  Understanding atmospheric Hg redox transformations from novel field observations and 3D atmospheric Hg models.
  Dr Aurelien Dommergue
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atmospheric oxidation of the dominant emitted Hg(0) form is a key process whereby Hg from natural and anthropogenic sources is converted to more soluble and reactive Hg(II) species that will be deposited to ecosystems.
  New experimental constraints on atmospheric Hg red-ox reactions.
  Dr M Horvat
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The main objective is to understand aqueous Hg red-ox mechanisms and rates from an experimental perspective.
  Dynamics of Midlatitude and Tropical Convective Storms
  Prof D Schultz, Prof G Vaughan, Dr L Garcia-Carreras
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Convection is ubiquitous in the atmosphere. Although the ingredients of deep moist convection are well known (lift, instability, and moisture), how those ingredients come together to produce the observed panoply of convective storms worldwide remains an active area of research.
  A Comparative Study of Metallic Ions in the Atmospheres of Earth and Mars
  Prof J Plane
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metals are injected into planetary atmospheres by the ablation of interplanetary dust particles. The major species (Fe, Mg and Na) exist as atoms and ions that are excellent tracers of dynamics and chemistry.
  Assessing the capacity of seagrass meadows in the Solent (UK) for blue carbon sequestration
  Dr F Ragazzola, Dr S Reynolds,, Dr M Cerasuolo
Application Deadline: 23 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully-funded three year PhD to commence in October 2020. The PhD will be based in the Faculty of Science and Health, and will be supervised by Dr Federica Ragazzola, Dr Sarah Reynolds and Dr Marianna Cerasuolo.
  Computational Fluid Dynamics Modelling of Tornadoes along Quasi-Linear Convective Systems
  Research Group: Atmospheric Science
  Prof D Schultz, Dr A Revell, Dr A Skillen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The UK experiences as many tornadoes as the USA as a whole. 1.2 vs 1.3 tornadoes per 10,000 km2 per year on average (Mulder and Schultz 2015).
  Machine learning based movement tracking from Internet-of-Things [IoT] devices to better understand the link between human behaviour and environmental stressors in cities
  Research Group: Atmospheric Science
  Dr D Topping, Prof J Evans
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The population in cities around the world is growing. Eighty-five per cent of humanity – some nine billion people - will live in cities by the end of this century.
  Unlocking clinopyroxene records of magma and mantle oxygen fugacity
  Research Group: Geoscience
  Dr D Neave, Dr M Hartley, Dr R Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Subduction recycles oceanic lithosphere formed at mid-ocean ridges back into the Earth’s convecting mantle, creating much of the deep compositional heterogeneity we now see reflected in the diversity of magmas erupted at mid-ocean ridges and ocean islands.
  Global Hg modelling to test scenarios and Hg reduction strategies.
  Dr N Pirrone
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

To develop modelling tools to simulate emission scenarios reflecting future Hg reduction policies on a global scale. To evaluate the impact of global emission changes in Europe.
  Thermal Properties of Energetic Materials PhD
  Dr C Stennet, Prof J Akhavan
Application Deadline: 2 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Slower burning materials such as propellants develop much lower pressures compared to detonating explosives, but over a longer time period, that may well lead to an effectively-static load on a structure.
  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).
  Fully funded PhD Scholarships in the School of Earth, Atmosphere and Environment

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fully funded PhD Scholarship Opportunities, Potential immediate start. School of Earth, Atmosphere and Environment. Scholarship opportunity's with immediate or early 2019 start for applicants with exceptional tertiary qualifications.
  Tracking changes in Archean ocean chemistry: Experimental constraints on the magnitude of stable isotope fractionation during the development of banded iron formations.
  Dr A McCoy West
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD projects which will place new constraints on the evolution of the early Earth, which encompass both high and low temperature geochemistry, isotope geochemistry and igneous/metamorphic petrology are available at Monash University, Melbourne, Australia.
  Tracking changes in Archean ocean chemistry: New insights by applying a coupled stable isotope approach in banded iron formations
  Dr A McCoy West
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD projects which will place new constraints on the evolution of the early Earth, which encompass both high and low temperature geochemistry, isotope geochemistry and igneous/metamorphic petrology are available at Monash University, Melbourne, Australia.
  Aerobiology and the Arctic - microbial colonization of remote polar environments.(Ref: SF20/APP/PEARCE3)
  Prof D Pearce
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The rate of dispersal to an ecosystem can significantly influence ecosystem dynamics. Aerial transport has also been identified as an important source of biological input to remote locations.
