  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).
  SCENARIO - Enhancing forecasting flood inundation mapping through data assimilation
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Prof S L Dance, Dr D Mason
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Flooding is major risk for lives and livelihoods around the world. In Europe alone, the annual cost due to flood damage is expected to rise to 100 billion EUR by the year 2080, due to a combination of climate change and socio-economic growth.
  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.
  Channel-floodplain interactions during flood events: energy and momentum exchange
  Dr S J Mclelland
Application Deadline: 13 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

When rivers flood, the velocity of the water in the main channel is normally significantly faster than that on the floodplains where water spills overbank, and therefore a strong shear layer develops where in-channel and out-of-bank flows interact.
  Flickering switches in the landscape: searching for tipping-points, system noise and bifurcation in Natural Flood Management catchments
  Prof T Coulthard
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Natural Flood Management (NFM) is an upcoming approach to managing flood risk in river basins – by modifying the hydrology through naturally sympathetic methods (such as small wooden dams, bunds and re-forestation).
  Erosion hazards in river catchments: How resilient is critical infrastructure to climate change?
  Dr J Cooper, Prof A Plater
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The overall aim is to quantify how future climate scenarios will affect the frequency and severity of erosion hazards in catchments, the future risks posed to critical infrastructure and the vulnerability and resilience of these assets.
  Pathways to Realistic Impact Modelling in Estuarine Areas (PRIMEA)
  Dr P Robins, Dr S Neill
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Estuaries connect terrestrial and marine environments, providing one of the most productive ecosystems on Earth. Complex land-sea interactions combined with intensive land-use and land-value mean that they are at heightened risk from flooding and poor health.
  SEESALT: Novel ways to ’SEE’ coastal ’SALT’ marshes using low-cost drones and sensors
  Dr D Green, Dr D Mauquoy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Saltmarshes are found extensively along low wave energy coastlines resulting from fine sediment accumulation and vegetation establishment.
  Environmental change, monsoon variability and human impact in Southeast Asia
  Dr J Lacey, Dr S McGowan
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We seek an excellent student to investigate environmental change, monsoon variability, and human impact in a Southeast Asian tropical lake.
  Rivers of the dammed: how should beavers fit and function in UK landscapes?
  Dr S Dixon, Dr J Larsen, Prof V Gauci
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Beavers are one of nature’s most prolific “ecosystem engineers”, able to radically reshape river systems and the surrounding landscape, through their unique ability to build dams and alter the flow of water, sediment, and nutrients.
