  Multivariate flood risk analysis under uncertainty and nonstationarity
  Dr Y Fan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Flood risk inference would generally be influenced by a number of factors (e.g. data availability, model selection), which lead to extensive uncertainty in risk inferences.
  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.
  Transport of radioactive waste along the Sellafield shoreline: climate change impact and mitigation strategies through nature based solutions
  Dr N Leonardi, Prof A Plater
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This proposal aims to build on previous collaboration across the Department of Geography and Planning and NNL on the ARCoES project.
  The assessment of extreme urban flooding risks on traffic network using Digital Twin technology
  Dr L Zhuo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Flooding is one of the costliest forms of natural disaster and impacts are expected to increase, in particular, due to climate change, urbanisation and population growth.
  EPSRC PhD studentship in: Evaluating the Public Health Risks of Urban Flooding Events
  Dr I Douterelo, Dr JD Shucksmith, Dr H Jensen
Application Deadline: 1 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

EPSRC PhD studentship in. Evaluating the Public Health Risks of Urban Flooding Events. 3.5-years tax-free stipend of £15,000 per year and all tuition fees paid.
  Assessing unintended consequences of structural coastal flood protection
  Dr A Kebede
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Floods are the most frequent and damaging natural hazards, with impacts expected to increase significantly due to future climate and socio-economic changes.
  SEESALT: Novel ways to ’SEE’ coastal ’SALT’ marshes using low-cost drones and sensors
  Dr D Green, Dr D Mauquoy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Saltmarshes are found extensively along low wave energy coastlines resulting from fine sediment accumulation and vegetation establishment.
  Quantifying the costs and benefits of avoiding new development in floodplains
  Dr A Kebede
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Floods are the most common, damaging and costliest natural hazards worldwide. Potential impacts are expected to increase due to climate change (e.g., increased precipitation, sea-level rise, and more frequent storms) as well as socio-economic change (e.g., growing population, GDP, urbanisation).
  Intelligent Dynamic Flood Response and Recovery Strategy (iD-FRe2S) PhD
  Prof M Rivas Casado, Dr Y Bajón Fernández
Application Deadline: 15 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Flood recovery response in urban areas depends on the type of flood (e.g., pluvial, fluvial, groundwater) and the type of water (i.e., clean, grey or black water) affecting the area.
  PhD Studentship in flood and landslide risk to transport infrastructure
  Prof S Glendining, Dr R Stirling
Application Deadline: 24 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Number of awards. 1. Start date and duration. September 2020, 4 years. Overview. Road and rail networks typically follow long, level routes adjacent to rivers making the ground that supports them particularly vulnerable to flood induced modes of failure.
