  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: 31 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.
  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 - Turbulence and Clouds
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr H Weller, Prof P Clark
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The representations of clouds and associated buoyant atmospheric convection are arguably the weakest aspects of weather and climate models, leading to poor forecasts and unreliable projections of the regional impacts of climate change.
  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.
  Ice accretion on wind turbine blades
  Dr Y Lin, Prof J Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The abundant wind resource in cold and high altitude regions in the world is attractive for the increasing demand for renewable wind power production.
  Tropical weather systems and their global impacts: How will they evolve with climate change? (MATTHEWSAU20SCIO)
  Prof A J Matthews, Prof D Stevens
Application Deadline: 30 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The eastern Indian and western Pacific Oceans form the “tropical warm pool”, the largest area of warm ocean on the planet. The warm pool provides the heat and moisture for the most intense atmospheric convection (thousands of cumulonimbus clouds) on Earth.
  Fluid flows above and within porous materials
  Prof D Pokrajac, Dr D Van der A
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fluid mechanics problems often involve fluid flows over porous materials. Examples of practical applications include flow through atmospheric and aquatic vegetation, coastal structures, and movement of biological fluids through various tissues.
  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.
  PhD in Equatorial waves and Tropical cyclons
  Dr K Hodges, Dr G-Y Yang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tropical Cyclones and equatorially-trapped waves are two major components of tropical weather systems. They are responsible for not only high impact weather events (such as extreme precipitation and high speed winds) in the tropics but also weather events in the extratropics through teleconnections.
  PhD in snow microphysics
  Dr C Westbrook
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The formation and evolution of ice particles (snowflakes) in clouds is an important problem in atmospheric physics. Ice particles in clouds influence the radiation budget of the earth.
