  The global carbon cycle budget imbalance
  Dr A Rap, Dr D Spracklen
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will use state-of-the-art models to investigate the extent to which improved representation of biosphere-atmosphere processes reduces the global carbon cycle budget imbalance.
  Severe weather over Southeast Asia: fieldwork and modelling
  Dr C Birch, Dr J Marsham, Dr R Neely
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Maritime Continent in Southeast Asia is a key region in the global weather and climate system. Its complex island geography and position among the warmest oceans on Earth lead to a multi-scale concoction of severe atmospheric convective and dynamical weather systems.
  The formation of ice in clouds and the impact on climate
  Prof K Carslaw, Prof J Murray, Prof P Field
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The formation of ice in clouds is one of the least well understood aspects of the planet’s climate system. Special aerosol particles, known as ice-nucleating particles, are needed to trigger ice formation but their sources, characteristics and distribution around the globe are very poorly defined.
  How can forests help the UK move towards net-zero greenhouse gas emissions?
  Dr C Scott, Dr S Arnold, Prof P Forster
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In order to limit warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius above the pre-industrial period, global carbon dioxide emissions must reach net-zero by around the middle of the 21st century and become negative thereafter [1].
  Does mountain building control long-term climate?
  Dr B Mills, Prof A Haywood
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project addresses the famous uplift-weathering hypothesis. Raymo and Ruddiman (1992) proposed that the uplift of the Tibetan Plateau over the last 50 million years has been the principal driver of the substantial global cooling over this interval.
  Understanding how climate change affects the tropical rain belt over Africa and its variability
  Dr J Marsham, Dr A Maycock
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The tropics cover 40% of Earth’s area, include 36% of its land, and are home to 40% of its people. Africa is the continent with the largest tropical land mass, and its rapidly growing population includes many of the people who are most vulnerable to climate change.
  26 Fully Funded PhD Studentships in Environmental Research NERC

Funding Type

PhD Type

The NERC Panorama DTP has around 24 fully funded studentships for October 2019 starters to study the science of the Earth's atmosphere and climate, Earth processes and the living world.
