  SCENARIO :Data synthesis and integration for improved climate impact assessment, modelling and policy
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr R Cornforth, Dr E Tarnavsky
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Climate change is already demonstrated in changes in the frequency and severity of extreme weather events.
  The distributional effects of the low carbon transition
  Prof J Barrett
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The UK is committed to reduce its Greenhouse Gas Emissions by 80% in 2050 based on 1990 levels. This target could also be tightened to net zero emissions by 2050 to align the UK’s commitment with international climate goals.
  One 3-year PhD studentship on “Energy Demand in the Digital Society” at SPRU, University of Sussex.
  Prof T Foxon, Prof S Sorrell
Application Deadline: 12 April 2019
The PhD will be based in the Science Policy Research Unit (SPRU) at the University of Sussex. Established in 1966, SPRU conducts research, consultancy and postgraduate teaching in the area of science, technology, and innovation policy.
  SCENARIO: A new approach to navigating uncertainty in climate-related hydrologic risk
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Prof T Shepherd, Dr K.A. Smith, Prof N Arnell, Dr G Darch
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Climate change poses a severe threat to the environment, and it is essential to be able to evaluate climate-related risk and provide appropriate guidance to decision-makers.
  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).
  Designing Electric vehicle Commuter travel ENvironments for fuTure LifestYles (DECENTLY)
  Dr D Dissanayake
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project is part of the ONE Planet DTP. Find out more here. https://research.ncl.ac.uk/one-planet/. As a means to mitigate impending climate change and air quality issues associated to transportation emissions, the UK is set a target for 60% of new cars to be electric vehicles (EVs) by 2030.
  Reducing GHGs from the heat system - Implementation of buried infrastructure as a heat source
  Dr C Bale
Application Deadline: 8 February 2019
The UK Government has a commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80% by 2050. While the last five years has seen a 50% reduction in carbon density of the electricity grid, the target is unlikely to be met without also tackling the gas network.
  Time travelling as a powerful approach for the screening of biodiversity
  Dr L Orsini, Dr S He, Prof J B Brown
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Eutrophication and climate change are two of the most pressing environmental issues, affecting up to 50% of aquatic ecosystems worldwide.
  SCENARIO: Climate change impacts on UK apple production and quality
  Prof R Ellis, Prof P Hadley, Dr M Ordidge, Mr T Biddlecombe
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Future food and nutritional security requires sustainable food production systems in future, different climates. Perennial crops such as top fruit (apples, pears, plums, cherries, etc) are more sustainable than annual crops.
  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.
