  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  River Soar Natural Flood Management: Bringing together local scale impacts and catchment scale strategies
  Dr I Pattison
Application Deadline: 22 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Flooding, and management, cost the UK £2.2billion per year. Under current economic pressures, flood policy is shifting from entirely flood defenses to broader management strategies.
  NERC GW4+ DTP PhD studentship: Linking large-scale oceanic and atmospheric forcings to local scale flooding via machine learning
  Dr T Kjeldsen
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Rewilding and Natural Flood Management
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr G Harvey, Dr A Henshaw, Dr S Clarke
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over the last decade, the UK has experienced some of the most significant and extreme flood events of the last 100 years, and predicted changes in precipitation are expected to increase the frequency and costs of flooding.
  Near Real-Time Multiscale Hybrid Surface Water Flooding Risk Forecasting. PhD in Engineering (NERC GW4 + DTP)
  Dr A Chen
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Albert Chen, Department of Engineering, Centre for Water Systems, College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, University of Exeter.
  Multivariate flood risk analysis under uncertainty and nonstationarity
  Dr Y Fan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Flood risk inference would generally be influenced by a number of factors (e.g. data availability, model selection), which lead to extensive uncertainty in risk inferences.
  Water Engineering: Complex Natural River Flow Modelling and Flood Analysis
  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
  Dr J Pu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The study on flooding, and identifying suitable ways to mitigate floods, have become a top priority for Government and the Environmental Agency, due to increasing flood frequency and intensity around the UK.
  Dam beavers: quantifying the impacts of nature’s water engineers on the fluvial geomorphology and flood regimes of streams and rivers. PhD in Geography (NERC GW4+ DTP)
  Dr R Brazier
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Prof Richard Brazier, Department of Geography, Centre for Resilient Environment, Water and Waste, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter,.
  Flood and drought assessment in a human-dominated water cycle
  Dr C Rouge
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is an ideal project for a resourceful and driven individual. The successful candidate will develop and hone first-rate analytical, computational and communication skills that will enable them to choose their subsequent career path, whether in academia or industry.
  Investigating the impact of climate change on riverine flooding (Advert Reference: SF18/MCE/MOTTA)
  Dr D Motta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
