  Fully funded PhD Studentship: Computational / data science techniques to improve and integrate weather forecasting in business decision-making
  Prof M D Piggott
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a four year full-time PhD studentship to work on a research project jointly with Imperial College London (the departments of Earth Science & Engineering, Physics and Mathematics and Shell (the Data Science Centre for Excellence).
  PhD Studentship Opportunity in Numerical simulation of the influence of urban trees on roadside pollutant dispersion
  Prof P Kumar
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Urban roadside green furniture such as trees and hedges could efficiently reduce exposure to roadside pollutants. Their physical properties such as leaf surfaces can act as biological filters.
  SCENARIO - Enhancing forecasting flood inundation mapping through data assimilation
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Prof S L Dance, Dr D Mason
Application Deadline: 24 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 - Investigating the climate feedbacks that will determine the fate of the Greenland ice sheet
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr R Smith, Dr J Gregory, Dr J Robson
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sea level change is one of the mostly widely recognised and potentially serious consequences of climate change due to emissions of greenhouse gases.
  Raindrops, pesticides, and oil spills – droplet interactions with porous and textured surfaces
  Dr P D Hicks, Dr Y Tanino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Droplet interactions with porous and textured surfaces play a crucial role in many important physical processes including the spraying of plant leaves with…
  ONE Planet DTP - Improving UK Met Office predictions of Arctic Weather (Ref: OP20212)
  Dr N Rutter
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is part of the ONE Planet DTP. Find out more here. https://research.ncl.ac.uk/one-planet/. High quality Arctic weather forecasts are urgently needed for northern communities, polar shipping navigability and natural resource policy decisions.
  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.
  SCENARIO - Developing an urban canopy model for improved weather forecasts in cities
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Prof J Barlow, Dr O Coceal, Dr M Carpentieri
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most of the world’s population now experiences an urban version of weather extremes and climate change. Accurate forecasting of weather and air quality in cities relies on correctly representing the physics of turbulent exchange between the surface and the overlying atmosphere.
  SCENARIO - Trapped lee waves as a source of low-level drag on the atmosphere
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr MA Teixeira, Dr SL Gray
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atmospheric models used for numerical weather prediction and climate modelling have large uncertainties in their representation of small-scale processes that contribute to uncertainties in the large-scale movement of air termed the atmospheric circulation.
  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.
