A funded PhD studentship is available at Newcastle University, with co-supervision (and additional CASE funding, training opportunities and computing facilities) from the Met Office, Exeter:


'Developing the next generation of coupled land surface-hydrological models'


Accurate prediction and warning of the impacts of severe weather, including flooding, drought, storm surges etc, requires an integrated approach to forecasting. Of particular concern is the need to better simulate UK scale river flow and inundation. This project will focus on this by addressing a significant gap in modelling capabilities between the meteorological and hydrological research communities. The aim is to develop a fully coupled atmosphere-land-ocean hydrological cycle modelling system, in order to provide more realistic simulations of river flows and therefore discharge into the ocean.


For further details about the project and how to apply please see: and

or contact Geoff Parkin,


Full funding is available to UK/EU students, with each award covering PhD tuition fees and living costs for a maximum of four years (these may be used to contribute towards costs for international students).


The application deadline is 22nd January 2016.


Best regards,
