  Atmospheric ice nucleating particles - is there a fingerprint of past changes in polar snow and ice?
  Dr M Frey, Dr A Kirchgaessner
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
BACKGROUND. Cloud droplets freeze homogeneously at temperatures below -37ºC, but the presence of ice nucleating particles (INP) can induce freezing at much higher temperatures.
  Connections between tropical and polar climate change
  Dr J Screen
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Main Information. This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Versatile Machine Learning-based detection technology for supercooled liquid clouds in polar regions
  Research Group: Climate and Climate Change
  Dr A Battaglia, Dr I Tyukin
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Clouds are a key regulator of Earth’s surface energy balance. The cloud cover along with cloud phase are the primary factors modulating the amount of radiation incident on the surface.

  MPhil Scholarship: Developing Oats for Improving Human and Animal Health
  Dr I P Shah
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
TO READ THE FULL PROJECT DESCRIPTION PLEASE VISIT. http://kess2.ac.uk/aum30004/. Available evidence highlights a major opportunity to add significant value to oats through the isolation and quantification of lipids as functional ingredients in the human food chain or for use in the cosmetic industry.
  A new polar ozone killer – sea-salt aerosol produced over sea ice
  Dr X Yang, Dr A Schmidt, Dr L Abraham, Dr A Jones
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
Sea-salt aerosol (SSA) is an important atmospheric primary aerosol, mainly generated from the open ocean. However, the sea ice surface has recently been found to be a large SSA source (via sublimating saline blowing snow particles).
  Analysis of a novel polar auxin transport pathway component in Arabidopsis
  Prof K Lindsey
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Auxin plays a key role in coordinating diverse aspects of plant development, contributing to crop productivity. This includes the development of the shoot, root, flowers, seeds, fruit, stem elongation, tissue differentiation.
  Impact of mesoscale eddies on the plankton communities of the Polar Frontal zone (TARLINGUBAS19ARIES)
  Prof G Tarling, Dr C Robinson, Prof W Wilson, Dr S Thorpe
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Scientific background. This PhD will provide the opportunity to study the remote and isolated Southern Ocean. Isolation is believed to make the fauna of the Southern Ocean unique but recent evidence of encroachments of pelagic fauna across the Polar Front challenges this view.
  Tetrazines as Traceless Carriers for Polar Drugs
  Research Group: Medicines Development and Pharmaceutical Sciences
  Dr R Wheelhouse, Prof P Loadman
Applications accepted all year round
A recent invention in Bradford has identified a new carrier molecule that reduces the polarity of polar drugs.
  Drought history of Southern Africa from windblown dust in ocean sediments and links to changes in global warmth and polar ice volume
  Prof P Wilson, Dr A Crocker, Dr S Bohary
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Programme website. http://inspire-dtp.ac.uk. Project Rationale. As Earth heats up this century because of human forcing, precipitation patterns will change globally.
