  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Mathematics of Planet Earth
We are seeking excellent candidates for 16 fully funded PhD positions, as part of the forth cohort of the newly established EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in the Mathematics of Planet Earth (MPE), jointly run by Imperial College London and the University of Reading.
  SCENARIO: How do trees affect the hydrological cycle?
  Dr E Blyth, Prof A Verhoef, Dr E Robinson, Dr T Nisbet
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
One of the least constrained components of the hydrological cycle is the amount of rainfall that is captured by the vegetation and recycled back to the atmosphere – the Interception.
  SCENARIO: Quantifying the flow and nutrient dynamic changes for a major flood relief scheme in the lower River Thames to better manage water quality and aquatic ecology
  Dr M Bowes, Mr M Clegg, Dr S Robinson, Dr M Hutchins
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
The Thames basin is very densely populated, containing one fifth of the UK population. It floods regularly, and climate change projections suggest that flooding will increase over the coming century, with 15,000 homes being at risk of inundation within the lower reaches of the catchment.
  SCENARIO: The impacts of long-term declines in insect abundance on ecosystem function
  Mr D Roy, Prof T Oliver, Prof J Thomas, Dr T Johns
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
The plight of insects has generated worldwide attention from the scientific community and wider public. Recent interest was stimulated by a 27 year study(1) suggesting a loss of 75% in the biomass of flying insects from Protected Areas in Germany, quickly labelled as ‘ecological Armageddon’.
  SCENARIO - Improving river flood forecasts using machine learning and water observations from river camera images
  Dr V Ojha, Dr S L Dance
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
We aim to draw water information of from river cameras for river flood forecasting using machine learning algorithms. This project involves processing of a large volume of data (river camera images) and analogue measurements on river observation.
  The Artificial Intelligence Enabled Smart LED Lighting for Eco and Assisted Living Space
  Prof X Hong, Dr V Ojha
Applications accepted all year round
Three-year International Studentship for January 2019. We are offering a partial international studentship on the following topic, with 50-70% overseas tuition fees dependent on the qualifications of candidate.
  The Economics of Superstars: Wages in Sport - understanding using primary data the changes over the postwar period in sport for its foremost performers
  Dr J Reade, Dr S Jewell
Applications accepted all year round
The work of Sherwin Rosen (1981) established a literature on the economics of superstars - an attempt to explain the very high premia top performers in a given field are able to attract.
  Applications of a conservation-based moving mesh method forthe solution of multi-dimensional PDE problems with moving boundaries
  Prof M Baines
Applications accepted all year round
The viability of conservative-based moving mesh finite difference and finite element methods for. the solution of PDE problems with moving boundaries.
  SCENARIO :Data synthesis and integration for improved climate impact assessment, modelling and policy
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr R Cornforth, Dr E Tarnavsky
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Climate change is already demonstrated in changes in the frequency and severity of extreme weather events.
  SCENARIO: Bias correction in Data Assimilation
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr A Fowler, Dr A S Lawless
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Data assimilation, the process of initializing a computer model forecast using the latest observational data, has proven fundamental to the accuracy of modern day weather forecasting.
