  Fast, reliable and secure wireless IoT chaos-based communication
  Dr M S Baptista
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project tackles scientific issues aimed at creating and laying the mathematical foundations of an innovative Wireless IoT Communication System…
  Improving Evaluation Strategies for Species Distribution Modelling
  Dr C T Marshall, Dr L Lancaster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate warming is have a variety of impacts on marine species (Poloczanska et al 2013) including broad scale changes in their spatial distribution such as poleward range shifts (Last et al 2011).
  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.
  Doctor of Engineering (EngD): Optical Fibre Sensing for Offshore Renewable Energy (Fraunhofer)
  Dr W N MacPherson, Dr Brian Sellar
Application Deadline: 30 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project not available to non UK/EU applicants. Project Description. Distributed optical fibre sensing is a topic of great industrial relevance.
  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).
  Towards a theory for the surface layer of the ocean: clarifying the contribution of non-breaking waves to the observed differences between the oceanic surface layer and its atmospheric counterpart
  Dr MA Teixeira, Dr A Grant
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project we intend to clarify the contribution of non-breaking waves to the observed differences between the oceanic surface layer and its atmospheric counterpart, and to formulate a systematic description of its scaling properties regarding, for example, heat and momentum fluxes, as achieved for the atmosphere by Monin-Obukhov theory.
  PhD opportunities in the Department of Geography- in the top 50 worldwide

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University is rated in the top 100 by the QS World University Rankings, priding itself on research-led critical thinking that aims to make an impact in the world.
  Global warming, plankton functional diversity, and the biological ocean pump
  Dr B Chen, Dr N Banas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We all know that global warming is a serious issue for the future of humankind and is intimately related with anthropogenic CO2 emissions.
  Mathematical ecology of ocean food webs
  Prof M Heath
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Marine sonar records have long documented the existence of a layer of acoustic scattering at around 400m depth throughout the world’s oceans, which can undertake diel (night-time) vertical migrations to the near-surface waters.
  Protecting our seas using computers - Modelling and forecasting the expansion of a highly invasive seaweed
  Dr B Chen, Prof M Heath
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This fully-funded 3.5 year studentship will remain open only until filled. We recommend applying immediately. In this project, you will meet with the challenge of developing an individual based model to simulate the growth and dispersal of a highly invasive seaweed (Japanese eelgrass) driven by coastal ocean currents.
  Unlocking the Power of Data in the Shipping Industry
  Dr A Coraddu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

For the Shipping Industry, the Information Age means the availability of ever-growing amount of data coming from multiple sensors present on-board.
  Remote sensing of zooplankton and other large marine particles
  Dr D McKee
Application Deadline: 12 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The optical properties of the ocean are traditionally described as being determined by water, phytoplankton, sediments and coloured dissolved organic material.
