ReCoVER Funding Call Open (Back to Top)

Early Career Researcher Funding Call Open

ReCoVER funding is available for projects led by Early Career Researchers. The projects can be for up to £5k for up to 3 months duration. This is open only to project leaders who are PhD students or post-doctoral researchers. Funds can be used for travel and subsistence, consumables and contributions to salary costs if this is permissible under EPSRC rules.

Projects could include exploratory projects e.g. collaborative visits that focus on a new direction, a workshop or a secondment from a research project to work with end-users.

The deadline for this funding call is Sunday 27th November 2016.


PhD studentship at the University of East Anglia (Back to Top)

Weather extremes under a changing climate: making better projections of future climate

We are inviting applications for a PhD studentship at the Climatic Research Unit (CRU), School of Environmental Sciences, University of East Anglia with CASE partner Atkins.

Candidates should have a degree in a relevant subject area such as Environmental Sciences, Physics, Maths, Statistics or Geography, and to be numerate and a clear communicator.

Supervisors: Professor Tim Osborn (UEA), Dr Geoff Darch (Atkins), Dr Steve Dorling (UEA)

Deadline: Sunday 8th January 2017


Workshop: The influence of weather and climate variability on water resources management (Back to Top)

When: 23rd January (pm) and 24th January (am) 2017
Where: Exeter

This is a joint workshop organised by the EPSRC networks ReCoVER (Research in Change of Variability and Environmental Risk; and BRIM (Building Resilience into Risk Management; The organisers are Peter Ashwin (Exeter) and Guangtao Fu (Exeter).

The aim of the workshop is to explore how weather/climate variability will shape water resources management in the long term and identify themes for research that could help develop management strategies to better cope with the variability in means and extremes. For example, we will explore some of the challenges that arise from:
• Understanding weather/climate variability and climatic risk on water resources management.
• Relations between weather variability and fluctuations in water supply capacity and water demand.
• Longer-term challenges of climate change on meeting water demand.
• Developing and using climate forecasts for water infrastructure planning and management.
• Developing resilient water supply to weather/climate variability.

We plan to have a number of presentations from researchers that will raise particular research problems, and follow this by a workshop-style meeting where participants will be encouraged to engage across disciplinary boundaries.

We plan for the meeting to include approximately 20 participants. This will be a mixture of water engineers, climate scientists, computer scientists, mathematicians and statisticians, including participants associated with the EPSRC- networks CliMathNet, ReCoVER, and BRIM, but participants from outside of these networks are very welcome.

Costs: We are able to offer funding for the meeting, meals and overnight stay for up to 20 people as well as reasonable UK travel costs for speakers.

Funding: The networks ReCoVER and BRIM will offer participants the opportunity to apply for feasibility funding to follow up ideas from the workshop.
