  Assessing and improving resilience of cereal production in South Asia to climate variability and change
  Dr B Parkes, Dr T Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cereal production systems, in particular wheat and rice, constitute the main source of food security and incomes for millions of smallholder farmers across South Asia.
  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.
  Flood and drought assessment in a human-dominated water cycle
  Dr C Rouge
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is an ideal project for a resourceful and driven individual. The successful candidate will develop and hone first-rate analytical, computational and communication skills that will enable them to choose their subsequent career path, whether in academia or industry.
  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).
  Smart Data Analytics for Climate/Weather workflows
  Dr J Kunkel, Prof B Lawrence
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Efficient post-processing of climate and weather data is key for the data analysis. At the moment, scientists use toolkits from Python like Pangeo and command line tools like CDO.
  Trapped lee waves as a source of low-level drag on the atmosphere
  Dr MA Teixeira, Dr SL Gray
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atmospheric models used for numerical weather prediction and climate modelling have large uncertainties in their representation of small-scale processes that contribute to uncertainties in the large-scale movement of air termed the atmospheric circulation.
  Enhancing predictability in chaotic systems
  Dr F Ginelli, Prof A Politi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The goal of this research program – which involves theoretical analysis and numerical simulations -- is to apply fundamental results and recent developments (to which the supervisors significantly contributed) of dynamical system theory to enhance our ability to predict the future evolution of complex and chaotic dynamical systems -- such as weather and climate systems.
  Flow processes and turbulent exchange in urban canopies
  Dr J Barlow, Dr O Coceal
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most of the world’s population now experiences an urban version of weather extremes and climate change. Accurate forecasting of weather and air quality in cities relies on correctly representing the physics of turbulent exchange between the surface and the overlying atmosphere.
  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.
  Data synthesis and integration for improved climate impact assessment, modelling and policy
  Dr R Cornforth, Dr E Tarnavsky
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is already demonstrated in changes in the frequency and severity of extreme weather events.
