  Unveiling the 4D variability in the lithospheric cradle of the Antarctic ice sheet
  Dr F Ferraccioli, Dr C Green
Application Deadline: 19 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project leverages on a new EO project of ESA, 4D Antarctica, which aims to investigate and model the Antarctic lithosphere and assess its effects on geothermal heat flux variability.
  Automatic Tree Recognition for ecological understanding and satellite calibration (part of the SENSE Centre for Doctoral Training)
  Dr S Hancock
Application Deadline: 19 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project summary. Knowledge of forest structure, biomass and leaf area is essential for understanding processes in ecology, climate studies and meteorology.
  The response of savannas and dry forests to global change: disentangling the effects of climate change, land use and changing CO2 (part of the SENSE Centre for Doctoral Training)
  Dr C Ryan
Application Deadline: 19 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project background. Savannas and dry forests are in flux, with both increasing and decreasing woody biomass in many areas. Why this is happening is unknown, but it is thought to be linked to both local land-use (e.g.
  Hazard monitoring from Space: Next generation InSAR time series analysis (part of the SENSE Centre for Doctoral Training)
  Prof A Hooper
Application Deadline: 19 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Radar Interferometry (InSAR) is a technique that provides measurements of surface displacement from Space, potentially with millimetric accuracy.
  Impact of long-term changes to ice-cover and permafrost on landslide and flood risk in the Swiss Alps (part of the SENSE Centre for Doctoral Training)
  Dr A Abellan, Dr H Pritchard, Dr J West, Dr J Elliott
Application Deadline: 19 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

CONTEXT / BACKGROUND. High mountainous areas all over the world are highly prone to multiple hazards, including interacting landslides and flooding, which cascade across national borders, affecting critical economic infrastructure and human settlements.
  Measuring, modelling and predicting the hole in the Earth’s magnetic field (part of the SENSE Centre for Doctoral Training)
  Dr P Livermore
Application Deadline: 19 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The geomagnetic field is a fundamental component of Earth. Wrapping around our planet like an invisible force-field, it protects life from harmful solar radiation and influences the impacts of space weather on modern technologies, such as satellites and electrical power grids.
  ONE Planet DTP - Flood infrastructure characterisation by drone, satellite and geospatial informatics (OP20264)
  Prof J Mills
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Flooding is considered by the UK Government to be one of the top risks to the nation, the 2017 UK Climate Change Risk Assessment identifying it as the uppermost environmental risk over the next century.
  ONE Planet DTP - Integrating remote- and in-situ observations for improved glacial lake hazard monitoring and assessment (OP20229)
  Dr W Xiao
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Catastrophic glacial lake outburst floods (GLOFs) pose a risk to life and can cause significant damage to downstream infrastructure, settlements, and property in mountainous regions.
  Analysis of pathogen determinants recognized by the hypervariable immune receptor Dscam
  Dr M Soller
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. To mount an immune response, host organisms must first recognize the pathogen with which they are infected. The first line of defense against pathogen infection in animals is provided through the innate immune response.
  Iron Snow in Planetary Cores
  Dr C Davies, Dr A Walker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Planetary magnetic fields exhibit remarkable variability in both strength and structure. These fields are generated in metallic cores and thus provide a unique probe into the dynamics and evolution of planetary interiors.
  Using multibeam sonar to monitor animal behaviour and environmental interactions at marine renewable energy sites
  Dr B Williamson, Prof V Nikora, Dr J Wilson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

To date, there are 8.5 GW of installed UK offshore wind capacity, and it is estimated 20% of current UK electricity demand could be met with wave and tidal stream sources.
  Detection and quantification of local methane sources using novel high-resolution satellite data
  Prof M P Chipperfield, Prof E Gloor
Application Deadline: 19 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Anthropogenic greenhouse gases are increasing the Earth’s temperature. Among these greenhouse gases, methane (CH4) is second in importance after carbon dioxide (CO2).
  SCENARIO - Causal discovery algorithms for the study of climate change impacts on the global water cycle
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr M.I. Hegglin, Dr V Ojha
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The water cycle plays a critical role in shaping the global environment and supporting life on Earth. Climate change is predicted to lead to changes in the water cycle, affect available water resources, and as a consequence endanger the livelihoods of societies especially in the developing world.
