We are seeking applications for a PhD project based in the College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences at the University of Exeter, Exeter, UK. 

Project: Atmospheric Drivers of UK flood events: Current State and Future Changes

Main supervisor: Dr Jennifer Catto (University of Exeter)

Co-supervisor: Dr Marie Ekström (Cardiff University)

Co-supervisors: Dr Malcolm Roberts and Dr Ségolène Berthou (Met Office)

Co-supervisors: Dr Alison Kay and Dr Ali Rudd (Centre for Ecology & Hydrology)

The aim of this project will be to answer questions of both scientific and societal importance on the formation and occurrence of extreme rainfall and flooding events, and how the footprint of these events may change in a future climate. The project will involve the analysis of several datasets of atmospheric observations, flooding information, and climate model output, and will exploit new model simulations as part of the World Climate Research Program climate model database, specifically the high-resolution simulations produced by the Met Office.

The project would suit a candidate with a strong quantitative background, such as physics, mathematics, meteorology, oceanography or environmental science.

Application deadline: midnight on 29 April 2019
