  Deep, dark and dynamic: Converted-wave seismology to explore the physical properties of Antarctic glacier ice
  Dr A Booth, Dr R Clark
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Could you be converted to glacier seismology?! Join our group at Leeds’ School of Earth and Environment, collaborating with the British Antarctic Survey, to apply seismic methods - from field survey through to interpretation - to some of the most pressing issues in glaciology today! Full project description here.
  Dynamic and Calving Behaviour of Glacier-Ice Shelf Systems in the Antarctic Peninsula
  Prof D Benn
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
We invite applications from UK and EU candidates for a fully-funded PhD studentship, on modelling behaviour of the Larsen B ice shelf and its tributary glaciers, both before and after the major ice shelf disintegration event in 2002.
  Calving behaviour, glacier dynamics and glacier stability in Greenland
  Dr J Lea, Dr N Leonardi, Prof D Mair
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Introduction. The calving of icebergs represent a varied range of processes that are currently too complex to be fully integrated into large scale ice sheet models (Benn et al., 2007; 2017).
  Arctic-and-alpine-river-food-web-response-to-glacier-retreat
  Prof L Brown, Dr J Carrivick
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
"Climate change poses a considerable threat to the biodiversity of high altitude ecosystems, with Arctic alpine regions across the world already beginning to show clear responses to warming (Milner et al., 2017).
  The sedimentology associated with subglacial drainage pathways beneath a soft bedded glacier
  Prof JK Hart
Application Deadline: 12 January 2019
One of the main drivers of glacier response to climate change is the rate at which surface water can reach the bed of the glacier.
  Assessing the water quality of Himalayan glacier-fed rivers
  Dr D Quincey, Prof P Chapman, Dr P Kay
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
More than 1.4 billion people depend on water from the rivers of the Himalaya (Immerzeel et al., 2010) and there are more than 6000 rivers flowing from the Himalayan Mountains to the hills and plains in Nepal (CBS, 1995).
  DTC GEO 8 - Seasonality in Himalayan glacier dynamics
  Dr A Luckman
Applications accepted all year round
Glaciers in the Himalayas are gradually wasting away, and often present risks to local communities in the form of outburst floods.
  Proglacial landscape evolution across the Antarctic Peninsula with Holocene climate change
  Dr J Carrivick, Dr D Quincey
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The ice sheet margin around the Antarctic Peninsula receded rapidly from its Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) position on the continental shelf edge ~ 18 ka (Davies et al., 2012) to a position towards the head of fjords, and in some cases onto land.
  Modelling ice shelf collapse in Antarctica (Advert Reference: RDF19/EE/GES/DE RYDT)
  Dr J De Rydt
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
The Antarctic Ice Sheet is one of the largest contributors to global sea level change and its contribution may increase sharply in the near future.
  NERC-funded PhD studentships: Department of Earth Science and Engineering, Imperial College London
The Science and Solutions for a Changing Planet (SSCP) Doctoral Training Partnership integrates six host partners and a number of business and policy sector partners, to offer an exciting programme that trains and inspire the next generation of environmental experts and leaders to tackle some of the toughest challenges of our time.
