  Tropical land-use change and regional climate
  Dr D Spracklen
Application Deadline: 2 January 2019
Rapid deforestation and degradation are occurring across the tropics. This land-use change impacts the surface energy balance, water and carbon cycles through changes to land-surface properties and through smoke emitted by forest and vegetation fires (Spracklen et al., 2018).
  Longitudinal study design to efficiently estimate biomarker change-point outcomes and time-to-change-point
  Dr S White, Dr B Tom
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
It is common to make longitudinal observations, repeated measurements over time, of biomarkers (and other covariates). Rather than smoothly changing over time, some biomarkers may exhibit sharp changes in their behaviour; a change-point is an identifiable shift in the long-run biomarker level.
  Understanding how climate change affects the tropical rain belt over Africa and its variability
  Dr J Marsham, Dr D Parker
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
SUMMARY. The tropics cover 40% of Earth’s area, include 36% of its land, and are home to 40% of its people. Africa is the continent with the largest tropical land mass, and its rapidly growing population includes many of the people who are most vulnerable to climate change.
  Climate change impacts on subsistence agriculture in Sub-Saharan Africa – an exploration using data assimilation with the JULES land surface model
  Dr J Kaduk, Dr D Ghent
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Climate change is expected to impact African water and food security, sustainable development and economic sustainability (ISS, 2010).
  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.
  Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation in the NHS England: The impact of policies on strategies and processes
  Dr P Mothan-Hill
Applications accepted all year round
The aim of this PhD project is to map and evaluate the different policies, strategies and processes of the NHS England with regards to climate change adaptation and mitigation and to measure and suggest improvements on how the health sector contributes to two of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
  Is it safe to go into the sea? Climate change and waterborne disease (LAKEUENV19ARIES) [CASE project with Cefas]
  Dr I Lake, Dr C Baker-Austin
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
This is a CASE project with Cefas. Scientific background. There is huge uncertainty in terms of how climate change may affect health human (IPCC 2014), and this PhD provides an opportunity to explore one exciting area, namely how climate change may affect waterborne disease.
  Climate change and species range margins: predicting forest resilience in the Mediterranean region
  Prof A Jump, Dr D Chapman, Dr A Vilà-Cabrera, Prof J Bullock
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
We are seeking a highly motivated individual to undertake research focussing on understanding and predicting resilience of forests to climate change in the Mediterranean region.
  Drivers of marine ecosystem change during an ancient abrupt global warming event
  Dr K Edgar, Dr R Butler
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The Palaeocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM) ~56 million years ago, is the largest of a series of abrupt global warming events known from the Cenozoic.
  Modelling temporal changes in biodiversity as a function of land-use change in Indonesia
  Dr T Matthews, Dr J P Sadler, Dr T Pugh, Dr NE Barrand
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The reported impacts of forest loss and land-use change are almost universally negative, and habitat loss more generally is argued to be the biggest driver of the current extinction crisis (Sala et al., 2000; Haddad et al., 2015).
