  A big data virtual investigation of chemistry in the upper troposphere
  Dr E Marais
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The global upper troposphere (8-12 km overhead) is a profoundly important part of the atmosphere that impacts climate, air quality and the chemical composition of the atmosphere.
  A multi-observational approach to understanding urban air quality in Kenya (CENTA2-PHYS6-VAND2)
  Dr J Vande Hey, Dr R Cordell
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Air pollution is major contributor to the burden of disease globally, with more than 4 million premature deaths each year attributed to outdoor fine particulate matter exposure alone.
  Are Rockets the Next Air Pollution Frontier? (CENTA2-PHYS2-MARA1)
  Dr E Marais, Prof R Ambrosi
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Rockets are frequently launched into space and it’s getting cheaper and easier to do so. Even the UK has ambitious plans to host its own horizontal and vertical launch sites.
  Black hole, planets and dynamic accretion discs in astrophysics (AST/2020/NIX)
  Dr C Nixon, Dr S Vaughan
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Accretion discs are central to much of astronomy. they are the birth sites of stars and planets, and they surround supermassive black holes in active galaxies and quasars.
  Characterisation of energetic transients across the spectrum (AST/2020/STA1)
  Dr R Starling, Prof N Tanvir
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

  Chasing convective storm evolution with swarms of space-borne Ka-band radars (CENTA2-PHYS10-BATT1)
  Dr A Battaglia, Prof H Boesch, Dr K Mroz
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Convective storms are the heart of the Earth’s weather and climate system.
  Circulation of the Giant Planets from Infrared Remote Sensing (ATM/2020/FLE)
  Dr L Fletcher, Dr J Nichols
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite four decades of planetary exploration, the physical and chemical processes responsible for the banded appearance of the giant planets remain mysterious.
  Constraining CO2 emission of cities with sensor networks
  Prof H Boesch, Dr J Vande Hey
Application Deadline: 21 November 2019
