Hydrology PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for European Students (exc UK) in Australia

We have 3 Hydrology PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for European Students (exc UK) in Australia

As a PhD student in Hydrology, you’ll conduct original research into the Earth’s water systems, and how human activity is impacting the availability and condition of water.

What’s it like to study a PhD in Hydrology?

Under the guidance of an expert supervisor, you’ll work towards an extended thesis which will make an original contribution the field of Hydrology. Your research may involve fieldwork such hydrological dye tracing or interception and stemflow measurements, as well as lab-based experimentation.

Possible research areas include:

  • Groundwater chemistry
  • Aqueous geochemistry
  • Contaminant transport
  • Hydrochemical modelling
  • Isotopic analysis
  • Water quality and quantity

You may also be required to complete departmental training in core skills such as research methodology. You’ll have an opportunity to connect the wider academic community through publishing papers and attending conferences.

PhD in Hydrology entry requirements

The minimum entry requirement for a PhD in Hydrology is normally a 2:1 undergraduate degree in a relevant subject, though a Masters may occasionally be required.

PhD in Hydrology funding options

The main body funding PhDs in Hydrology in the UK are the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC). Some projects have funding attached, meaning you’ll receive full coverage of your tuition fees and living costs.

However, many Hydrology PhDs will only accept self-funded students. It is possible to self-fund your PhD by combining the UK government’s doctoral loan with additional sources of funding such as support from your university, a grant from a charity or trust, or part-time work.

PhD in Hydrology careers

PhD graduates in Hydrology have many career options, from working in local and national government or policy analysis to water resources planning and flood risk management. You may also choose to continue your research career with a postdoctoral position leading to an eventual permanent role at a university.
