  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.
  Towards Conversational Recommender Systems In the Era of Big Data
  Dr H Liang
Applications accepted all year round
To be able to cope with complex, huge, diverse, and dynamic data, people need the assistance of intelligent information systems such as recommender systems for finding, sorting, and filtering the available information.
  SCENARIO: Flow processes and turbulent exchange in urban canopies
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr J Barlow, Dr O Coceal
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
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.
  SCENARIO: Improving our understanding of ice cloud microphysics using new aircraft and multi-wavelength radar measurements
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr C Westbrook, Dr T Stein, Dr S Mason
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Ice particles in clouds play an important role for both weather and climate prediction. Half of all precipitation globally is initiated through the formation of ice, while the radiative impact of ice clouds is very important because of their widespread coverage.
  SCENARIO: The role of post-tropical cyclones for European extreme weather
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr R Schiemann, Dr K Hodges, Dr L Shaffrey, Dr A Baker
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
North Atlantic tropical cyclones typically form at low latitudes off the African coast, then track west and northwestward, and some of them make landfall over Central and North America.
  SCENARIO: Understanding forecast value in complex decision-making systems
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr D Brayshaw, Dr J Methven
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
A forecast is only useful to a decision-maker if it can be acted upon. and only valuable insofar as the resulting action leads to improved outcomes.
  SCENARIO: When (plant) life gets in the way: Investigating how vegetation attenuates sex pheromone odour plumes and communication between conspecifics
  Dr R Girling, Prof A Robins, Prof R Cardé
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
This multi-disciplinary studentship will investigate how the plume dynamics of sex pheromone signals released by moths are attenuated by vegetation and the effects that this has on moth mate searching and ecology.
  Complex network control of stem cell derived cultures
  Prof S Nasuto, Dr E Delivopoulos, Dr Y Hayashi
Applications accepted all year round
"In order to create a next generation of interfaces between prosthetic devices and the nervous system or to create next generation of intelligent robots – hybrids between artificial and biological systems, it is necessary to understand the principles that allow biological networks to achieve control of bodies.
  How birds got their colours
  Prof R M Sibly, Prof M Pagel
Application Deadline: 16 January 2019
Male birds are often brightly coloured and their plumage colour patterns tend to be specific to a species, often varying considerably even among closely related species.
  Intelligent estimation of the structural connectivity of neuronal cultures
  Prof S Nasuto, Dr E Delivopoulos, Dr N Vasudevan
Applications accepted all year round
The vast majority of cognitive theories as well as computational neuroscience models are concentrating on the computational properties of neurons, circuits and systems, effectively reducing intelligence to disembodied information processing engine.
