  Improving our understanding of ice cloud microphysics using new aircraft and multi-wavelength radar measurements
  Dr C Westbrook, Dr T Stein, Dr S Mason
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Sunlight exposure and cutaneous production of vitamin D in Black African/Afro-Caribbean adults
  Dr M Farrar, Prof L Rhodes, Prof A Webb
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our main source of vitamin D is through skin exposure to ultraviolet radiation (UVR) in sunlight. Vitamin D is essential for healthy bones and is associated with reduced incidence of several cancers and immune-mediated disorders.
  Total Atmospheric Emissions from the Biosphere
  Dr W J Bloss, Dr L Kramer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The dominant source of hydrocarbons to the atmosphere is vegetation – biogenic volatile organic compounds or BVOCs. In the atmosphere, BVOCs undergo chemical processing, leading to the formation of secondary pollutants such as ozone and organic aerosol particles, affecting human and environmental health and climate.
  PhD in Engineering: Quantum-enhanced atmospheric sensor for airborne hazard identification and tracking
  Dr M Clerici, Dr M P J Lavery
Application Deadline: 15 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for a talented and passion-driven candidate to fulfil a 4-years PhD Scholarship at the University of Glasgow. The ideal candidate is a Physics or Engineering graduate, with 2:1 or higher (or equivalent) degree.
  How can forests help the UK move towards net-zero greenhouse gas emissions?
  Dr C Scott, Dr S Arnold, Prof P Forster
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In order to limit warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius above the pre-industrial period, global carbon dioxide emissions must reach net-zero by around the middle of the 21st century and become negative thereafter [1].
  The global carbon cycle budget imbalance
  Dr A Rap, Dr D Spracklen
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will use state-of-the-art models to investigate the extent to which improved representation of biosphere-atmosphere processes reduces the global carbon cycle budget imbalance.
  Understanding how climate change affects the tropical rain belt over Africa and its variability
  Dr J Marsham, Dr A Maycock
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The tropics cover 40% of Earth’s area, include 36% of its land, and are home to 40% of its people. Africa is the continent with the largest tropical land mass, and its rapidly growing population includes many of the people who are most vulnerable to climate change.
  Experimental Aerodynamics and Environmental Flows
  Research Group: Aerodynamics and Flight Mechanics
  Dr C Vanderwel
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Dr Christina Vanderwel. Project description. There are two openings for PhD students to work on “Simulating urban air pollution in the lab”.
  Aurora caused by energetic proton precipitation into the polar atmosphere
  Dr D Whiter, Dr R Fear, Prof B Lanchester
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The aurora is a result of energised charged particles (electrons and protons) travelling down the Earth’s magnetic field lines and colliding with the neutral atmosphere.
  Fine-scale electric fields and Joule heating from observations of the Aurora
  Dr R Fear, Dr D Whiter, Prof B Lanchester
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The Earth’s aurora borealis (northern lights) are a spectacular natural phenomenon.
