  Modelling wave-induced sea ice breakup on small and large scales
  Dr F Montiel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sea ice is a key component of the climate system, which is experiencing significant changes as a consequence of global warming. The rapidly decreasing sea ice extent in the Arctic Ocean means solar radiations are increasingly being absorbed into the ocean, causing further melting and weakening of the sea ice cover.
  Keeping above the waves? The response of coastal freshwater peatlands to sea-level rise. PhD in Geography (NERC GW4+ DTP)
  Dr T Roland
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Tom Roland, Department of Geography, University of Exeter. Additional Supervisor. Dr Matt Palmer, Met Office Hadley Centre.
  Pliocene sea level constraints for future sea level rise
  Dr C H Lear, Dr E Gasson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project keyword. Climate Science. Project Background. Retreat of the Antarctic Ice Sheet due to polar warming remains the largest source of uncertainty for future sea level projections, hampering planning efforts and mitigation of sea level rise.
  Validating Cenozoic records of deep-sea ostracod diversity
  Dr I Boomer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ostracods are microscopic, bivalved crustaceans that have a long fossil record in marine and non-marine habitats. The existence of deep-sea ostracod assemblages in today’s oceans have been known since the 19th century Challenger expedition.
  How does the ocean influence glacial melt in the Amundsen Sea, Antarctica? (HALLUENV20ARIES)
  Dr R Hall, Prof K Heywood
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. The Amundsen Sea glaciers in West Antarctica are rapidly melting in response to recent climate warming and related changes in ocean circulation, increasing estimates of future sea level rise.
  Seascape genomics of Antarctic deep-sea coral: Groundtruthing larval dispersal models with genetic connectivity data
  Dr M Taylor, Dr O Hogg, Dr R Vieira, Dr R Ross
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scientific background. Detailed understanding of dispersal and genetic connectivity is critical in determining processes underpinning population persistence and productivity, speciation, appropriate scales for management, and the potential for recovery from detrimental impacts e.g.
  Joint PhD with University of Hamburg: Developing non-linear and interactive sea ice emulators
  Assoc Prof M Meinshausen, Prof D Notz
Application Deadline: 21 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Arctic sea ice is a key climate indicator. Sea ice integrates over many years changes in the atmospheric and oceanic fluxes and clearly reflects changes by its varying extent and thickness.
  Joint PhD with University of Manchester: Sea-level rise and everyday lives in small island states
  Dr C McMichael, Prof U Kothari
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This doctoral project will focus on strategies of ‘fortification, accommodation and retreat’ in response to sea-level rise in small island states.
  The seasonal ocean dynamics of the Amundsen Sea Embayment
  Research Group: Scottish Oceans Institute
  Dr L Boehme
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Thwaites and neighbouring glaciers in the Amundsen Sea Embayment (ASE) are rapidly losing mass in response to recent climate warming and related changes in ocean circulation.
  Benefit of high resolution models for climate predictions. PhD in Mathematics (NERC GW4+ DTP)
  Prof A Scaife
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Prof Adam Scaife, Department of Mathematics, College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, University of Exeter.
