  Smart Data Analytics for Climate/Weather workflows
  Dr J Kunkel, Prof B Lawrence
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Efficient post-processing of climate and weather data is key for the data analysis. At the moment, scientists use toolkits from Python like Pangeo and command line tools like CDO.
  Image processing and machine learning applied to Earth Observation of the cryosphere (part of the SENSE Centre for Doctoral Training).
  Dr R Bingham, Dr N Gourmelen
Application Deadline: 19 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A number of recent studies have begun to highlight the potential to analyse remote sensing imagery to monitor changes that have occurred to the Earth’s ice sheets, ice caps and glaciers over the last few decades.
  Statistical post-processing of ensemble forecasts of compound weather risk. PhD in Mathematics (NERC GW4+ DTP)
  Dr F Kwasniok
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Frank Kwasniok, Department of Mathematics, College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, University of Exeter.
  How will climate change affect organic matter exported from peat?
  Dr C Moody, Prof P Chapman
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Peatlands cover only 2.8% of the Earth but store 50% of the global soil carbon pool which exceeds the carbon stored in all other vegetation types, including the worlds’ forest.
  SEESALT: Novel ways to ’SEE’ coastal ’SALT’ marshes using low-cost drones and sensors
  Dr D Green, Dr D Mauquoy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Saltmarshes are found extensively along low wave energy coastlines resulting from fine sediment accumulation and vegetation establishment.
  PhD Position in Glacier Applied Geophysics
  Dr J Irving
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Applied and Environmental Geophysics Group at the University of Lausanne has an opening for a PhD student.
  Understanding the impacts of droughts and heatwaves on global energy production and associated GHG emissions, and potential feedbacks with climate.
  Prof J Sheffield, Dr F Eigenbrod
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Power generation is highly dependent on water resources, either directly from hydropower (16% of global production) or via cooling of thermoelectric power plants (70% globally), and therefore subject to reductions during droughts and heatwaves.
  QUADRAT DTP: Monitoring environmental change with ambient seismic noise
  Dr D Cornwell, Dr A Newton
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Measuring changes in large-scale natural phenomena in high resolution is difficult, particularly in remote or hazardous locations.
  Ice sheets, fans and drifts: how glacial-marine processes and climate change have built the West Antarctic continental margin
  Dr R Larter, Prof Julian Dowdeswell
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The West Antarctic Ice Sheet has advanced and retreated across its adjacent continental margin many times during the Neogene and Quaternary, possibly collapsing entirely during the last interglacial (Dutton et al., 2015).
  ONE Planet DTP - A new 3D hydrogeological dataset for the UK to drive projections of hydrological extremes under climate change (OP20296)
  Dr E Lewis
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Physically based (PB) hydrological models are essential for flood and water resources management under changing climate and land use patterns.
  ONE Planet DTP - Developing novel geophysical tools to investigate urban plant-water processes.
  Dr R Stirling
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD aims to improve our understanding of how street vegetation influence soil-water capacity in the built environment through the use of geophysical tomography.
  ONE Planet DTP - Effects of changing climate on a tropical peat in Brazil: greenhouse gas sink or source? (OP202046)
  Dr G Abbott
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Campina do Encantado is a tropical low-altitude bog in southern São Paulo State (Brazil) that is releasing significant amounts of the greenhouse gas methane.
  ONE Planet DTP - Novel low-lost, wide area monitoring of landslides: precursors and event detection (OP20245)
  Dr S Dunning
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Landslides triggered by intense or prolonged rainfall are common in the U.K. and can cause significant disruptions to life. The successful management of landslides that threaten people or infrastructure can be broadly grouped into to strategies.
  ONE Planet DTP - Ocean wave field and climate monitoring with a GNSS Wave Glider (OP20292)
  Dr N Penna
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ocean wave field monitoring is needed for climatology, as it controls the input of wind stress into the oceanic mixed layer and thereby serves as a control for the global ocean climate.
  ONE Planet DTP - Quantifying absorbing and scattering properties of atmospheric aerosol using machine learning and deep learning algorithms (OP20267)
  Dr T Carruthers
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aerosol can strongly absorb and scatter light depending on their physico-chemical properties. Quantifying aerosol-light interaction is vital for evaluating the aerosol contribution to radiative forcing (warming and cooling effect) on the atmosphere that influences global warming.
