PhD Studentships are available in a variety of research areas including sensor networks, glaciology and complexity science. These are subject to availability and qualifications. They offer an exciting opportunity to develop interdisciplinary skills while working on a worthwhile project. Suggested topics include:

  • sensor network system usability, self-maintenance and easier deployment and configuration for end-users
  • sensor networks which use web data as a resource for decision-making
  • performance optimisation of IP based sensor networks
  • camera-based sensor networks
  • Using sub-glacial probes to investigate sub-glacial processes
  • integration of complex multi-sensor data to understand glacial processes
  • measuring glacier response to climate change
