[Met-jobs] Phd at Bristol: evolution of Earth’s ice sheets from 300 million years ago to the future
The School of Geographical Sciences at the University of Bristol, UK
currently has available the following fully funded NERC studentship
(with additional CASE contribution of £1000 per year), starting
October 2017 (flexible):
"The evolution of Earth’s ice sheets from 300 million years ago to the future: implications for climate and life"
You will make use of recent advances in ice sheet and climate models to explore the evolution of Earth’s ice sheets from 300
million years ago to the future. In
particular, you will explore the relative roles that changes in atmospheric carbon dioxide and
paleogeography play in controlling ice sheet evolution, and the associated
mechanisms of inception, growth, and decay of ice.
The successful student will be fully integrated into the NERC GW4+ DTP.
This project comes with augmented research costs consisting of anadditional £1000 per year provided by the project CASE partner.For details of how to apply (deadline 6th January 2017), and eligibility, see here:http://nercgw4plus.ac.uk/phd-projects/2017-projects/
