  Processing and fluxes of DOM in peat-pools and lochans
  Dr P Gilbert, Dr D Mayor
Application Deadline: 13 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Peatlands are the UKs largest carbon store, yet they have been largely degraded by poor land management. Combined with predicted increased likelihood of extreme weather events (e.g.
  Deep Learning and Bayesian Time Series Analysis for Probabilistic Post-Processing in Weather Forecasting. PhD in Mathematics (NERC GW4+ DTP)
  Dr S Das
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Lead Supervisor. Dr Saptarshi Das, Department of Mathematics, College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, University of Exeter.
  Developing new UAV-based survey approaches for monitoring tree and soil health indices in SE Asian oil palm plantations
  Dr P Scholefield, Dr R Ewers, Mr J Moat, Dr N McNamara
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Poor tree health in Oil Palm plantations is a primary cause of low yield, typically dealt with by applying high volumes of fertilizers, pesticides, fungicides and herbicides.
  Smart Data Analytics for Climate/Weather workflows
  Dr J Kunkel, Prof B Lawrence
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Efficient post-processing of climate and weather data is key for the data analysis. At the moment, scientists use toolkits from Python like Pangeo and command line tools like CDO.
  Statistical post-processing of ensemble forecasts of compound weather risk. PhD in Mathematics (NERC GW4+ DTP)
  Dr F Kwasniok
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Frank Kwasniok, Department of Mathematics, College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, University of Exeter.
  How will climate change affect organic matter exported from peat?
  Dr C Moody, Prof P Chapman
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Peatlands cover only 2.8% of the Earth but store 50% of the global soil carbon pool which exceeds the carbon stored in all other vegetation types, including the worlds’ forest.
  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: 13 December 2019

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.
  ONE Planet DTP - Deep Sensing of Soil Signals from Sky (Ref: OP20214)
  Dr L Zhang
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. In our daily life such as in a crowded city, we may never notice minor changes every day which are possibly beyond our perceptible ranges.
  PhD Position in Glacier Applied Geophysics
  Dr J Irving
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Applied and Environmental Geophysics Group at the University of Lausanne has an opening for a PhD student.
  Understanding the new environmental risks posed by pollution from the digital economy
  Dr I Burke, Dr R Newton
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The growing consumption of materials in our digital society represents an ever increasing waste stream containing novel and complex mixtures of chemicals, including many oxyanion forming contaminants (OFCs, e.g.
  Artificial Intelligence in volcano seismology and eruption forecasting
  Dr S De Angelis, Prof Y Lavallee, Dr L Zuccarello
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to combine geophysical measurements with methods of Artificial Intelligence to monitor and forecast of volcanic eruptions.

  Dr T Henstock, Prof J Collier, Prof T Minshull
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Continental plates are well-known to deform over broad areas but oceanic plates are often thought of as rigid blocks with narrow boundaries.
  Investigating the role of fire in soil biotic processes and carbon storage at tropical grassland-forest transitions
  Dr J Subke, Dr P Ascough
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

IMPORTANT. The deadline for applications is Jan 10th 2020 at 17:00. However, serious applicants are strongly advised to get in touch by the 20th December to discuss their application.
  QUADRAT DTP: Monitoring environmental change with ambient seismic noise
  Dr D Cornwell, Dr A Newton
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Measuring changes in large-scale natural phenomena in high resolution is difficult, particularly in remote or hazardous locations.
  QUADRAT DTP: New methods for the ’visualisation’ of dynamic and multi-dimensional data in Earth and environmental systems
  Dr C Bond, Prof J McKinley
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Digitalisation and large, multi-dimensional, dynamic data are now the main stay of Earth and Environmental Science, but how we visualise, handle, analyse and make decisions from these datasets is still a significant challenge.
