  An Exploration of the Impact of UK Austerity on Local Community Resilience to Natural Hazards
  Dr C MacRae, Dr J Adekola
Application Deadline: 13 May 2019
Project reference number - GSBS-2019-103. Local government increasingly focus efforts on identifying and managing risks. A central part of this process is building resilience amongst Scottish communities to deal with local risk(s) including those from natural hazards.
  Risk assessment of bridges under flood and earthquake hazards
  Dr E Tubaldi
Application Deadline: 3 August 2019
The research will require the development of advanced models for describing the sources of hazards (namely earthquakes and floods) as well as the structural vulnerability under multiple events with different intensity.
  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.
  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.
  Integrating resilience into flood modelling - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Dr M Pregnolato, Prof P Bates
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019
About the Project. Flooding is the most widely distributed of all natural hazards with floods from rivers, estuaries and the sea threatening many millions of people worldwide.
  What can History Teach us About Disaster Resilience? - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Dr D Haines
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019
About the project. ’Natural’ disasters pose an increasing threat in an urbanising, inequitable world, but they are nothing new. Regions such as China, India, Europe and North America have records about natural hazards and human responses dating back hundreds or even thousands of years.
  Geostatistical models for parametric insurance triggers
  Dr B Youngman, Dr T Economou
Application Deadline: 29 April 2019
This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  New analytical and simulation tools in clinical oncology
  Dr G Stupfler, Dr C Brignell
Applications accepted all year round
New analytical and simulation tools in clinical oncology. PhD studentship in Mathematical Sciences. School of Mathematical Sciences, University of Nottingham.
  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).
