  Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation in the NHS England: The impact of policies on strategies and processes
  Dr P Mothan-Hill
Applications accepted all year round
The aim of this PhD project is to map and evaluate the different policies, strategies and processes of the NHS England with regards to climate change adaptation and mitigation and to measure and suggest improvements on how the health sector contributes to two of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
  Tracking adaptation to climate change using big data
  Prof J Ford, Prof J Minx
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Adaptation has become a core element of climate change policy and research, and figures prominently in the UN Paris Agreement (Lesnikowski et al., 2017; Magnan and Ribera, 2016).
  Documenting and evaluating adaptation to climate change in the south of England
  Prof EL Tompkins
Application Deadline: 12 January 2019
What is the spectrum, distribution and prevalence of human adaptations to flood events and heatwaves? Which strategies to adapt to any environmental shock or stress are most common and which most rare? The short answer is – we don’t know.
  River temperature under change: understanding potential of riparian forest and landscape properties for climate adaptation
  Prof D M Hannah, Prof S Krause
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Background. It is expected that climate change will impact UK river ecosystems (Hannah & Garner, 2015) as a consequence of extreme low-flows and high river water temperature events (Garner et al., 2017a).
  NERC Panorama Doctoral Training Partnership - Adaptation strategies to pluvial urban flood risk under UKCP18 climate change scenarios
  Dr M Trigg
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The frequency and impact of heavy rainfall associated with summer convective storms and winter frontal storms is projected to increase with future climate change.
  Understanding temperature adaptation in tropical Andean butterflies
  Dr N Nadeau, Prof J Hill
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
We are seeking an enthusiastic student with interests in ecology, evolution and genetics to work on a project investigating thermal adaptation in tropical Andean butterflies.
  Climate change impacts on cold-adapted butterflies: discovering the mechanisms and testing potential mitigation approaches
  Dr R Menendez
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Cold-adapted species, including those restricted to mountains, are highly vulnerable to climate change. For UK butterflies, cold-adapted species are similarly threatened by climate change mediated decline, with some species demonstrating range retractions concurrent with recent warming.
  Mitigation, adaptation, built asset management and climate change
  Prof K Jones, Dr A Coday
Applications accepted all year round
Research Group. Built Environment Research Group. https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-technology/research/our-research-institutes-and-groups/built-environment-research-group.
  SCENARIO: Pan-African Heatwave Health Hazard Forecasting
  Dr H Cloke, Dr C Di Napoli
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Heatwaves are a serious meteorological hazard to human health and place significant strains on infrastructure (power, water and transport), agricultural production, retail, tourism and ecosystem services.
  Climate change and the development of built asset adaptation strategies
  Prof K Jones, Prof A Jones
Applications accepted all year round
Research Group. Built Environment Research Group, Global Sustainability Institute. https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-technology/research/our-research-institutes-and-groups/built-environment-research-group.
