  Evaluating and improving high-resolution high-impact weather numerical weather forecasts
  Dr RS Plant, Dr T Stein
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over the past decade, high-resolution numerical weather forecasting has become practical using so-called “convection-permitting” models for lead times of 1-24 hours.
  Theory and Simulations of Space Weather in the Earth’s Magnetosphere
  Dr AN Wright
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The environment surrounding a planet dominated by its magnetic field (called the magnetosphere) shields the planet from the solar wind.
  Atmosphere blocking dynamics: Persistence, re-intensification and interaction with other weather systems
  Dr O Martinez-Alvarado, Dr R Schiemann, Dr K Hodges, Dr D Ackerley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atmospheric blocking occurs when persistent high-pressure systems (or anticyclones) remain quasi-stationary over a given location or region at mid- or high-latitudes.
  Improved time-stepping schemes in weather and climate models
  Prof P Williams, Dr H Weller
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"The task of predicting weather and climate may be reduced to the following iterative procedure. First, given the state of the system at any time (the input), use the governing equations to compute the state at a slightly later time (the output).
  Modelling coastal cliff erosion/collapse as a result of extreme weather impacts: case study at east coast of the UK
  Dr M Heidarzadeh
Application Deadline: 26 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for our EPSRC funded Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) PhD studentship for the project titled “Modelling coastal cliff erosion/collapse as a result of extreme weather impacts.
  Dynamics of Midlatitude and Tropical Convective Storms
  Prof D Schultz, Prof G Vaughan, Dr L Garcia-Carreras
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Convection is ubiquitous in the atmosphere. Although the ingredients of deep moist convection are well known (lift, instability, and moisture), how those ingredients come together to produce the observed panoply of convective storms worldwide remains an active area of research.
  PhD in Equatorial waves and Tropical cyclons
  Dr K Hodges, Dr G-Y Yang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tropical Cyclones and equatorially-trapped waves are two major components of tropical weather systems. They are responsible for not only high impact weather events (such as extreme precipitation and high speed winds) in the tropics but also weather events in the extratropics through teleconnections.
  Fully funded PhD Studentship: Computational / data science techniques to improve and integrate weather forecasting in business decision-making
  Prof M D Piggott
Application Deadline: 14 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a four year full-time PhD studentship to work on a research project jointly with Imperial College London (the departments of Earth Science & Engineering, Physics and Mathematics and Shell (the Data Science Centre for Excellence).
  Development of a bio-based membrane for application as weather barrier in the building industry
  Prof P Blanchet
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Weather barriers are membranes used in the building wall envelopes. Their function is to prevent water (and wind) from entering the vulnerable sections of walls and roofs, while allowing moisture to escape to the outside.
  Towards improved weather forecasting via IASI satellite observations of carbon dioxide
  Dr J Harrison
Application Deadline: 5 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The assimilation of satellite radiances is crucial for Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) models with the benefit approximately evenly split between infrared and microwave data.
  Flood mitigation schemes in rural communities in the south west of England
  Dr K Clarke, Dr A P Dykes, Dr M Ibsen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There have been several severe flood events in southwest England in recent years, including Boscastle in 2004, Dawlish in 2014 and Coverack in 2014 and July 2017.
  Fungal Ice nucleation: Moulding our environment?
  Dr T Whale, Dr E Gaya, Prof I Gibson
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will combine expertise in fungal phylogenetics and ecology at Royal Botanic Gardens (RGB) Kew with expertise in ice science at the University of Warwick to improve understanding of how fungi interact with plants, the biosphere and the atmosphere.
  Understanding the formation and impacts of pockets of high ice crystal concentrations in mixed-phase layer clouds
  Research Group: Atmospheric Science
  Dr P Connolly, Dr D Topping
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project aims to understand how small-scale heterogeneity observed within clouds – so called “pockets of high ice crystal number density” – affect mixed-phase layer clouds (see Lloyd et al, 2015).
  AI to the rescue of climate change, modelling air quality for cleaner urban planning
  Research Group: Computing, Informatics and Applications Research Group
  Dr L Babu Saheer, Dr J Zarrin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. Computing, Informatics and Applications Research Group. https://auth-authoring-prod.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-engineering/research/institutes-and-groups/computing-informatics-and-applications.
  Optimizing Heating, Ventilation and AC Energy Usage in Large Buildings
  Dr M Abbod
Application Deadline: 26 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Brunel University London (BUL) is recruiting to EPSRC Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) PhD studentships effective 1 October 2020.
