  Processing and fluxes of DOM in peat-pools and lochans
  Dr P Gilbert, Dr D Mayor
Application Deadline: 13 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Peatlands are the UKs largest carbon store, yet they have been largely degraded by poor land management. Combined with predicted increased likelihood of extreme weather events (e.g.
  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.
  PhD Position in Glacier Applied Geophysics
  Dr J Irving
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Applied and Environmental Geophysics Group at the University of Lausanne has an opening for a PhD student.
  Understanding the impacts of droughts and heatwaves on global energy production and associated GHG emissions, and potential feedbacks with climate.
  Prof J Sheffield, Dr F Eigenbrod
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Power generation is highly dependent on water resources, either directly from hydropower (16% of global production) or via cooling of thermoelectric power plants (70% globally), and therefore subject to reductions during droughts and heatwaves.
  Stratified shear flows in inclined pipes
  Dr Y Tanino, Dr D Van der A
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stably stratified shear flows are ubiquitous in the environment and industrial systems. In the atmosphere such flows are associated with clear air turbulence.
  ONE Planet DTP - A new 3D hydrogeological dataset for the UK to drive projections of hydrological extremes under climate change (OP20296)
  Dr E Lewis
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Physically based (PB) hydrological models are essential for flood and water resources management under changing climate and land use patterns.
  Environmental applications of fluorescence spectroscopy
  Dr C Bradley, Prof D M Hannah, Dr K Khamis, Dr S Manaseki-Holland
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fluorescence spectroscopy enables microbiological activity in water to be characterised rapidly as organic molecules fluoresce when excited at certain wavelengths of light.
  Assessing the impact of peatland restoration on freshwater ecosystems
  Dr C Bryce, Prof P Johnes, Prof R Pancost
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Decades of degradation have turned the UK’s peatlands from sinks to sources of organic carbon, with adverse consequences for adjacent freshwater ecosystems.
  Temporal and Spatial Carbon Cycle Dynamics of an Evolving Tropical Delta (IAPETUS 2 Project)
  Dr A Bass, Dr P Gulliver
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Deltas and associated wetlands are a relatively minor surface feature, comprising less than 4-6% of the terrestrial land area. However, deltas have a disproportionately critical role in carbon stocks and fluxes, a role that is subject to dynamic changes both natural and anthropogenic.
  Quantifying the role of natural and anthropogenically driven geomorphic disturbances in forest landscapes on global carbon emissions
  Prof SE Darby, Prof J Dash, Dr GJ Roberts
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. This project aims to quantify (1985-2020) the extent to which the world’s forests have been fragmented by geomorphic disturbances (landsliding and river channel migration) and explore the implications with respect to determining the impacts of this fragmentation and loss on the global carbon cycle.
  The Evolution of Fluvial Sediment Delivery from Asia’s Rivers to the Oceans: Trends and Causes
  Dr J Leyland, Prof SE Darby
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. This project aims to quantify and explain variations (1985-2020) in the discharge of fluvial sediment to the oceans, with a focus on the continent of Asia.
