  Studying the formation of ice fragments during freezing and riming using high resolution holographic imaging.
  Research Group: Atmospheric Science
  Dr J Crosier, Dr P Connolly
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ice and mixed phase clouds have important effects in the atmosphere, via interactions with incoming solar radiation and outgoing terrestrial radiation, and generation of precipitation which impacts on the surface.
  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).
  Meltwater Ice-Sheet interactions and the changing climate of Greenland
  Dr A Leeson
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Greenland Ice Sheet (GrIS) is shrinking as Earth’s climate warms. In fact, meltwater which runs off the ice sheet is expected to contribute ~10 cm to global sea level by 2100.
  The role of lateral and tree transport in methane cycling in tropical peatlands
  Dr S Pangala
Application Deadline: 30 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tropical peatlands in Southeast Asia have sequestered carbon over thousands of years and are an important global carbon stock.
  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.
  How predictable are Arctic cyclones?
  Dr K Hodges
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The area of proposed research is the predictability of Arctic cyclones.
  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).
  PhD in Mineral Dust
  Dr C Ryder
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mineral dust is an important component of the Earth system. Dust is uplifted from deserts and arid regions by strong winds, and can be lofted into the atmosphere and transported for thousands of kilometres.
