PhD projects

Updated 2 December 2016

Fully-funded studentships are available now, see the 4 adverts labelled with a British flag below.

We also have 17 projects for October 2017 entry, potentially funded (subject to selection of the strongest candidates) by the SCENARIO Doctoral Training Partnership. Deadline for application to those SCENARIO projects is 30 January 2017, with interviews of short-listed candidates on 8 February 2017.

We also advertise many projects for students with their own funding, see the adverts below labelled with a coin. Those projects are available for students who wish to apply to international postgraduate research scholarship competitions.

For each projects, please make sure to check the funding key carefully to find out whether you are eligible for funding.

Some of the fully-funded projects are confirmed or potential "CASE studentships" - CASE studentships are co-operative awards in which the student enhances their training by spending periods with the CASE partner (such as the Met Office) in a workplace outside the academic environment. The CASE partner provides modest extra funding to the students (minimum of £1000 per year) plus expenses that are incurred during visits. For projects with potential CASE awards, the final decision on which projects will become CASE will be made after candidates have been selected.
