  Community-based approaches for the implementation of Nature-based solutions against coastal erosion
  Dr A Ollauri, Dr K Munro, Dr S B Mickovski
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCEBE-19-024. Coastal erosion is a natural hazard which frequency and intensity will likely increase as a result of sea-level rise and storm surges due to climate change.
  Numerical modelling of sediment transportation and surface roughness on vegetated coastal dune systems
  Assoc Prof S Wakes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coasts and coastal communities around the world are vulnerable to sea level increases and intensity of storm events. Vegetated sand dunes are relied upon for protection, buffering coastal communities from the sea.
  PhD Degrees in the Department of Architecture & Civil Engineering

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our interdisciplinary approach to research, encompassing the fields of Architectural History and Theory, Architectural and Structural Conservation, Lightweight Structures, Hydraulics and Earthquake Engineering and Dynamics.
  Near Real-Time Multiscale Hybrid Surface Water Flooding Risk Forecasting. PhD in Engineering (NERC GW4 + DTP)
  Dr A Chen
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Albert Chen, Department of Engineering, Centre for Water Systems, College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, University of Exeter.
  Flood mitigation schemes in rural communities in the south west of England
  Dr K Clarke, Dr A P Dykes, Dr M Ibsen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There have been several severe flood events in southwest England in recent years, including Boscastle in 2004, Dawlish in 2014 and Coverack in 2014 and July 2017.
  Exploitation and production from Methane Hydrate reservoirs (Arctic and Subsea porous media)
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr J Derksen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Naturally occurring gas (mostly methane) hydrates along the continental margins (coastal offshore) and permafrost sediments are the clean source of energy outnumbering the rest forms of conventional energy sources.
  Tracking granular flows using instrumented grains
  Dr S Papanicolopulos
Application Deadline: 21 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Granular materials are ubiquitous in nature (e.g. sand and other soils) and in industry (e.g. corn, sugar, detergents, pharmaceutical tablets, pellets).
  SALine INtrusion in coastal Aquifers (SALINA): Hydrodynamic Assessment and Prediction of Dynamic Response
  Dr G A Hamill
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Currently 53% of people live on the 10% of the earth’s surface that is within 200km of the coast. Meeting the needs of coastal communities forms one of the major challenges facing society in the 21st Century and in particular an engineering solution is needed to the provide sustainable fresh water supplies.
  Utilising novel satellite observations in the monitoring and management of marine Ecosystems.PhD in Renewable Energy (NERC GW4 + DTP)
  Dr H C M Smith
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Helen Smith, Department of Engineering, College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, University of Exeter.
  Fluid flows above and within porous materials
  Prof D Pokrajac, Dr D Van der A
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fluid mechanics problems often involve fluid flows over porous materials. Examples of practical applications include flow through atmospheric and aquatic vegetation, coastal structures, and movement of biological fluids through various tissues.
