  ONE Planet DTP - Designing Electric vehicle Commuter travel ENvironments for fuTure LifestYles (DECENTLY) (OP20309)
  Dr D Dissanayake
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

As a means to mitigate impending climate change and air quality issues associated to transportation emissions, the UK is set a target for 60% of new cars to be electric vehicles (EVs) by 2030.
  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.
  Governing effective marine protected areas: Backing the blue belt through governance structures
  Dr G Reinhardt, Dr T Cameron, Dr C Sweeting
Application Deadline: 2 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This competition is open to UK and EU nationals only, subject to certain conditions. Apply to the University of Essex for a place to study by Monday 20 January 2020.
  PhD in evolutionary biology - examining the evolution of interactions between species
  Prof R Freckleton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Evolutionary biology is underpinned by models for the evolution of species and their traits. The growing body of phylogenetic information, as well as increases in computational power allows us to develop and test novel models and theories of evolution.
  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.
  SCENARIO - Understanding Acute Oak Decline using X-ray micro-tomography and leaf reflectance: linking reduced tree water transport capacity to changes in xylem and leaf cellular structure.
  Dr F Gerard, Dr G Barrett
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

First recorded in the UK in the early 1900’s, Acute Oak Decline (AOD) is widely recognised as a threat to native English oaks. Outbreaks of disease have gone through several historic and distinct episodes with the current, ongoing spread having started around 2002.
  SCENARIO - Capturing extremes in physics-based modelling of near-Earth Space Weather
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr C Watt, Prof P Williams
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Space Weather is the name given to the natural variability of the plasma and magnetic field conditions in near-Earth Space. In the Earth’s outer radiation belt – a region of space between around 2.5 and 10 Earth radii surrounding our planet – high energy electrons are trapped in the Earth’s magnetic field.
  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: 31 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.
  SCENARIO - Detecting severe weather with radars for observations-based nowcasting
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr T Stein, Dr C Westbrook
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Met Office have recently upgraded their weather radars to have Doppler and dual-polarization capabilities, which has produced a wealth of new measurements for data assimilation, model evaluation, and forecasting purposes.
  SCENARIO - Enhancing forecasting flood inundation mapping through data assimilation
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Prof S L Dance, Dr D Mason
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Flooding is major risk for lives and livelihoods around the world. In Europe alone, the annual cost due to flood damage is expected to rise to 100 billion EUR by the year 2080, due to a combination of climate change and socio-economic growth.
  SCENARIO - Generating and evaluating atmospheric dispersion volcanic ash forecast ensembles
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr T Frame, Dr H Dacre
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Volcanic ash poses a significant hazard to aircraft. When ash is ingested into engines it can cause engine failure, putting the lives of aircrew and passengers at risk.
  SCENARIO - Using high-resolution climate models to predict increases in atmospheric turbulence
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Prof P Williams, Dr R Schiemann
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atmospheric turbulence is the leading cause of in-flight injuries to air travellers and flight attendants. Tens of thousands of aircraft encounter severe turbulence annually, injuring hundreds of people and causing structural damage to planes.
  SCENARIO - Climate change and harmful algal growth using laboratory experiments, satellite remote sensing and biogeochemical modelling
  Dr S Roy
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Marine harmful algae cause huge economic and ecological damage through the production of toxins and removal of oxygen from marine waters, affecting the marine wildlife and commercial aquaculture.
  SCENARIO - Predicting the ecological and societal impacts of species on the move with climate change in the UK
  Dr N Pettorelli, Dr J Neumann, Prof K Norris, Dr L Shaffrey
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is a growing recognition that the redistribution of species driven by a changing climate is creating profound challenges for societies and regional economies around the globe.
