  26 Fully Funded PhD Studentships in Environmental Research NERC

Funding Type

PhD Type

The NERC Panorama DTP has around 24 fully funded studentships for October 2019 starters to study the science of the Earth's atmosphere and climate, Earth processes and the living world.
  Does mountain building control long-term climate?
  Dr B Mills, Prof A Haywood
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project addresses the famous uplift-weathering hypothesis. Raymo and Ruddiman (1992) proposed that the uplift of the Tibetan Plateau over the last 50 million years has been the principal driver of the substantial global cooling over this interval.
  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.
  Measuring and modelling greenhouse gas fluxes between agricultural soils and the atmosphere
  Prof P Chapman, Dr R Grayson, Dr M Galdos
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Soil is a major component in the global carbon cycle, containing about 1500 Pg (1 Pg 1 Gt 1015 g) of organic carbon, which is about three times the amount in vegetation and twice the amount in the atmosphere.
  Palaeo Constraints on the 1.5°C World: What does the Pliocene tell us about the long-terms effects of atmospheric CO2 at ~400 ppmv
  Prof A Haywood, Dr D Hill
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The issue. Our ability to limit the rise in global temperature in line with the Paris Agreement is uncertain due to an inadequate understanding of the long-term sensitivity of the Earth and Climate System to CO2.
  Severe weather over Southeast Asia: fieldwork and modelling
  Dr C Birch, Dr J Marsham, Dr R Neely
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Maritime Continent in Southeast Asia is a key region in the global weather and climate system. Its complex island geography and position among the warmest oceans on Earth lead to a multi-scale concoction of severe atmospheric convective and dynamical weather systems.
  The formation of ice in clouds and the impact on climate
  Prof K Carslaw, Prof B Murray, Prof P Field
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The formation of ice in clouds is one of the least well understood aspects of the planet’s climate system. Special aerosol particles, known as ice-nucleating particles, are needed to trigger ice formation but their sources, characteristics and distribution around the globe are very poorly defined.
  Understanding how climate change affects the tropical rain belt over Africa and its variability
  Dr J Marsham, Dr A Maycock
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The tropics cover 40% of Earth’s area, include 36% of its land, and are home to 40% of its people. Africa is the continent with the largest tropical land mass, and its rapidly growing population includes many of the people who are most vulnerable to climate change.

  Measuring, modelling and predicting the hole in the Earth’s magnetic field
  Dr P Livermore
Application Deadline: 19 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The geomagnetic field is a fundamental component of Earth. Wrapping around our planet like an invisible force-field, it protects life from harmful solar radiation and influences the impacts of space weather on modern technologies, such as satellites and electrical power grids.
  Assessing the millennial and centennial variability of the West African Monsoon during the late Quaternary: palaeodata and modelling approach
  Dr F Marret-Davies, Prof A Morse
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of the project is to qualitatively and quantitatively reconstruct the late Quaternary variability of the monsoon system off West Africa to better understand causes and consequences in periods of warmer than today conditions.
  The imprint of the Atlantic jet stream and storm track on ocean overturning in the North Atlantic
  Prof R Williams, Prof T Woollings, Dr D Smith
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to identify how the atmospheric jet stream affects the meridional overturning in the North Atlantic by diagnosing coupled atmosphere-ocean models.
  SCENARIO - Atmosphere blocking dynamics: Persistence, re-intensification and interaction with other weather systems
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr O Martinez-Alvarado, Dr R Schiemann, Dr K Hodges
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

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.
  SCENARIO - Causal discovery algorithms for the study of climate change impacts on the global water cycle
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr M.I. Hegglin, Dr V Ojha
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The water cycle plays a critical role in shaping the global environment and supporting life on Earth. Climate change is predicted to lead to changes in the water cycle, affect available water resources, and as a consequence endanger the livelihoods of societies especially in the developing world.
  SCENARIO - Coupled carbon, water and heat fluxes over the global land surface
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Prof K Haines, Dr TL Quaife
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

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.
