  SCENARIO - Predicting the ecological and societal impacts of species on the move with climate change in the UK
  Dr N Pettorelli, Dr J Neumann, Prof K Norris, Dr L Shaffrey
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is a growing recognition that the redistribution of species driven by a changing climate is creating profound challenges for societies and regional economies around the globe.
  ONE Planet DTP - Improving flood risk management in small or flashy catchments under climate change (OP20239)
  Prof H Fowler
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the impact of climate change on high flows is important for making sound land use planning and flood risk management decisions.
  QUADRAT DTP: How do biotic interactions shape the response of species to climate change across temperate and tropical biomes? A global study on damselflies (Odonata: Zygoptera)
  Dr L Lancaster, Dr P Caplat
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Freshwater habitats cover a relatively small area of the globe, yet harbour disproportionally high biodiversity. Climate change is currently dramatically impacting freshwater systems via more extreme drought and flooding, altered patterns of snowmelt, and via increasing air and water temperatures.
  QUADRAT DTP: The impacts of climate change and extreme weather events on cyanobacteria blooms in lakes
  Dr H Roe, Dr A Douglas
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There has been an increased awareness in recent years of the problems associated with harmful cyanobacteria algal blooms (cyanoHABs) in freshwater systems.
  ONE Planet DTP - Where the wild things go: finding and creating refugia from climate change in the Wildwood of Border Country (Ref: OP20242)
  Dr A Suggitt
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Description. Accelerating climate change is exacerbating the extinction crisis, and one sixth of species now face global extinction by the end of the century.
  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: 31 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.
  ONE Planet DTP - Developing a methodology to measure and optimise the impacts of climate change on urban building environment (Ref: OP20283)
  Dr Z Qian
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Following the Government heating and energy target guidelines to improved building performance it is important to consider building design and human activities when examining the impact of changing microclimate due to climate change.
  QUADRAT DTP: Climate change impacts on seasonal water storage and flow: implications for environmental management
  Dr J Geris, Dr D Mullan
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Catchment water storage is one of the most important functions controlling water availability and streamflow. Where and when water is stored and how different ’stores’ (e.g.
  Sticking your neck out - saving giraffes in a climate changed world (PRICEJU20SCIEC)
  Dr J Price, Prof R Warren
Application Deadline: 30 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Giraffes are in trouble! .
  Climate change influences on landsliding in the British Isles
  Dr M Ibsen, Dr A P Dykes, Dr S Downward
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change predictions for the British Isles generally indicate that there will be higher winter rainfall in future, but with more frequent high intensity rainfall events at any time of year.
