  Atmosphere blocking dynamics: Persistence, re-intensification and interaction with other weather systems
  Dr O Martinez-Alvarado, Dr R Schiemann, Dr K Hodges, Dr D Ackerley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atmospheric blocking occurs when persistent high-pressure systems (or anticyclones) remain quasi-stationary over a given location or region at mid- or high-latitudes.
  Clouds in Earth’s changing climate
  Dr T Dinh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Clouds are the largest source of uncertainty in climate models’ prediction of global climate change.
  Dynamics of Midlatitude and Tropical Convective Storms
  Prof D Schultz, Prof G Vaughan, Dr L Garcia-Carreras
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Convection is ubiquitous in the atmosphere. Although the ingredients of deep moist convection are well known (lift, instability, and moisture), how those ingredients come together to produce the observed panoply of convective storms worldwide remains an active area of research.
  Computational Fluid Dynamics Modelling of Tornadoes along Quasi-Linear Convective Systems
  Research Group: Atmospheric Science
  Prof D Schultz, Dr A Revell, Dr A Skillen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The UK experiences as many tornadoes as the USA as a whole. 1.2 vs 1.3 tornadoes per 10,000 km2 per year on average (Mulder and Schultz 2015).
  New models of Outer Radiation Belt Dynamics
  Dr C Watt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Department hosts a vibrant Space and Atmospheric Electricity group whose research interests span the remit of Space Weather from the Sun through the heliosphere to Earth.
  PhD in Equatorial waves and Tropical cyclons
  Dr K Hodges, Dr G-Y Yang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tropical Cyclones and equatorially-trapped waves are two major components of tropical weather systems. They are responsible for not only high impact weather events (such as extreme precipitation and high speed winds) in the tropics but also weather events in the extratropics through teleconnections.
  PhD in snow microphysics
  Dr C Westbrook
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The formation and evolution of ice particles (snowflakes) in clouds is an important problem in atmospheric physics. Ice particles in clouds influence the radiation budget of the earth.
  Asymmetries between feedbacks in warming and cooling climates – PhD (Funded)
  Dr H Lambert, Prof G Vallis
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Description. Complex numerical General Circulation Models (GCMs) are used to make projections of changes in 21st century climate.
  Scattering by Cirrus: from Microphysics to Climate Change
  Research Group: Atmospheric Science
  Prof A Webb, Dr P Connolly, Dr A Smedley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ice clouds, which can cover 20-35% of the Earth’s surface at any time, make a major contribution to radiative forcing in the atmosphere, both trapping IR (terrestrial) radiation and reflecting solar radiation.
  Understanding the formation and impacts of pockets of high ice crystal concentrations in mixed-phase layer clouds
  Research Group: Atmospheric Science
  Dr P Connolly, Dr D Topping
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project aims to understand how small-scale heterogeneity observed within clouds – so called “pockets of high ice crystal number density” – affect mixed-phase layer clouds (see Lloyd et al, 2015).
  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.
  How predictable are Arctic cyclones?
  Dr K Hodges
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The area of proposed research is the predictability of Arctic cyclones.
  Improved time-stepping schemes in weather and climate models
  Prof P Williams, Dr H Weller
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"The task of predicting weather and climate may be reduced to the following iterative procedure. First, given the state of the system at any time (the input), use the governing equations to compute the state at a slightly later time (the output).
  What are the impacts of future changes in Tropical Cyclone activity in the Arabian Sea
  Dr K Hodges, Dr R Schiemann, Dr AG Turner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Arabian Sea Tropical Cyclones (TCs) occur once or twice per year on average. Yet they have significant impacts, through their intense rainfall, strong winds and storm surges, on the coastal regions of Oman, Yemen, Somalia, Pakistan and western India.
