  Climate change and the development of built asset adaptation strategies
  Research Group: Future Cities Research Network
  Prof K Jones, Prof A Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. Future Cities Research Network - https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-engineering/research/institutes-and-groups/future-cities.
  SCENARIO - Sub-seasonal “flash” droughts in Europe: dynamics, predictability and teleconnections
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr N Klingaman, Dr B Dong, Prof E Black
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sub-seasonal “flash” drought events are rapidly developing, multi-week periods of elevated temperatures and evapotranspiration, but reduced soil moisture and precipitation.
  Sensory Navigation: Reading the Sensescape of a City
  Dr Carolina Vasilikou, Prof L Shao
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sensory navigation proposes to introduce a novel way of experiencing the city centre of Reading, through the senses, including the visual, thermal, acoustic, visual and olfactory environment.
  ONEPlanet DTP: Interventions to reduce the impact of climate change and other environmental stresses on oak health (OP20317)
  Dr R Gaulton
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oak trees are a hugely valuable component of the UK’s treescape, providing a wealth of ecosystem services in addition to their cultural importance.
  Climate change consequences on soil behaviour and soil-structure interactions
  Research Group: Institute for Infrastructure & Environment
  Dr M Sutman, Dr G Medero
Application Deadline: 2 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The global temperature is estimated to rise by 4˚C by the end of the century if no action is taken to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
  SCENARIO - Robustness of bridge structures under extreme hydraulic actions
  Dr B Imam, Dr J Sagaseta
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Extreme weather events can impose hydraulic actions on bridge structures which can lead to structural damage or even total collapse (see Fig.
  QUADRAT DTP CASE: Sustainable Resilience to Coastal Erosion: Innovative Approaches to Protection of Assets Along Coastlines at Risk
  Dr D Green, Prof J McKinley
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

All coastlines are subject to dynamic change through wave and wind action resulting in significant loss or gain of land through erosion and/or accretion.
  ONE Planet DTP - Antarchitecture: constraining East Antarctic Ice Sheet dynamics with radar-derived englacial stratigraphy and structure (OP202028)
  Dr N Ross
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Antarctic ice sheet contains a significant potential contribution to future global sea level rise. Satellite-observations of ice sheet change, numerical modelling and geological evidence demonstrates that several parts of the ice sheet could undergo unstable collapse, unlocking this sea level potential.
  ONE Planet DTP - CLIPI- Climate planning and implementations of infrastructures (OP20227)
  Dr O Heidrich
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cities around the world and in the UK in particular develop local climate plans (Heidrich et al 2016; Reckien at al 2018). Yet, the success of these plans might only unfold when their aims and objectives in terms of climate actions are implemented – infrastructures are built (outcome).
  ONE Planet DTP - : Qualitifying stocks and fluxes of organic carbon in the Atlantic saltmarshes of the Solway Firth and the threats posed by climatic change. (Ref: OP20235)
  Dr M Deary
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Atlantic saltmarshes of the Solway Firth represent nearly 25% of the UK total. These wetlands support internationally important biodiversity yet are highly vulnerable to coastal squeeze; eroded by the sea and reclaimed for our use inland.
