  Erosion hazards in a changing climate: making inland communities more resilient
  Dr J Cooper, Prof A Plater, Prof J Hooke, Mr D Viner
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
This modelling project aims to quantify how future climate scenarios will affect the frequency and severity of erosion hazards in catchments, the vulnerability of key rural infrastructure and how we might best mitigate their impact.
  Assessing and forecasting risks of intense rainfall induced natural hazards on infrastructure networks
  Dr X Xia, Dr T Dijkstra
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Loughborough University is a top-ten rated university in England for research intensity (REF2014). In choosing Loughborough for your research, you’ll work alongside academics who are leaders in their field.
  Dangerous liaisons: the relationships between algal blooms and human pathogens in freshwaters
  Dr D Oliver, Dr L Carvalho, Dr P Hunter, Dr R Quilliam
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
We are seeking a highly motivated individual to carry out interdisciplinary PhD research linking across freshwater ecology and applied microbiology in the context of integrated catchment management.
  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.
  Deadly Climate Hazards Combined: Tropical Cyclones and Deadly Heat
  Dr T Matthews, Dr J Hillier
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Loughborough University is a top-ten rated university in England for research intensity (REF2014). In choosing Loughborough for your research, you’ll work alongside academics who are leaders in their field.
  Are glacial lake hazards increasing int eh Bhutan Hilmaya?
  Dr S Dunning
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/. Himalayan glaciers have shrunk rapidly in recent decades, coincident with climate warming.
  Bridging the gap between environment and health – exposure assessment of potentially harmful agents in soil
  Dr P Hooda
Applications accepted all year round
Our current understanding of soil exposure in the UK population is extremely limited. The current risk assessment paradigm makes large assumptions based on very uncertain data to estimate direct exposures via soil ingestion or dust inhalation.
  Assessing and Mitigating Microbial Risks Associated with Irrigation Systems Used in Total Controlled Environment Agriculture (TCEA)
  Dr N Holden, Prof N Strachan, Dr A Holmes
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Background. Microbial contamination of horticultural crops can result in serious outbreaks of foodborne illness or crop losses through plant disease.
  Detecting Anomalies from Satellite and Terrestrial Data Sources by Data Analytics
  Dr Y Bi
Applications accepted all year round
Applications are invited for a European Space Agency (ESA) funded PhD studentship tenable in the Faculty of Computing, Engineering and the Built environment at the Jordanstown Campus.
  Earthwork Stability - Modelling and Simulation of geotechnical parameters
  Dr N Metje, Prof D N Chapman
Applications accepted all year round
Transport networks act as the conduit for energy and urban systems as the pipes and cables are often placed below roads and alongside rail.
