  Isotope-enabled climate modelling to better understand long-term rainfall dynamics in North Africa
  Dr P Hopcroft, Dr M Widmann, Dr G C LECKEBUSCH
Applications accepted all year round
Project highlights. Study climate in a region that is particularly vulnerable to future change. Use isotope-enabled and high-resolution climate model simulations to investigate how the Sahara became ‘Green’ 9000-4000 years ago.
  Climate change and global wildfire activity: developing a framework for event attribution and future risk assessment
  Dr J Eden
Application Deadline: 22 March 2019
Coventry University (CU) is inviting applications from suitably-qualified graduates for a fully-funded PhD studentship. Wildfires constitute a major natural hazard and pose huge risk to many regions of the world.
  Modelling rapid CO2 and climate change in the Southern Ocean
  Dr A Burke, Prof D Dritschel, Dr J Rae, Dr J Reinaud
Application Deadline: 19 March 2019
The Southern Ocean plays a fundamental role in the regulation of Earth’s climate through its uptake of heat and carbon. Despite representing only 20% of the ocean surface area, it accounts for more than 50% of ocean carbon uptake and more than 75% of ocean heat uptake (Charrassin et al., 2008; Meredith and Hogg, 2006).
  Dynamics of monsoon depressions in a warming climate
  Dr M Byrne, Dr R Scott
Application Deadline: 19 March 2019
Monsoons are large-scale summertime weather systems that provide rainfall to half the global population. Monsoons are vital for agriculture and societies in Asia, Africa, Australia, and the Americas, and are expected to change dramatically in future decades due to global warming.
  Financing the Climate Transition: The Role of Macroeconomic Policymakers
  Dr D Comerford, Dr G Allen
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
A three-year doctoral studentship is available for a highly motivated candidate who has a keen interest in exploring the role that macroeconomic policymakers can play in enabling the vast reallocation of capital needed to finance a zero-carbon economy.
  Towards a theory for the surface layer of the ocean: clarifying the contribution of non-breaking waves to the observed differences between the oceanic surface layer and its atmospheric counterpart
  Dr MA Teixeira, Dr A Grant
Applications accepted all year round
In this project we intend to clarify the contribution of non-breaking waves to the observed differences between the oceanic surface layer and its atmospheric counterpart, and to formulate a systematic description of its scaling properties regarding, for example, heat and momentum fluxes, as achieved for the atmosphere by Monin-Obukhov theory.
  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.
  Fusion Forest : Numerical Modelling of Air Flow in Forests to Secure Disease Resilience through Pattern Variability
  Dr B Fraga, Dr E Luna-Diez
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Highlights. Funded by the Global Challenges Scholarships of the University of Birmingham. Transdisciplinary research project. Using in-house, state-of-the-art Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) models.
  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.
  Fusion Forest : securing disease resilience through pattern variability
  Research Group: Climate change
  Dr B Fraga, Dr E Luna-Diez
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Highlights. Funded by the Global Challenges Scholarships of the University of Birmingham. Transdisciplinary research project. Using in-house, state-of-the-art Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) models.
