  Water Engineering: Complex Natural River Flow Modelling and Flood Analysis
  Research Group: Water Engineering and Natural Environment
  Dr J Pu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The study on flooding, and identifying suitable ways to mitigate floods, have become a top priority for Government and the Environmental Agency, due to increasing flood frequency and intensity around the UK.
  Biology of the invasive Chinese mitten crab in the river Thames
  Prof D Morritt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Chinese mitten crab, Eriocheir sinensis, is an invasive brachyuran crab species (one of the top 100 most invasive species) that is now well established in the River Thames and tributaries.
  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.
  Secondary currents in rough-bed open-channel flows and their interrelations with the primary mean flow and turbulence
  Prof V Nikora, Dr S Cameron
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Although the great significance of secondary flows for river processes has long been recognised, their origin, mechanics, effects, and interrelations with the primary mean flow and turbulence are still under debate and continue attracting close attention of hydrologists, geomorphologists, engineers, and, recently, stream ecologists.
  Reliable hydrological prediction under climate change
  Dr Y Fan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change due to anthropogenic activity are causing amounts of effect on our planet. One of the major concerns are related to the changes of water resources in future.
  Investigation of Tectonic Effects on Pipeline Stabilty
  Dr S Ullah
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pipelines make an important group of structures called lifelines, as they support conducting water, oil and gas essential for life.
  Regulation of water and nutrient cycles with Nature-Based Solutions (NBS) in a changing environment
  Dr A Ollauri, Dr A Escudero, Dr S B Mickovski
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCEBE-20-002-AGOSF. Climate change and population growth are threatening the quality and resilience of the Earth’s ecosystems. On the one hand, climate change is dramatically increasing the recurrence and impact of floods throughout Europe.
  Two-Lobe Swirl Duct Design Template for Blood Flow
  Prof D McGlinchey, Dr E Smith, Dr T Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCEBE-20-018-DMSF. Background. The first design of swirl-inducing duct was patented in 1899 to improve the dredging of river sediments.
  Mathematical modelling of internal waves in rotating stratified shear flows
  Dr K Khusnutdinova, Dr D Tseluiko
Application Deadline: 30 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Internal waves are waves supported by density gradients. They are ubiquitous in fluids such as the oceans and the atmosphere. The waves have a strong effect on offshore structures, underwater cables and submersibles.
  Recycling of thermoset resins via the development of a solvent trigger de-curing system - NSIRC180 PhD Studentship - Sponsored by Lloyds Register Foundation
  Dr G Durand, Ms H Stedman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Most composites use thermosetting resins (>50%), there is currently no commercial recycling process for thermoset composites.
  EPSRC Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) Studentship Awards (Physical Geography)

Funding Type

PhD Type

The School of Geography, Politics and Sociology is pleased to invite applications for two funded studentships in Physical Geography.
  New NMR methods for complex mixture analysis
  Prof M Nilsson, Prof GA Morris
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited from students with independent funding for PhD research in the development and application of novel methods in NMR spectroscopy.
