  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.
  Global resilience assessment using artificial neural network
  Dr M Imani, Dr D Hajializadeh
Applications accepted all year round
Research Group. Built Environment Research Group.
  Multidimensional resilience of fragmented forest patch networks in temperate and tropical environments.
  Prof J Travis, Prof M Emmerson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
How resilient are forests to fragmentation? How can we manage networks of fragmented forest patches to increase their resilience? These are critical ecological questions as almost all forests in temperate and tropical systems have undergone fragmentation or are undergoing fragmentation currently.
  Resilience-based asset management in Integrated Urban Wastewater System (IUWS)
  Dr M Imani
Applications accepted all year round
Research Group. Built Environment Research Group.
  What confers general stress resilience in plants: cellular screening and directed-evolution approaches
  Dr N Nakayama
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
Climate change threatens global food security, aggravating uncertainty in agricultural production worldwide. It is a hard challenge to solve, because the nature of climate change often is to become more erratic and unpredictable.
  Managing resilience of a temperate forest to future climate change with a nutrient bent
  Dr Z Shi, Dr T Pugh
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
More than a quarter of recent anthropogenic CO2 emissions are absorbed by forests. This is primarily attributed to enhanced plant growth as a result of elevated atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration (eCO2).
  The potential of psychological interventions to develop or increase individual psychological resilience
  Dr S Cassidy, Dr P Eachus
Applications accepted all year round
Psychological resilience is described as the ability to ‘bounce back’ from adversity, to beat the odds, recover and thrive.
  Community resilience in an age of austerity – examining volunteering as a response to public sector cuts
  Research Group: Strategy and International Business group
  Dr G Nichols, Dr M McGuinness
Applications accepted all year round
This research will examine community response to cuts in local government support of traditional leisure services through the theoretical frameworks of social capital (1), the big society (2, 3), community resilience (4,5) and how these are constructed and understood in the context of disruption to local community structures arising from austerity measures.
  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.
  (BBSRC DTP) Manipulating plant genetic diversity to improve resilience in grasslands
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Prof D Johnson, Prof R Bardgett, Dr M Semchenko
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
For years the agricultural sector has pursued cultivation of crops with identical genetic properties so that variation in the resulting phenotype is as small as possible.
