  Exploitation and production from Methane Hydrate reservoirs (Arctic and Subsea porous media)
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr J Derksen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Naturally occurring gas (mostly methane) hydrates along the continental margins (coastal offshore) and permafrost sediments are the clean source of energy outnumbering the rest forms of conventional energy sources.
  Stratified shear flows in inclined pipes
  Dr Y Tanino, Dr D Van der A
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stably stratified shear flows are ubiquitous in the environment and industrial systems. In the atmosphere such flows are associated with clear air turbulence.
  Mate choice, and mate choice copying in cuttlefish
  Research Group: Behavioural Ecology Research Group (BEEC)
  Dr G Cooke, Dr S Mowles
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. Behavioural Ecology Research Group (BEEC) - https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-engineering/research/institutes-and-groups/behavioural-ecology.
  Antimicrobial resistance in marine mammals
  Dr G Troisi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project addresses an urgent Global Challenge – the growing widespread incidence of anti-microbial resistance (AMR). It will be the first to investigate an unreported alarming concern, that wild seals are dying off from AMR bacterial infections and mortality is greater in more polluted waters.
  Fully funded PhD Studentship: Computational / data science techniques to improve and integrate weather forecasting in business decision-making

  What are the drivers and impacts of ocean and climate variability for Caribbean Islands? (STEVENSDU20SF)
  Prof D Stevens
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Caribbean Small Island Developing States face a variety of impacts from climate variability and climate change.
  How predictable are Arctic cyclones?
  Dr K Hodges
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The area of proposed research is the predictability of Arctic cyclones.
  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).
  PhD project in oceanic heat uptake and transport
  Dr T Kuhlbrodt, Dr H Hewitt, Dr R Tailleux
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ocean heat uptake is a key process in the current heating of the Earth System. 92% of the heat added to the Earth system is stored in the world ocean.
  What are the impacts of future changes in Tropical Cyclone activity in the Arabian Sea
  Dr K Hodges, Dr R Schiemann, Dr AG Turner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Arabian Sea Tropical Cyclones (TCs) occur once or twice per year on average. Yet they have significant impacts, through their intense rainfall, strong winds and storm surges, on the coastal regions of Oman, Yemen, Somalia, Pakistan and western India.
