  Characterising and containing catchment contaminants – Reducing risk at drinking water reservoirs
  Dr S Purnell, Dr J Ebdon
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
This project is important as it will, for the first time, systematically optimise a range of tools for the identification and prediction of nutrient inputs into drinking water reservoirs, assessing a range of catchment mitigation strategies.
  Investigating the impact of climate change on riverine flooding (Advert Reference: SF18/MCE/MOTTA)
  Dr D Motta
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Developing Risk-Based Approaches to Modelling Phosphorus Contamination in Agricultural Catchments
  Dr M Glendell, Prof A J Wade, Dr P-E Mellander, Dr N Schurch
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
Phosphorus (P) pollution remains a major cause of surface water quality failures under the Water Framework Directive. Abating P pollution in agricultural catchments requires informed decisions about the likely effectiveness of land management mitigation measures and their spatial targeting.
  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
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.
  Biology of the invasive Chinese mitten crab in the river Thames
  Prof D Morritt
Applications accepted all year round
The Chinese mitten crab, Eriocheir sinensis, is an invasive brachyuran crab species (one of the top 100 most invasive species) that is now well established in the River Thames and tributaries.
  Holocene rapid climate change and vegetation response in Cappadocia, Turkey
  Dr W J Eastwood, Dr J P Sadler
Applications accepted all year round
Multi-proxy approaches to integrated regional studies of environmental variability during the late Glacial and Holocene can provide valuable insights into the ways that significant shifts in climate have affected natural ecosystems, landscapes and human activities over decadal, centennial and millennial timescales.
  Atmospheric Drivers of UK flood events: Current State and Future Changes
  Dr J Catto, Dr M Ekstrom
Application Deadline: 29 April 2019
This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Employing artificial intelligence & machine learning to optimise flood control for 21st Century cities
  Prof O Bokhove
Applications accepted all year round
Summary Rational and unique mathematical strategies for active flood control will be developed and tested in the design of flood alleviation schemes for UK rivers, such as Yorkshire’s Aire and Calder Rivers, based on increasing flood-plain storage capacity.
  The effects of high-speed rail on innovation and developing inter-connected high-tech science landscape in Taiwan
  Dr C Chen, Dr O Sykes, Dr C Wong, Dr C Li
Application Deadline: 1 June 2019
This PhD research project aims to examine the impacts of high-speed rail (hereafter HSR) on facilitating innovation and unpack the phenomenal clustering of knowledge spill-over across high-tech and knowledge-intensive activities and actors in Taiwan.
  Developing Ecologically acceptable Sediment targets for chalk rivers
  Prof D A Sear, Dr PJ Shaw, Prof A Collins, Mr T Sykes
Application Deadline: 1 June 2019
Fine sediment accumulation in the gravel beds of chalk streams is a key reason for failure under the Water Framework and Habitats Directives, impacting salmonid spawning success, and macro-invertebrate and macrophyte communities (richness and abundance).
