  River temperature under change: understanding potential of riparian forest and landscape properties for climate adaptation
  Prof D M Hannah, Prof S Krause
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Background. It is expected that climate change will impact UK river ecosystems (Hannah & Garner, 2015) as a consequence of extreme low-flows and high river water temperature events (Garner et al., 2017a).
  Tracking adaptation to climate change using big data
  Prof J Ford, Prof J Minx
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Adaptation has become a core element of climate change policy and research, and figures prominently in the UN Paris Agreement (Lesnikowski et al., 2017; Magnan and Ribera, 2016).
  Examining public perceptions of climate change risk: The role of personal experience, emotion, and statistical descriptions
  Dr S Russell
Application Deadline: 8 February 2019
Public perceptions of climate change risk play a key role in people’s willingness to engage in mitigation and adaptation behaviours.
  Documenting and evaluating adaptation to climate change in the south of England
  Prof EL Tompkins
Application Deadline: 12 January 2019
What is the spectrum, distribution and prevalence of human adaptations to flood events and heatwaves? Which strategies to adapt to any environmental shock or stress are most common and which most rare? The short answer is – we don’t know.
  The uptake and use of new climate projections in risk assessment and decision-making in the UK
  Prof J Lowe, Prof S Dessai
Applications accepted all year round
The UK Government has commissioned a new set of climate scenarios as a tool for national and local Government, businesses and other interested stakeholders to assess the challenges, opportunities and potential actions needed in the face of climate variability and future climate change.
  NERC Panorama Doctoral Training Partnership - Adaptation strategies to pluvial urban flood risk under UKCP18 climate change scenarios
  Dr M Trigg
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The frequency and impact of heavy rainfall associated with summer convective storms and winter frontal storms is projected to increase with future climate change.
  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.
  Understanding temperature adaptation in tropical Andean butterflies
  Dr N Nadeau, Prof J Hill
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
We are seeking an enthusiastic student with interests in ecology, evolution and genetics to work on a project investigating thermal adaptation in tropical Andean butterflies.
  Modelling soil erosion and soil carbon dynamics in agricultural systems
  Dr M Galdos, Prof P Chapman
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Besides supporting food, feed, fuel and fibre production, soils provide ecosystems services such as storing carbon, filtering water and maintaining biodiversity.
  Mitigation, adaptation, built asset management and climate change
  Prof K Jones, Dr A Coday
Applications accepted all year round
