  Funded Geography PhD opportunities
For more than 125 years, The University of Manchester has produced globally excellent geographical research. When you undertake your PhD with us you'll be integrated into our research ethos and practices, which aim to produce both theoretically significant and policy-relevant contributions to geographical knowledge.
  PhD opportunities in the Department of Geography- in the top 50 worldwide
The University is rated in the top 100 by the QS World University Rankings, priding itself on research-led critical thinking that aims to make an impact in the world.
  Investigating the impact of climate change on riverine flooding (Advert Reference: SF18/MCE/MOTTA)
  Dr D Motta
Applications accepted all year round
Riverine flooding evaluation typically includes a hydrologic analysis to estimate the flood peak discharge or hydrograph for a reference return period, and a hydraulic model to compute the corresponding water surface elevations and flooded areas.
  Effect of atmospheric stability on aeolian transport
  Dr B Li, Dr J Cooper
Applications accepted all year round
Atmospheric stability is the air vertical movement tendency controlled by atmospheric stratification, which can usually be measured using a series of Richardson numbers.
  PhD in Geographical & Earth Sciences: Exploring the social, historical and environmental legacies of steel slag
  Dr S Naylor
Application Deadline: 5 April 2019
The closure of steel works in the UK has had well-documented social and economic effects on former steelmaking communities. The most tangible remains of former steelworks is often the industrial waste product.
  Geochemical constraints on the hydrological restoration of groundwater-dependent wetlands in lowland catchments.
  Dr S Robinson, Dr A Duranel
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019
Healthy, functioning natural wetlands are critically important, yet the world is rapidly losing these habitats due to anthropogenic pressures.
  Single-molecule imaging in live cell to study gene geography and the role of DNA biophysics in regulating genes
  Research Group: Physics of Life - Biological Physics and Biophysics
  Prof M Leake, Prof C Dorman
Application Deadline: 1 September 2019
Your project will address the key question of what is the importance of the physical location of genes in determining their state of activity.
  Improving hydrological modelling in cold regions with satellite observations
  Dr Z Duan
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
Global warming is accelerating snow-glacier retreat and shifting hydrology in cold regions, which affects sustainable development of downstream residents.
  The Genesis of Volcanic Ash
  Dr S Lane, Dr J Gilbert, Dr M James
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
Fine-grained volcanic ash is created during pyroclast collisions within energetic volcanic flows in conduits, jets and pyroclastic density currents.
  Food insecurity, risk and resilience in low income households
  Research Group: Food security and cold storage
  Dr E Frew, Prof J Bryson
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Background. Food insecurity is defined as not having reliable access to sufficient affordable and nutritious food. It affects 41% of families worldwide and leads to negative health and psychosocial outcomes in children and adults.
