PhD projects in the area of meteorology, climate and oceanography are available for an October 2018 start at University of East Anglia. 

Successful candidates who meet RCUK’s eligibility criteria will be awarded a NERC studentship - in 2017/18, the stipend is £14,553. In most cases, UK and EU nationals who have been resident in the UK for 3 years are eligible for a stipend. For non-UK EU-resident applicants NERC funding can be used to cover fees, RTSG and training costs, but not any part of the stipend.

Please follow the links below and contact the relevant supervisor.  Individual projects of interest include:

Weatherproofing for a smarter, resilient and more sustainable agri-sector (CASE studentship with National Institute for Agricultural Botany (NIAB) and British Society of Plant Breeders (BSPB))

Breaking internal tides in the tropical Indian Ocean

Extremes of water availability and water quality under climate change: sensitivity to rainfall resolution (CASE studentship with Anglian water)

Variability in Antarctic waters: searching for fingerprints of winter-time processes in the Southern Ocean
