PhD Studentships

We have a wide range of PhD students studying within the IRDR. When new projects become available the project details will be posted here.

Current available PhD Studentships:

The UCL Institute for Risk and Disaster Reduction invites applications for a fully funded 3-year UCL Impact Studentship with NTNU (Norwegian University of Science and Technology). This project focuses on the development of a thermal consolidation and failure model for rafted and ridged sea ice. The model study will be guided by laboratory experiments of consolidation and strength of sea ice in the UCL cold room and will be validated against field measurements. The UCL student will work cooperatively with students at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim and the University Centre in Svalbard (UNIS). For more information, see the full advert here.
