  Data Analytics For Pore Water Pressure - New Tools For Sustainable Groundwater and Engineering Projects
  Prof W Timms
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This new PhD scholarship will develop advanced pore pressure analysis for groundwater systems with engineering applications in civil construction, mining operations and water supply systems.
  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

PhD 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.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  GW4 FRESH CDT PhD Studentship: Chemical and ecological effects of combined sewer overflows on rivers
  Prof J Hofman
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Centre for Doctoral Training in Freshwater Biosciences and Sustainability (GW4 FRESH CDT) which is offering up to 14 studentships to start in September 2020.
  ONE Planet - The effectiveness, science and transferability of large-scale natural drought management (NDM) in India. (OP20304)
  Dr P Quinn
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over the last 35 years, a team of traditional water engineers has successfully revived seven river basins, replenished 2.5 million wells, and provided thousands of people with reliable access to water in the Alwar region of Rajasthan.
  ONE Planet DTP - Will fish cope with climate change? A conjunctive use approach for regulating stream temperature to maximise natural habitat survival rate during heatwaves. (OP202020)
  Dr C Walsh
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Heatwaves are becoming more frequent in areas where they are least expected. Recently, a major heatwave in South East England resulted in the death of nearly 6000 fish.
  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.
  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.
