  Analysing forest aboveground carbon dynamics using dense time-series of satellite data and artificial intelligence
  Prof H Balzter
Application Deadline: 5 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent advances in computing technology, cloud computing and high-performance computing are paralleled with advanced artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms and significant investment in the European Copernicus Earth Observation programme and its Sentinel satellite missions.
  Improving Key Carbon Cycle Processes in Climate Models Using Satellite Observations
  Prof H Boesch
Application Deadline: 5 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The impact of man-made emissions on climate is recognised as a, if not the, major global societal issue. To understand the effects of these emissions (and mitigate/adapt to the subsequent changes), it is vital that we have a better understanding of the various couplings and feedbacks within the Earth system.
  Improving temperature observations from Space to close the energy budget of the Earth in support of UNFCCC objectives and the Paris Agreement
  Dr D Ghent
Application Deadline: 4 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The main impact of greenhouse gases on the Earth’s system is a reduction in energy exiting the top of the atmosphere and increased energy storage in the Earth system.
  The Retrieval of Atmospheric Isoprene from Satellite INstruments (RAISIN)
  Dr J Harrison, Dr E Marais
Application Deadline: 5 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Isoprene is the single most important non‐methane biogenic volatile organic compound (BVOC) in the atmosphere. Emitted from terrestrial vegetation, especially in the tropical forests, its annual emissions comprise nearly half the global BVOC budget.
  Towards improved weather forecasting via IASI satellite observations of carbon dioxide
  Dr J Harrison
Application Deadline: 5 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The assimilation of satellite radiances is crucial for Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) models with the benefit approximately evenly split between infrared and microwave data.
  Biological nitrogen fixation in forest soils under elevated CO2: response of a key soil nutrient to global change
  Dr S Ullah, Dr A R MacKenzie
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for an enthusiastic, well-qualified, and self-motivated candidate to join our team as a PhD student in the School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences and the Birmingham Institute of Forest Research (BIFoR) at the University of Birmingham.
  The future role of Citizen Science in catchment management (physical science)
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Prof K Heppell, Prof M Haklay
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Citizen Science and public participation in the collection of environmental observations for water management (ecosystem health, water quality and resources issues) is a growing field of research activity and long-term monitoring in the water sciences.
  PhD in Evolution and Behaviour: exploring the connection between how organisms have evolved and how they behave
  Dr C Voigt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The connection between how organisms have evolved and how they behave is a fundamental principle of biology. It can show us why organisms are the way they are, and answer deep questions about the diversity of life on earth.
  Approximate Bayesian Computation (ABC) for calibrating and evaluating Individual Based Models of fisheries
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr R Everitt
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Highlights. Spatially-explicit landscapes IBMs can show how populations change over time in response to management actions.
  Floaters vs. sinkers: How do marine phytoplankton combat the biological pump?
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr R Puxty, Prof D J Scanlan
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Highlights. Uncover the “genetic dark matter” responsible for maintaining buoyancy in marine phytoplankton. Test how abiotic and biotic stress impact buoyancy traits of marine phytoplankton.
  Microbial lipid cycling in the oceans: an integrated ‘omics’ approach
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr Y Chen, Prof D J Scanlan
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type
