  Dr C Birch, Dr J Marsham, Dr R Neely
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Maritime Continent in Southeast Asia is a key region in the global weather and climate system. Its complex island geography and position among the warmest oceans on Earth lead to a multi-scale concoction of severe atmospheric convective and dynamical weather systems.

  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr RS Plant, Prof P Clark
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

  Integrated mathematical modelling and experimental research into interactions between microorganisms
  Dr J U Kreft
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our group aims to combine theoretical & experimental approaches to understand major problems in the ecology and evolution of microbes.
  Iron Snow in Planetary Cores
  Dr C Davies, Dr A Walker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Planetary magnetic fields exhibit remarkable variability in both strength and structure. These fields are generated in metallic cores and thus provide a unique probe into the dynamics and evolution of planetary interiors.
  Life and death of chemical reaction fronts
  Dr T Mueller, Dr S Piazolo
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the geosphere, fluid-mediated mineral reactions are of pivotal importance in governing the redistribution of elements and isotopes.
  Predicting the future: the paradox of transgenerational non-genetic inheritance in evolution (MAKLAKOVUBIO20ARIES)
  Dr A Maklakov, Prof T Chapman, Dr S Immler
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. Parental environments can affect offspring performance over many generations.
  Unravelling the mysteries of air quality above polar snow and ice using the isotopic fingerprints of reactive nitrogen (FREYUBAS20ARIES)
  Dr M Frey, Prof J Kaiser
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. Climate and environment in polar and high-altitude regions are particularly sensitive to anthropogenic perturbation.
  Fish Swimming Dynamics and Behaviour in the Vicinity of a Fish Exclusion Screen
  Dr C A M E Wilson
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project will examine the effectiveness of different fish exclusion screens, to enable fish to safely remain in the main river system and allow safe passage.
  How hot is the bottom of Earth’s mantle?
  Dr A Walker, Dr C Davies, Dr A Nowacki
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Can you combine geophysics, fluid dynamics and mineralogy to construct a deep-Earth thermometer and better constrain Earth’s energy budget?.
  Layers? No Layers? Or both: Multi-disciplinary study of partially stratified layers in Earth’s outer core
  Dr S Rost, Dr J Mound, Dr A Nowacki, Dr C Davies
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Earth’s magnetic field is essential for life on Earth and is produced in Earth’s outer core. Numerical models of the geodynamo show that a combination of chaotic convection of the liquid iron-nickel alloy and Earth’s rotation produces the flow structures essential for the geodynamo process.
  SCENARIO - Detecting severe weather with radars for observations-based nowcasting
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr T Stein, Dr C Westbrook
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Met Office have recently upgraded their weather radars to have Doppler and dual-polarization capabilities, which has produced a wealth of new measurements for data assimilation, model evaluation, and forecasting purposes.
  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 - 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 - 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.

  Dr Z Luo, Prof S Grimmond
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

With rapid global urbanization, more than 50% population now live in cities, and it will be projected to be 70% by 2050. Our living environment is exposed to overheating risk due to the combination of climate extreme, i.e., heatwave and urban heat island.
