  Past, present and future of permafrost peatlands
  Dr P Morris, Dr G Swindles
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Background. The Arctic is experiencing more rapid warming than anywhere else on the planet (Cohen et al., 2014), and this trend is projected to accelerate in coming decades, even under modest emissions scenarios (Collins et al., 2013).
  Siberian summers: detecting the leakage of old carbon from permafrost catchments
  Dr J Dean, Prof R Chiverell
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Arctic permafrost soils are large carbon stores capable of driving a positive climate feedback loop as global temperatures rise (Dean et al., 2018a).
  Master/PhD Project: Undersea permafrost characterization using seismic attenuation
  Prof G Fabien-Ouellet
Applications accepted all year round
Extensive offshore areas all around the world are underlain by terrestrial permafrost. The frozen ground traps potent greenhouse gases like methane.
  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.
  Resolving the frequency of mass movement events with new luminescence dating techniques
  Dr R Smedley, Dr E Mariani, Dr S Dunning, Dr J-P Buylaert
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Introduction. Luminescence dating is a geochronological technique important for reconstructing past environments on Earth over the last million years (see Smedley, 2018 for details).
  Low-Carbon Energy Recovery from Methane Hydrate Reservoirs
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr W Afzal
Applications accepted all year round
Naturally occurring gas (mostly methane) hydrates along the continental margins (coastal offshore) and permafrost sediments are the clean source of energy outnumbering the rest forms of conventional energy sources.
  Impact of Arctic snow on soil and sea ice (Advert Reference: RDFC17-R/GES/RUTTER)
  Dr N Rutter
Applications accepted all year round
The thermal properties of Arctic snow play a vital role in mediating energy exchanges between the atmosphere and tundra soils or sea ice.
  An experimental and macroecological investigation of precipitation effects on Arctic plant root traits
  Dr F Schrodt
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
The Arctic tundra is particularly exposed to climate change, with warming of up to 5°C measured during the 20th century, and substantial increases in precipitation predicted for the 21st century.
  Predicting future methane release from the seabed due to Arctic warming and sea ice retreat
  Dr Y Aksenov, Dr H Moreno, Dr B Sinha, Prof T Minshull
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Project Rationale. Methane hydrate is an ice-like substance that is stable at high pressures and low temperatures and is present beneath the seabed on continental margins.
