  Passive cooling in cities: a multi-scale modelling approach
  Dr Z Luo, Prof S Grimmond
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Passive cooling (e.g. Natural ventilation) is regarded as an important building technology to reduce energy consumption, overheating risk and promote sustainability in the built environment.
  Evaluating and improving high-resolution high-impact weather numerical weather forecasts
  Dr RS Plant, Dr T Stein
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over the past decade, high-resolution numerical weather forecasting has become practical using so-called “convection-permitting” models for lead times of 1-24 hours.
  New models of Outer Radiation Belt Dynamics
  Dr C Watt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Department hosts a vibrant Space and Atmospheric Electricity group whose research interests span the remit of Space Weather from the Sun through the heliosphere to Earth.
  PhD in Equatorial waves and Tropical cyclons
  Dr K Hodges, Dr G-Y Yang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tropical Cyclones and equatorially-trapped waves are two major components of tropical weather systems. They are responsible for not only high impact weather events (such as extreme precipitation and high speed winds) in the tropics but also weather events in the extratropics through teleconnections.
  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.
  What are the impacts of future changes in Tropical Cyclone activity in the Arabian Sea
  Dr K Hodges, Dr R Schiemann, Dr AG Turner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Arabian Sea Tropical Cyclones (TCs) occur once or twice per year on average. Yet they have significant impacts, through their intense rainfall, strong winds and storm surges, on the coastal regions of Oman, Yemen, Somalia, Pakistan and western India.
  What are the drivers and impacts of ocean and climate variability for Caribbean Islands? (STEVENSDU20SF)
  Prof D Stevens
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Caribbean Small Island Developing States face a variety of impacts from climate variability and climate change.
  Atmosphere blocking dynamics: Persistence, re-intensification and interaction with other weather systems
  Dr O Martinez-Alvarado, Dr R Schiemann, Dr K Hodges, Dr D Ackerley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atmospheric blocking occurs when persistent high-pressure systems (or anticyclones) remain quasi-stationary over a given location or region at mid- or high-latitudes.
  How predictable are Arctic cyclones?
  Dr K Hodges
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The area of proposed research is the predictability of Arctic cyclones.
  Improved time-stepping schemes in weather and climate models
  Prof P Williams, Dr H Weller
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"The task of predicting weather and climate may be reduced to the following iterative procedure. First, given the state of the system at any time (the input), use the governing equations to compute the state at a slightly later time (the output).
  PhD project in oceanic heat uptake and transport
  Dr T Kuhlbrodt, Dr H Hewitt, Dr R Tailleux
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ocean heat uptake is a key process in the current heating of the Earth System. 92% of the heat added to the Earth system is stored in the world ocean.
  Dynamics of Midlatitude and Tropical Convective Storms
  Prof D Schultz, Prof G Vaughan, Dr L Garcia-Carreras
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Convection is ubiquitous in the atmosphere. Although the ingredients of deep moist convection are well known (lift, instability, and moisture), how those ingredients come together to produce the observed panoply of convective storms worldwide remains an active area of research.
  Clouds in Earth’s changing climate
  Dr T Dinh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Clouds are the largest source of uncertainty in climate models’ prediction of global climate change.
  Cultural Geographies of LGBTQ+ Entrepreneurship in Scotland
  Prof T Cresswell, Dr N Morris
Application Deadline: 15 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project is an in-depth consideration of the mechanisms of cultural spaces and places (physical and digital, temporal and permanent) that connect LGBTQ+ communities and their role in facilitating community life and identity.
  Understanding fluid flow in fracture networks within the upper crust, experimental investigation, numerical modelling and environmental influence
  Dr C McDermott, Dr A Fraser Harris, Dr A Bond
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

As we transition to a low carbon economy, alternative energy technologies need to be developed that either deliver alternative energy sources or facilitate other low carbon technologies.
