  Engineering: College of Engineering Centenary Scholarship: Simulation of coastal erosion under storm surge conditions
  Dr M Luo
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Subject areas. Civil Engineering, Coastal Engineering. Start date. October 2019. Project description. Large waves and rapid flows can cause serious coastal erosion/scouring, being a great hazard to the coastal communities.
  Coastal geohazard analyses and decision making tools for asset management (Ref: OP19_27)
  Dr M Lim
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Significant investment (~£50m in the UK) is made into mitigating the risks posed by coastal geohazards to buildings, infrastructure, utilities and ecosystems.
  Will salt marsh survive sea level rise? An integrated numerical model and field investigation
  Dr N Leonardi, Dr R Smedley
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Salt marshes are delicate ecosystems located at the boundary between sea and land and play a number of crucially important socio-economic roles.
  RISK CDT - Vulnerability of coastal infrastructures under climate change
  Dr E Patelli, Dr N Leonardi
Applications accepted all year round
Applications will close as soon as a suitable candidate has been found. The successful candidate is expected to start by February 2019.
  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
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.
  Low-Carbon Energy Recovery from Methane Hydrate Reservoirs
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr W Afzal
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Monitoring and modelling the drivers and responses of permafrost coastal erosion (Ref: OP19_26)
  Dr M Lim
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Climatic changes in temperature have been particularly pronounced across Arctic coastlines, reducing the sea-ice season and intensifying storm activity.
  Tracking granular flows using instrumented grains
  Dr S Papanicolopulos
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019
Granular materials are ubiquitous in nature (e.g. sand and other soils) and in industry (e.g. corn, sugar, detergents, pharmaceutical tablets, pellets).
  Development of sustainable and durable composite concrete for coastal defence structures for the marine environment
  Dr M Sonebi, Dr S A Bowden
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
"Both in-situ and precast concrete are used in a wide range of applications along the coast. In ports and harbours, concrete often forms the main structural body of quays, used in caissons, blockwork or diaphragm wall-structures.
  Analysis-on-a-roll platforms for automated and high frequency remote sensing of natural geochemical fluxes
  Dr I M Bell, Prof G Greenway, Dr D Kuvshinov, Dr M Rogerson
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
To celebrate the University's research successes, the University of Hull is offering six full-time UK/EU/International PhD Scholarships for candidates applying for each of the following projects.
