  Decarbonisation of the Food System
  Dr E Mohareb
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

As the world transitions to a low carbon economic system, dramatic changes will be required across the all sectors. The food system, which is currently estimated to be responsible for 20-30% of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, is one where particular urgency is required.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  Smart Data Analytics for Climate/Weather workflows
  Dr J Kunkel, Prof B Lawrence
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Efficient post-processing of climate and weather data is key for the data analysis. At the moment, scientists use toolkits from Python like Pangeo and command line tools like CDO.
  Mine site restoration and ecosystem development
  Prof M Tibbett
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will include various aspect of minesite rehabilitation including early development of terrestrial ecosystems and the nutritional constraints to ecosystem development (plants and soil biota) using a space-for-time substiution appraoch.
  The nature of mycorrhizal symbioses
  Prof M Tibbett
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will build on recent work highlighting the changing view of the nature of the relationship between plant and fungus in the (near) ubiquitous symbiosis.
  Understanding extinction risk in the Anthropocene
  Dr M Gonzalez-Suarez
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We live in a humanized world in which even the most remote areas have been affected by the actions of our species. Human impacts have caused a widespread loss of biodiversity, to the point that we have likely entered the sixth mass extinction event on Earth, the first primarily caused by humans.
  Ecology and behaviour of urban wildlife
  Dr P J Baker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The construction and development of urban areas is a relatively recent phenomenon. Urbanisation does, however, impose a range of advantages and disadvantages for biological organisms and which can bring them into conflict with humans.
