  Ecosystem services associated with aquatic plants in urban landscapes
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr C Hassall
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Current projections of urbanisation predict that between 2000 and 2030 the extent of urban areas will increase by an estimated 185%, representing a considerable threat to biodiversity and complex challenges for urban planners and conservationists alike (Hassall, 2014).
  Institute for Housing and Urban Development Studies (IHS), Erasmus University Rotterdam
IHS. is a cooperative institute of the Erasmus School of Economics and the Erasmus School of Social and Behavioral Sciences, Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR).
  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.
  NERC GW4+ DTP PhD Studentship: Development of diagnostic tools to measure indicators of disease and antimicrobial resistance via urban water profiling
  Prof B Kasprzyk-Hordern
Application Deadline: 7 January 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).
  Modelling the penetration of cool air from a park into urban street canyons
  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.
  SCENARIO: Flow processes and turbulent exchange in urban canopies
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr J Barlow, Dr O Coceal
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Most of the world’s population now experiences an urban version of weather extremes and climate change. Accurate forecasting of weather and air quality in cities relies on correctly representing the physics of turbulent exchange between the surface and the overlying atmosphere.
  Optimising urban environments by integrating surface water and greywater systems with urban agriculture
  Dr K Hyde
Applications accepted all year round
Greywater, or water that originated from showering and bathing, after subsequent treatment has important potential for sustaining urban agriculture and urban green infrastructure.
  Real Estate Futures: Understanding how disruptive trends will affect the (re)development and use of the urban built environment (Advert Reference: RDF19/EE/ABE/GREENHALGH)
  Dr P Greenhalgh
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Urban land and property markets are increasingly prone to dynamic and disruptive change, the drivers of which include technological, social, environmental and employment practices.
  Urban road safety & sustainability in low and middle income countries
  Dr H Evdorides
Applications accepted all year round
Globally there is a rapid movement of populations to urban areas in low and middle income countries (LMICs) in particular. With this move comes an increasing safety problem in urban core areas, particularly in relation to the safety of pedestrians, public transport facilities, urban intersections and urban areas.
  Species and size specific effects of urban trees on above- and below-ground ecosystem service provision
  Dr J Edmondson, Prof J Leake, Dr V Stovin, Dr K Doick
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
More than half of the global population live in urban areas, and that figure is projected to rise to 66% by 2050.
