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 2019.

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: <>

Applicants should apply directly to the lead supervisor of the project (deadline 7 January 2019). Please send your CV, a cover letter no more than 2 sides A4 detailing your reasons for applying and why you have chosen the project, contact details of 2 professional references (these cannot be from the project supervising team), a copy of degree certicates, and transcripts.

Note that the studentship does have elligibility requirements, including residency and minimum qualifications.
