The Lancaster Environment Centre at Lancaster University is advertising
NERC PhD studentships to start in October 2012. The list of projects on
offer is available at:

http://www.lec.lancs.ac.uk/postgraduate/pgresearch/research-degree-
opportunities.php

The studentships are competition-funded and open to UK and European students;
the application deadline is Sunday 26th February, and interviews will be
held in mid-March.

There are a number of projects related to atmospheric and climate processes,
and I would draw your attention to one project on the dispersal of volcanic
pollutants in the atmosphere which draws on Lancaster's strengths in
atmospheric science and in volcanology:

opportunities.php?phd_id=76

This project will focus on aggregation, mixing and deposition processes
in volcanic eruption clouds, and will involve development and application
of the WRF/Chem model. The aim is to improve our understanding of the
evolution of volcanic plumes and to build on and complement other volcano-
related atmospheric studies currently underway in the UK and the US.
The project will be supervised by Dr Jennie Gilbert and Dr Oliver Wild.

For further details, please see the link above, and/or address enquiries
by email to Andy Harrod at lec.pg@lancaster.ac.uk.
