
  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.
  High-resolution Imaging of Near-Earth Objects and Space Debris: Real-Time Atmospheric Tomographic Signal Processing
  Dr SJ Weddell, Dr R Clare
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our current research requires the development of a space situational awareness system for classifying Earth-orbiting artificial satellites.
  PhD: Atmospheric monitoring for next generation cable free optical communication technologies (British Telecom)
  Research Group: CDT in Applied Photonics
  Prof D Reid, Dr M P J Lavery
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cable-free optical communication systems are vital for building the communication networks of the future. Traditionally wireless connections have been based on radio or microwave systems.
  Machine learning based movement tracking from Internet-of-Things [IoT] devices to better understand the link between human behaviour and environmental stressors in cities
  Research Group: Atmospheric Science
  Dr D Topping, Prof J Evans
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The population in cities around the world is growing. Eighty-five per cent of humanity – some nine billion people - will live in cities by the end of this century.
  Towards improved weather forecasting via IASI satellite observations of carbon dioxide
  Dr J Harrison
Application Deadline: 5 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The assimilation of satellite radiances is crucial for Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) models with the benefit approximately evenly split between infrared and microwave data.
  Biological nitrogen fixation in forest soils under elevated CO2: response of a key soil nutrient to global change
  Dr S Ullah, Dr A R MacKenzie
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for an enthusiastic, well-qualified, and self-motivated candidate to join our team as a PhD student in the School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences and the Birmingham Institute of Forest Research (BIFoR) at the University of Birmingham.
  PhD in Plants and Microbes: crop production and protection, the interaction between plants and other plants, pests and pathogens, and soils, and the interactions of ecosystems with global change
  Dr C Voigt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants underpin life on Earth. In Sheffield, world leading plant research is undertaken across all scales from the molecular level through to the leaf and root, whole plant and ecosystem.
  Neutrino Oscillation Study and Proton Decay Search with DUNE
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Dr V Kudryavtsev
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

DUNE is a large international project to design, construct and operate a multi-kiloton scale liquid argon detector for neutrino physics, neutrino astrophysics and a search for physics beyond the Standard Model.
  RADON Assay Instrumentation with Industry
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Prof N Spooner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that is of increasing interest in the environment for health reasons but also has potential uses in many areas of science.
