  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.
  Electric, autonomous, shared mobility: who wants them all? Project ID SEBE0022
  Dr A Fonzone, Dr G Fountas
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Three main innovations have the potential to disrupt road mobility as we know today. the mass adoption of electric vehicles, the development and diffusion of driverless vehicles, and the shift to shared models of vehicle ownership and ridership.
  Group activity and travel scheduling with shared autonomous vehicles - Project ID SEBE0023
  Dr A Fonzone, Dr G Fountas
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Although we do not know yet what mobility patterns will look like with fully automated vehicles, what we do know is that the future will be different from the present.
  Modelling movement of large sediment in river flows
  Prof J Hooke, Dr J Cooper
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Motivation and wider context. In high magnitude flood events very large particles, including boulders and large pieces of masonry can be carried, especially in ephemerally-flowing channels of dry climates.
  Spatially Integrated Models to Improve Urban Freight Transport Systems
  Prof P Chhetri
Applications accepted all year round
The project aims to develop a “sustainable urban freight distribution,” model which maximises the distribution. efficiency, while minimising the environmental and social impacts, of the distribution of goods in urban areas.
  Regulating Cell-to-cell Movement in Plants - Plasmodesmal Gating by a Contractile Cellular Machinery
  Dr P Hemsley, Dr J Tilsner, Dr A Roberts
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Background. Plant viruses are major crop pathogens with a global agro-economic impact. The Tilsner lab has recently made major advances in understanding how viruses transport their genome from infected to naïve cells through plasmodesmata, cell-cell-connecting membrane-lined channels.
  Plasmodesmal gating by a contractile cellular machinery
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr J Tilsner
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Background. Plant viruses are major crop pathogens with a global agro-economic impact. The Tilsner lab has recently made major advances in understanding how they transport their genome from infected into naïve cells through plasmodesmata (PD), cell-cell-connecting membrane-lined channels.
  Optimal green-space configuration/planning to cool a city
  Dr X Cai, Dr L Chapman
Applications accepted all year round
Risks associated with extreme weather in cities, such as heat waves, are all projected to increase with global climate change. Governments have made considerable effort to determine feasible urban planning and climate mitigation strategies.
  Chasing convective storm evolution with swarms of space-borne Ka-band radars
  Dr A Battaglia, Dr H Boesch
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Convective storms are the heart of the Earth’s weather and climate system.
  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Sustainable Infrastructure Systems
  Join the EPSRC funded Centre for Doctoral Training in Sustainable Infrastructure Systems (CDT-SIS) for a 4-year Integrated PhD (iPhD).
