  Dr O Stoner
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Oliver Stoner, Department of Mathematics, College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, University of Exeter.
  The Role of Place and Scale on Effectiveness of Temporary Storage Areas for Surface Runoff Attenuation
  Dr M Wilkinson, Dr J Geris, Prof P Hallett
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

This project addresses the need to understand where and at what scale land management could help to improve above and below ground storm water storage for managing floods.
  QUADRAT DTP CASE: Geotechnical Properties of Glacial Tills: Engineering and Environmental Applications
  Dr D Hughes, Prof B Rea
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The geotechnical properties of a substrate (e.g. grain-size, permeability, shear strength) determines how it responds to natural and anthropogenic processes.
  ONE Planet DTP - Developing multidecadal spatial timeseries of climate and land surface conditions over High Mountain Asia using remote sensing imagery (OP20274)
  Dr N Forsythe
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Major Asian river basins arising from the Tibetan Plateau are highly dependent on water resources for food security, employment in agricultural industries.
  New methods for calculating the oceans role in absorbing key greenhouse gases. PhD in Renewable Energy (NERC GW4 + DTP)
  Dr I Ashton
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Ian Ashton, Department of Engineering, College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, University of Exeter.
  Numerical modelling of sediment transportation and surface roughness on vegetated coastal dune systems
  Assoc Prof S Wakes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coasts and coastal communities around the world are vulnerable to sea level increases and intensity of storm events. Vegetated sand dunes are relied upon for protection, buffering coastal communities from the sea.
  OUR CHANGING OCEANS: data science and the marine carbon cycle. PhD in Geography (NERC GW4+ DTP)
  Dr U Schuster
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Ute Schuster, Department of Geography, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter. Additional Supervisors.
  Slope stability and climate change in high-mountain regions: Understanding and predicting geo-hazards.
  Dr A Abellan, Dr B Murphy, Dr J West, Dr D Quincey
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

HIGHLIGHTS. ------------------. Timely project. a game changing approach is urgently needed to improve understanding, model and forecast landslides in mountainous areas.
  Landslide early warning: developing novel geophysical monitoring approaches to ‘see inside’ unstable slopes
  Dr J Chambers, Prof A M Binley
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Slope instability is responsible for considerable social and economic harm. In the UK, impacts are principally economic, through damage and disruption to critical infrastructure (e.g.
  SALine INtrusion in coastal Aquifers (SALINA): Hydrodynamic Assessment and Prediction of Dynamic Response
  Dr G A Hamill
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Currently 53% of people live on the 10% of the earth’s surface that is within 200km of the coast. Meeting the needs of coastal communities forms one of the major challenges facing society in the 21st Century and in particular an engineering solution is needed to the provide sustainable fresh water supplies.
  Can beaver-modified ecosystems mitigate water quality deterioration caused by both point and diffuse source pollution? PhD in Geography (NERC FRESH)
  Dr R Brazier
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Professor Richard Brazier, Department of Geography, University of Exeter. Additional supervisors. Dr Gemma Coxon, School of Geographical Sciences, University of Bristol.
  ONE Planet DTP - Ocean wave field and climate monitoring with a GNSS Wave Glider (OP20292)
  Dr N Penna
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ocean wave field monitoring is needed for climatology, as it controls the input of wind stress into the oceanic mixed layer and thereby serves as a control for the global ocean climate.
  ONE Planet DTP - Global warming and the future of ice caps (Ref: OP202054)
  Prof GH Gudmundsson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ice caps are one of the fastest changing part of the cryosphere. It is estimated that ice caps and glaciers can contribute between 35-40cm of sea level rise.
  Unravelling and modelling endogenous controls of plant respiration. PhD in Geography (NERC GW4+ DTP)
  Prof S Sitch
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Stephen Sitch, Department of Georgraphy, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter. Additional Supervisors.
