  Doctor of Engineering (EngD): Optical Fibre Sensing for Offshore Renewable Energy (Fraunhofer)
  Dr W N MacPherson, Dr Brian Sellar
Application Deadline: 30 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project not available to non UK/EU applicants. Project Description. Distributed optical fibre sensing is a topic of great industrial relevance.
  Quantum-Enhanced Imaging in Extreme Environments
  Prof G Buller
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Single-Photon and photon-pair correlated imaging has opened up a number of exciting possibilities for three-dimensional imaging in extreme environments such as imaging through obscurants (eg fog, smoke), and underwater.
  Climate change influences on landsliding in the British Isles
  Dr M Ibsen, Dr A P Dykes, Dr S Downward
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change predictions for the British Isles generally indicate that there will be higher winter rainfall in future, but with more frequent high intensity rainfall events at any time of year.
  Microscintillator radioactivity detector
  Dr K Aplin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project offers an exciting opportunity to work at the interface between physics and engineering, and gain experience in industry.
  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Aerosol Science

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Centre for Doctoral training in Aerosol Science (CAS) is now recruiting to our 4-year PhD programme for 2019 entry.
  The impact of climate change and variability on ocean oxygen (LEQUÉRÉQU19RSUEA)
  Prof C Le Quere, Dr A Manning
Application Deadline: 20 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change affects the ocean in profound and multiple ways. It warms the ocean, alters the physical circulation, and impacts on marine ecosystems.
  Autonomous Systems for Offshore Wind O&M – Strategies, Guidelines, and Tools; Engineering – PhD (Funded)
  Dr A Pillai, Dr L Johanning
Application Deadline: 22 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD at the University of Exeter is sponsored by EDF Energy which is at the forefront of the drive towards low carbon electricity generation.
  PhD in Chemistry: Tracking the source and history of methane using novel isotope systems
  Prof F Stuart, Dr M Clog
Application Deadline: 1 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite the obvious importance of methane (CH4, natural gas), and decades of study, we still have little understanding of how and when it forms in sedimentary source rocks, what drives it into reservoir rocks, and what happens along the way to make the deposits economic or not.
  Coupled carbon, water and heat fluxes over the global land surface
  Prof K Haines, Dr TL Quaife, Dr D Hemming
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Simulating changes to the Earth’s energy, water and carbon cycles is a key goal of climate and earth system models.
  Data synthesis and integration for improved climate impact assessment, modelling and policy
  Dr R Cornforth, Dr E Tarnavsky
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is already demonstrated in changes in the frequency and severity of extreme weather events.
  Electric dust storms: environmental challenges and impacts
  Prof G Harrison, Dr C Ryder, Dr K.A. Nicoll
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mineral dust aerosol is a major component of the Earth-Atmosphere system, comprising 70% of the global aerosol mass burden.
  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.
  Flow processes and turbulent exchange in urban canopies
  Dr J Barlow, Dr O Coceal
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most of the world’s population now experiences an urban version of weather extremes and climate change. Accurate forecasting of weather and air quality in cities relies on correctly representing the physics of turbulent exchange between the surface and the overlying atmosphere.
  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).
  Improving our understanding of ice cloud microphysics using new aircraft and multi-wavelength radar measurements
  Dr C Westbrook, Dr T Stein, Dr S Mason
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ice particles in clouds play an important role for both weather and climate prediction. Half of all precipitation globally is initiated through the formation of ice, while the radiative impact of ice clouds is very important because of their widespread coverage.
  Towards a theory for the surface layer of the ocean: clarifying the contribution of non-breaking waves to the observed differences between the oceanic surface layer and its atmospheric counterpart
  Dr MA Teixeira, Dr A Grant
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project we intend to clarify the contribution of non-breaking waves to the observed differences between the oceanic surface layer and its atmospheric counterpart, and to formulate a systematic description of its scaling properties regarding, for example, heat and momentum fluxes, as achieved for the atmosphere by Monin-Obukhov theory.
  Trapped lee waves as a source of low-level drag on the atmosphere
  Dr MA Teixeira, Dr SL Gray
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atmospheric models used for numerical weather prediction and climate modelling have large uncertainties in their representation of small-scale processes that contribute to uncertainties in the large-scale movement of air termed the atmospheric circulation.
  Controls on tidewater glacier retreat in Alaska
  Prof T Barrows
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sea level rose by 0.19 m over the last century (1901-2010) and glaciers accounted for 90% of sea level rise from melting of the cryosphere from 1971-2010.
