  Doctor of Philosophy (PhD): Photonic Sensors for Measuring Green House Gas Emissions in Dairy and Arable Production: Sustainable Precision Agriculture (University of Strathclyde and SRUC Barony Campus)
  Prof D Reid, Prof C Michie
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The global population is predicted to reach 9 Billion by 2050. As a consequence, increasing competition for land resource against a backdrop of climate change agricultural practices are presenting farmers with a range of challenges to improve operational efficiency and reduce greenhouse emissions.
  Fully funded PhD Studentship: Computational / data science techniques to improve and integrate weather forecasting in business decision-making
  Prof M D Piggott
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a four year full-time PhD studentship to work on a research project jointly with Imperial College London (the departments of Earth Science & Engineering, Physics and Mathematics and Shell (the Data Science Centre for Excellence).
  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.
  ONE Planet DTP - Developing probabilistic precipitation datasets for high mountain regions in a changing climate (OP20298)
  Dr E Lewis
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Precipitation data is fundamental to understanding hydrological processes, yet precipitation patterns and variability in mountain regions are poorly understood.
  ONE Planet DTP - Impact of Arctic tundra snowpack insulation on soil temperatures and carbon fluxes (Ref: OP202013)
  Dr N Rutter
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In Arctic tundra, snowpacks play a critical role in mediating energy exchanges and carbon fluxes between the land surface and the atmosphere.
  Computational Fluid Dynamics Modelling of Tornadoes along Quasi-Linear Convective Systems
  Research Group: Atmospheric Science
  Prof D Schultz
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).
  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).
  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.
  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 is now recruiting to our 4-year PhD programme for 2020 entry.
  Environmental data science: a new machine learning approach to study the influence of climate change on extreme weather (NOWACKPU20SCIEC)
  Dr P Nowack, Prof M Joshi
Application Deadline: 30 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is one of the most pressing societal and scientific challenges. Improving our understanding of climate change, in particular concerning its impacts on the country- or even city-scale, is therefore a global research priority.
  Tropical weather systems and their global impacts: How will they evolve with climate change? (MATTHEWSAU20SCIO)
  Prof A J Matthews, Prof D Stevens
Application Deadline: 30 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The eastern Indian and western Pacific Oceans form the “tropical warm pool”, the largest area of warm ocean on the planet. The warm pool provides the heat and moisture for the most intense atmospheric convection (thousands of cumulonimbus clouds) on Earth.
  A Lagrangian view of the evolution of convective updrafts, Mathematics – PhD (Funded)
  Prof J Thuburn, Dr B Beare
Application Deadline: 2 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Exeter’s College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences is inviting applications for a fully-funded PhD studentship to commence in September 2020 or as soon as possible thereafter.
  Co-benefits of a Low Carbon Economy: Improved Air Quality and Reduced Global Warming
  Dr JB McQuaid, Prof D Marsh
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

According to the World Health Organization, it is estimated that air pollution kills approximately 7 million people worldwide, and 90% of the population breath air with high levels of pollutants.
  Ice and Light: Improving our ability to measure the environment with computational electromagnetic modellingSupervisor
  Dr R Neely, Dr PD Rosenberg
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A fundamental understanding of how ice crystals scatter light is critical for understanding the natural world. As this understanding is based on computational electromagnetic modelling, it is rooted in physical and mathematical sciences.
