  Space-based solutions to air pollution in the UK
  Dr E Marais, Prof P Monks
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Air pollution is the largest global threat to health (Lancet, 2017). In the UK, about 40,000 people die prematurely each year due to exposure to air pollution (RCP, 2016) and UK health care costs due to air pollution may be as high as £160 million per year (PHE, 2018).
  Street-scale modelling of air quality in Beijing: Explaining spatial variability and assessing human exposure
  Dr O Wild
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Air pollution is a major problem in many parts of the world, and is particularly acute in countries with rapidly developing economies such as China.
  Investigating local and regional air pollution from shipping
  Dr J D Lee, Dr S Moller, Dr J Hopkins
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Shipping is a growing sector but one of the least regulated sources of emissions of atmospheric pollutants. It is also an important source of gaseous and particulate air pollution in coastal regions, causing up to 400,000 premature deaths per year globally.
  Improved driving-scenario-based inventories for real world tailpipe emissions from contemporary vehicles
  Dr J Vande Hey, Dr A Spencer
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Air pollution is a major problem globally, with ambient (outdoor) air pollution estimated by the World Health Organisation to cause 4.2 million premature deaths per year.
  Wood burning in the West Midlands: impact on air quality and health
  Dr Z Shi, Prof R Harrison, Dr X Cai
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
World Health Organization (WHO) estimated that air pollution is associated with 7 million premature deaths per year globally. In the UK, air pollution causes 40,000 premature deaths (Royal College of Physicians, 2016) and costs the economy £20 bn per year.
  How will air pollution and climate change combine to affect future food supply?
  Dr L Emberson
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
The record high temperatures and extended droughts experienced across much of the northern hemisphere during the summer of 2018 serve as a stark reminder of the severe impacts climate change will cause arable agriculture.
  Multivariate Peaks-Over-Threshold (POT) Modelling of Non-stationary Air Pollution Concentration Data
  Dr L V Bogachev
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Peaks-over-threshold (POT) method is the preferred modern approach to analyse extreme values in a time series. This is due to a better usage of information as compared to the classic block-maxima method (which utilises only one maximum value in each block, e.g.
  Air quality box modelling for an urban street network
  Dr X Cai, Dr W J Bloss
Applications accepted all year round
Air pollution associated with the road traffic is the major environmental issue in urban areas. Buildings in urban areas are the artificial obstacles to the urban atmospheric flow and cause the insufficient ventilation.
  BBSRC CASE PhD Studentship in Cellular Medicine - Investigation into the biochemical and biological effects of air pollution on the function of human skin and the intervention of such effects
  Prof M Birch-Machin
Applications accepted all year round
Number of awards. 1. Start date and duration. 1 October 2018 for 4 years. Application closing date. Prompt application is advised as this post is only available until suitable candidates are appointed.
  Beyond NOx - future air pollution impacts of road vehicles
  Dr D Carslaw, Dr M S Shaw
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This project aims to establish much needed information on the real-world emissions from road vehicles on a wide range of important atmospheric pollutants.
