  Long-term performance and sustainability of post-disaster housing projects (Advert Reference: RDF19/EE/ABE/WEDAWATTA)
  Dr G Wedawatta
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
One of the four key priorities of the Sendai Framework of Action 2015-2030 (1) is to ‘Build Back Better’ in recovery, rehabilitation and reconstruction.
  Protection and agency of vulnerable and marginalised persons in disaster prevention and management: A human rights based approach.
  Dr M Aronsson-Storrier
Applications accepted all year round
It is widely acknowledged that disasters, such as devastating earthquakes, cyclones or tsunamis, disproportionality affect the already marginalised, and create negative cycles of marginalisation and poverty, as well as that such disasters are not the result of natural hazards, but rather of hazards in combination with human-made vulnerabilities (eg Wisner et al 2004; Kelman et al 2016).
  Refugee children, 1960s-present: a study of the exploitation of children separated from their parents by war, conflict or environmental disaster.
  Dr J Spicksley
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
To celebrate the University's research successes, the University of Hull is offering a full-time UK/EU/International PhD Scholarship for candidates applying for each of the following projects as part of a new research cluster.
  Understanding the impact of building regulations and planning policies on achieving sustainable and resilient cities
  Dr K Chmutina
Applications accepted all year round
It is commonly agreed that building regulations and planning policies play an important role in reducing disaster risks; yet there is little understanding about disaster risk creation in the contexts where building regulations and planning policies are absent or poorly implemented.
  Exploring appropriate disaster risk awareness raising methods among informal construction sector
  Dr K Chmutina
Applications accepted all year round
Rapid but often poorly controlled urbanisation and the increase in construction delivered by informal workers with low levels of education and vocational training in locations highly vulnerable to impacts of natural hazards is common in Low and Middle-Income Countries around the world.
  Community Resilience – Benefit or Burden?
  Dr T Coates
Applications accepted all year round
Community resilience has become a central part of disaster management approaches over recent years, adopted by policymakers and practitioners’ worldwide.
  Machine Learning & Earth Observation to detect rainfall induced landslides
  Prof Z Li
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/. This PhD project aims to.
  Global flood predictability, early warning and the communication of probabilistic forecasts.
  Dr H Cloke, Dr L Stephens
Applications accepted all year round
Earth system models are increasingly being used to support decision-making processes in disaster risk management, for example, they can be used in early warning systems for natural hazards, where the forecasts can lead to disaster risk reduction.
  Next generation landscape mapping: machine learning and big data methods for exploiting earth observation data
  Dr C Rowland
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
This is an exciting opportunity to explore machine learning and big data methods, in combination with earth observation data, to extract information on land cover and habitat condition.
