  Understanding, Modelling and Predicting Landslides in High Mountain Areas (Norway) - Is Global Warming Increasing Mountain Hazards?
  Dr A Abellan, Dr B Murphy, Dr J West
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
We invite applications for a fully-funded PhD studentship to work on an exciting and truly multi-disciplinary opportunity for investigating landslide hazards in high mountain areas.
  Seismic monitoring of bedload transport in mountain rivers
  Dr M Naylor, Dr H Sinclair, Dr M Attal
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
Project Summary. You will develop and utilise a seismic monitoring system to monitor the mobilisation and transport of bedload in mountain rivers to understand impacts on flood hazard and fluvial erosion rates.
  PhD in Geographical and Earth Sciences – Decoding tectonics and climate effects in incipient mountains: the Sierra Nevada (southern Spain) case study
  Dr C Persano, Prof A Densmore, Dr D Fabel, Prof T Hoey
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
This project aims to constrain the evolving topography of mountain belts and to understand how mountains grow. Constraining how topography of mountains change with time, therefore, is crucial for understanding sediment delivery to the basins and changes in atmospheric circulation.
  Mountain soil resilience to land-use and climate extremes
  Prof N Ostle
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Can our upland landscapes provide clean drinking water, store carbon, maintain biodiversity, act as a platform for leisure activities and provide a rural…
  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).
  Severe weather over Southeast Asia: fieldwork and modelling
  Dr C Birch, Dr J Marsham, Dr R Neely
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The Maritime Continent in Southeast Asia is a key region in the global weather and climate system. Its complex island geography and position among the warmest oceans on Earth lead to a multi-scale concoction of severe atmospheric convective and dynamical weather systems.
  Climate change impacts on cold-adapted butterflies: discovering the mechanisms and testing potential mitigation approaches
  Dr R Menendez
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Cold-adapted species, including those restricted to mountains, are highly vulnerable to climate change. For UK butterflies, cold-adapted species are similarly threatened by climate change mediated decline, with some species demonstrating range retractions concurrent with recent warming.
  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).
  Exploring Design Opportunities for Context-Adaptive Collaborative Tools to Support and Enhance Drone-assisted Search and Rescue (SAR) Operations
  Dr N Verdezoto, Dr M Hoffman
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Every year hundreds of people are reporting missing in mountains and national parks in the UK. The extreme changes in weather conditions, reductions in statutory services budgets as well as the lack of resources and training make rescuing operations more challenging.
  Carbon drawdown on debris-covered glaciers (Advert Reference: RDF19/EE/GES/BROCK)
  Dr B Brock
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
This project aims to quantify the magnitude, variability and controls on fluxes of carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4), in supraglacial debris covers.
