  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).
  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.
  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 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.
  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.
  How will climate change affect organic matter exported from peat?
  Dr C Moody, Prof P Chapman
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Peatlands cover only 2.8% of the Earth but store 50% of the global soil carbon pool and 10% of the world’s freshwater.
  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.
  A new approach to modeling the impacts of climate change on avian biodiversity (WARRENUENV19ARIES)
  Prof R Warren, Dr J Price, Dr J Pearce-Higgins
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Scientific background. Climate change is affecting biodiversity. Species distributions are changing and spring is advancing. In the future, risks are projected to be much greater.
  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.
  Climate change impacts on cold-adapted butterflies: discovering the mechanisms and testing potential mitigation approaches
  Dr R Menendez
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Cold-adapted species, including those restricted to mountains, are highly vulnerable to climate change. For UK butterflies, cold-adapted species are similarly threatened by climate change mediated decline, with some species demonstrating range retractions concurrent with recent warming.
