  How will climate change affect organic matter exported from peat?
  Dr C Moody, Prof P Chapman
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Peatlands cover only 2.8% of the Earth but store 50% of the global soil carbon pool which exceeds the carbon stored in all other vegetation types, including the worlds’ forest.
  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: 24 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.
  Our Place Our Future: Developing and testing an integrated climate risk framework for heritage sites in Scotland.
  Dr K Crowley
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is not only threatening our future but destroying our past. Working with Historic Environment Scotland (HES) this project will examine the impacts to heritage sites in Scotland under future extreme climate risk scenarios.
  Erosion hazards in river catchments: How resilient is critical infrastructure to climate change?
  Dr J Cooper, Prof A Plater
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The overall aim is to quantify how future climate scenarios will affect the frequency and severity of erosion hazards in catchments, the future risks posed to critical infrastructure and the vulnerability and resilience of these assets.
  Changing extremes at the extremes: how will climate change impact hydroclimatic extremes in the Himalayas?
  Dr M Widmann, Dr A Van Loon, Dr NE Barrand, Dr J Larsen
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The livelihoods of over 1 bn people inhabiting the Himalayan region and the downstream river basins are heavily dependent on agriculture, making them highly vulnerable to water shortages and flood events.
  Water for the Future: Investigating the Effects of Future Land Use and Climate Change on Water Quality in Scotland
  Dr M Glendell, Dr S Halliday, Dr A Gimona
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Water pollution remains the main reason for the failure of many Scottish waterbodies to reach Good Ecological Status under the Water Framework Directive.
  NERC GW4+ DTP Projects 2020: (Changing Planet) Modelling coupled human-water systems: Characterising human-water interactions and their impacts on future water scarcity
  Dr G Coxon
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

By 2050, it is projected that England will be facing severe water supply shortages due to climate change and increasing demand from growing populations and societal development.
  NERC-funded PhD studentships: Departments of Chemical Engineering and Civil & Environmental Engineering, Engineering Imperial College London

Funding Type
