  River Soar Natural Flood Management: Bringing together local scale impacts and catchment scale strategies
  Dr I Pattison
Application Deadline: 22 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Flooding, and management, cost the UK £2.2billion per year. Under current economic pressures, flood policy is shifting from entirely flood defenses to broader management strategies.
  MRes: The status of salmonids and their habitat in the Loch Lomond catchment, Scotland
  Dr H Honkanen, Prof C Adams
Application Deadline: 22 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This one year project leading to submission for a Masters by Research (MRes) will focus on work informing the successful management of salmonid fish in the Loch Lomond catchment.
  Can beaver-modified ecosystems mitigate water quality deterioration caused by both point and diffuse source pollution? PhD in Geography (NERC FRESH)
  Dr R Brazier
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Professor Richard Brazier, Department of Geography, University of Exeter. Additional supervisors. Dr Gemma Coxon, School of Geographical Sciences, University of Bristol.
  Investigating the impact of climate change on riverine flooding (Advert Reference: SF18/MCE/MOTTA)
  Dr D Motta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Riverine flooding evaluation typically includes a hydrologic analysis to estimate the flood peak discharge or hydrograph for a reference return period, and a hydraulic model to compute the corresponding water surface elevations and flooded areas.
  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.
  Rewilding and Natural Flood Management
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr G Harvey, Dr A Henshaw, Dr S Clarke
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over the last decade, the UK has experienced some of the most significant and extreme flood events of the last 100 years, and predicted changes in precipitation are expected to increase the frequency and costs of flooding.
  Flood mitigation schemes in rural communities in the south west of England
  Dr K Clarke, Dr A P Dykes, Dr M Ibsen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There have been several severe flood events in southwest England in recent years, including Boscastle in 2004, Dawlish in 2014 and Coverack in 2014 and July 2017.
