  Earthquake-induced instabilities in orogenic and volcanic environments
  Prof Y Lavallee, Dr J Kendrick, Ms L.N Schaefer
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Landslides and sector collapses are frequent consequences of tectonic earthquakes (Keefer, 1984, 2002), and represent an important secondary hazard, costing the economy ~$2 billion annually in damage and causing thousands of fatalities in the last century.
  Modelling seismicity as a spatio-temporal point process using inlabru
  Dr M Naylor, Prof F Lindgren, Prof I Main
Application Deadline: 8 February 2019
BACKGROUND. This PhD is funded through the ‘RISE’ project as part of the Horizon 2020 program. Towards operational forecasting of earthquakes and early warning capacity for more resilient societies.
  The application of Eurocode 8 Part1 around the world
  Prof C Georgopoulos
Applications accepted all year round
Eurocode 8 (EC8) is a state-of-the-art third generation code for seismic design. It includes well established concepts such as energy dissipation and new concepts such as displacement-based method.
  Carbon Capture and Storage: perceptions, attitudes, and acceptability
  Prof A Longo, Dr C Bond
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project will be supervised by Professor Alberto Longo of Queen’s University School of Biological Sciences/Institute for Global Food Security and by Dr Clare Bond of the University of Aberdeen’s School of Geosciences.
  Anatomy of subduction megathrust: a unique view from deep drilling into the Nankai Trough, Japan
  Prof D Faulkner, Dr J Bedford, Dr E Mariani
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Subduction zone megathrust earthquakes are the largest and most destructive on earth, with many rupturing the seafloor and generating devastating tsunamis such as that produced after the M9.0 Tohoku-Oki earthquake in 2011.
  Assessing the value of data for engineering seismology
  Dr J Douglas
Applications accepted all year round
The shaking that occurs in the epicentral region of large earthquakes can be highly destructive to civil engineering infrastructure.
  Smart City Data Security, Gateways Efficient Routing and IP Capacity
  Dr S Yousef
Applications accepted all year round
Research Group. Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering Research Group. https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-technology/research/our-research-institutes-and-groups/electronics-and-telecommunications-engineering-research-group.
  The role of shared, connected and autonomous vehicles in urban emergency response for natural hazards. Project ID - SEBE0024
  Dr G Fountas, Dr A Fonzone
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Recent examples of severe natural hazards across the globe (e.g., wildfires in California, US and Attica, Greece in 2018; hurricanes Irma, Harvey and Florence in 2017 and 2018; Indonesian earthquake and tsunami in 2018) have highlighted the role of effective emergency response systems towards mitigating societal and economic impact.
  Modelling Ground Borne Vibrations Using Efficient Finite Elements
  Research Group: Institute for Infrastructure & Environment
  Dr S Mohamed
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
Simulation of ground borne vibrations is very important for many engineering applications. Soil-structure interaction, earthquake engineering, transportation-Induced vibrations and earth subsurface imaging are few examples where such simulation is needed.
  Hyperbolic equations with irregular coefficients: very weak solutions and applications
  Dr C Garetto, Dr M Discacciati
Application Deadline: 15 February 2019
Linear and nonlinear hyperbolic PDEs arise in basically all sciences (physics, chemistry, medicine, engineering, astronomy, etc.).
