  Investigating the impact of climate change on riverine flooding (Advert Reference: SF18/MCE/MOTTA)
  Dr D Motta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Riverine flooding evaluation typically includes a hydrologic analysis to estimate the flood peak discharge or hydrograph for a reference return period, and a hydraulic model to compute the corresponding water surface elevations and flooded areas.
  LNG sloshing and Leidenfrost droplet dynamics – modelling gas-cushioned liquid-solid impacts with phase change
  Dr P D Hicks, Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The impact of liquefied natural gas (LNG) with the walls of its containing tank and the impact of droplets with very hot surfaces are two examples of liquid-solid impacts in which the liquid may be close to thermodynamic equilibrium with the surrounding gas/vapour.
  Data synthesis and integration for improved climate impact assessment, modelling and policy
  Dr R Cornforth, Dr E Tarnavsky
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is already demonstrated in changes in the frequency and severity of extreme weather events.
  Global Environmental Monitoring and Policy (GEMaP) Centre for Doctoral Training: Quantifying the risks and impacts of climate change on water resources in Scotland.
  Dr J Roberts, Dr J Quigley
Application Deadline: 1 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Essential. The applicant should. Hold a minimum of an upper second class undergraduate degree (or equivalent) in subjects relevant to physical or environmental sciences, social sciences or maths.
  Sustainable Marine Ecosystems and Offshore Energy: A Bayesian Modelling Approach
  Dr B E Scott, Dr N D Trifonova, Dr J H Hartley
Application Deadline: 12 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

To avoid catastrophic climate change the world needs to switch to renewable energy. This will require the placement and operation of very large offshore windfarms (fixed and floating) as well as tidal stream, lagoons and wave energy developments.
  The changing nature of UK flooding - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Dr M Pregnolato, Prof T Wagener
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

About the Project. In the last centuries, flooding has produced devastating societal and economic losses in the UK, as well as in other countries.
  Evaluating and improving high-resolution high-impact weather numerical weather forecasts
  Dr RS Plant, Dr T Stein
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over the past decade, high-resolution numerical weather forecasting has become practical using so-called “convection-permitting” models for lead times of 1-24 hours.
  Crisis, transformation and collaborative practice: agroecology and the co-creation of territorial food systems
  Dr L Owen
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Welsh agri-food systems centred around small-scale family farming are heading towards crisis.
  Flood mitigation schemes in rural communities in the south west of England
  Dr K Clarke, Dr A P Dykes, Dr M Ibsen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There have been several severe flood events in southwest England in recent years, including Boscastle in 2004, Dawlish in 2014 and Coverack in 2014 and July 2017.
  Quantifying aquatic and gaseous carbon export from degraded peatlands: role in terrestrial carbon budgets and implications for national greenhouse gas inventory reporting
  Dr M Saunders
Application Deadline: 8 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The export of Dissolved Organic Carbon (DOC) and evasion of carbon dioxide (CO2) from inland waters is increasingly being recognized as a key part of the terrestrial carbon (C) cycle.
