  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Mathematics of Planet Earth
We are seeking excellent candidates for 16 fully funded PhD positions, as part of the forth cohort of the newly established EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in the Mathematics of Planet Earth (MPE), jointly run by Imperial College London and the University of Reading.
  SCENARIO: How do trees affect the hydrological cycle?
  Dr E Blyth, Prof A Verhoef, Dr E Robinson, Dr T Nisbet
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
One of the least constrained components of the hydrological cycle is the amount of rainfall that is captured by the vegetation and recycled back to the atmosphere – the Interception.
  SCENARIO - Improving river flood forecasts using machine learning and water observations from river camera images
  Dr V Ojha, Dr S L Dance
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
We aim to draw water information of from river cameras for river flood forecasting using machine learning algorithms. This project involves processing of a large volume of data (river camera images) and analogue measurements on river observation.
  Towards Conversational Recommender Systems In the Era of Big Data
  Dr H Liang
Applications accepted all year round
To be able to cope with complex, huge, diverse, and dynamic data, people need the assistance of intelligent information systems such as recommender systems for finding, sorting, and filtering the available information.
  Structure-function relationships governing polyphenol bioactivity with respect to plasma membranes
  Prof R A Frazier, Dr R Green
Applications accepted all year round
This project aims to investigate polyphenol binding to lipid membrane surfaces with a view to understanding how polyphenol structure and aggregation within the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) affects the bioavailability of these nutraceuticals.
  Improved time-stepping schemes in weather and climate models
  Prof P Williams, Dr H Weller
Applications accepted all year round
"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).
  SCENARIO :Data synthesis and integration for improved climate impact assessment, modelling and policy
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr R Cornforth, Dr E Tarnavsky
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Climate change is already demonstrated in changes in the frequency and severity of extreme weather events.
  SCENARIO: Analysis of peatland carbon dynamics using combined optical and microwave satellite data
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Prof K Morrison, Dr TL Quaife
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Peatlands are a key component of the terrestrial carbon cycle and sequester large amounts of carbon from the atmosphere. Monitoring their health and state is therefore key to understanding carbon dynamics and the important role peatlands play in the climate, and in climate change.
  SCENARIO: Bias correction in Data Assimilation
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr A Fowler, Dr A S Lawless
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Data assimilation, the process of initializing a computer model forecast using the latest observational data, has proven fundamental to the accuracy of modern day weather forecasting.
  SCENARIO: Climate Response to Short-lived Pollutants (CReSP)
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Prof W Collins, Prof K Shine, Dr N Bellouin
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
This project is to investigate the impacts of air pollutants on climate. As well as causing health problems, air pollutants such as ozone, soot and sulphuric acid also affect climate by changing the Earth’s radiation balance.
