  Fungal Ice nucleation: Moulding our environment?
  Dr T Whale, Dr E Gaya, Prof I Gibson
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will combine expertise in fungal phylogenetics and ecology at Royal Botanic Gardens (RGB) Kew with expertise in ice science at the University of Warwick to improve understanding of how fungi interact with plants, the biosphere and the atmosphere.
  Ice accretion on wind turbine blades
  Dr Y Lin, Prof J Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The abundant wind resource in cold and high altitude regions in the world is attractive for the increasing demand for renewable wind power production.
  Studying the formation of ice fragments during freezing and riming using high resolution holographic imaging.
  Research Group: Atmospheric Science
  Dr J Crosier, Dr P Connolly
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ice and mixed phase clouds have important effects in the atmosphere, via interactions with incoming solar radiation and outgoing terrestrial radiation, and generation of precipitation which impacts on the surface.
  Wave attenuation in the marginal ice zone (PARAUEU20SF)
  Dr E Parau
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Interactions between ocean waves and sea-ice are extremely complex. The interactions are essential to understanding sea-ice morphology, especially in the context of global warming [3].
  Modelling ocean wave dissipation through pancake ice fields
  Dr F Montiel, Dr A Suanda
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In a warming climate, ocean wave activity is projected to intensify in the polar regions. Sea ice forms as pancake ice at the ocean surface under intense wave conditions.
  Understanding the formation and impacts of pockets of high ice crystal concentrations in mixed-phase layer clouds
  Research Group: Atmospheric Science
  Dr P Connolly, Dr D Topping
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project aims to understand how small-scale heterogeneity observed within clouds – so called “pockets of high ice crystal number density” – affect mixed-phase layer clouds (see Lloyd et al, 2015).
  Aircraft advanced rear end and empennage optimisation enhanced by anti-ice coatings and devices
  Research Group: Aerodynamics and Flight Mechanics
  Dr A Da Ronch
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Andrea Da Ronch. Co-supervisor John Shrimpton. Project description.
  Microorganisms entombed in Polar ice – assessing the potential emergence of new diseases (Ref: SF20/APP/PEARCE1)
  Prof D Pearce
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The melting Polar Ice caps and receding glaciers worldwide are resulting in the emergence of microorganisms entombed in the ice for considerable periods of time.
  Development of Micro/Nanofabricated Anti-icing Surfaces
  Dr S Lowrey
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD position is available in the experimental development of anti-icing surfaces. This position will be hosted by The University of Otago's Department of Physics and will be carried out in Prof.
  Diamond Formation in Giant Ice Planets
  Dr D Gericke
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The internal structure of a planet, that is its radial material and density distribution, is largely defined by hydrostatic equilibrium.
  Geological and geomorphological characterisation of West Cumbria
  Dr J Lawrence
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

General Description. One PhD scholarship funded by The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) is open for applications at Imperial College London.
  Scattering by Cirrus: from Microphysics to Climate Change
  Research Group: Atmospheric Science
  Prof A Webb, Dr P Connolly, Dr A Smedley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ice clouds, which can cover 20-35% of the Earth’s surface at any time, make a major contribution to radiative forcing in the atmosphere, both trapping IR (terrestrial) radiation and reflecting solar radiation.
  PhD in snow microphysics
  Dr C Westbrook
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The formation and evolution of ice particles (snowflakes) in clouds is an important problem in atmospheric physics. Ice particles in clouds influence the radiation budget of the earth.
  Microbial life and activity on glaciers and in Arctic soils
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr J Bradley, Dr A Jungblut, Prof K Heppell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Arctic plays host to a diverse range of microorganisms, including bacteria, algae, and viruses.
  Droplet Impact onto Complex Substrates (PURVISRU20SF)
  Dr R Purvis
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will consider high-speed droplet impacts onto complex substrates, such as flexible or porous plates. In particular, the focus will be on how different surfaces can either enhance or supress splashing.
