The British Antarctic Survey, Cambridge, UK is seeking applications for
a PhD studenship on Future Antarctic ice sheet climate and mass balance
through its NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+
DTP), starting in autumn 2018.


Successful applicants will work with Dr Andrew Orr and use regional
modelling of the atmosphere to deliver projections of the future climate
of the Antarctic Ice Sheet, including associated changes in surface mass
balance and meltwater availability. The climate projections will be used
to force an ice-sheet model to explore the effects of climate change on
the Antarctic Ice Sheet evolution.


Further details of the project are available here:

residency and minimum qualifications. A useful summary of these is
