This project is supported by colleagues in the Storylab and GSI.
  ONE Planet DTP - Designing Electric vehicle Commuter travel ENvironments for fuTure LifestYles (DECENTLY) (OP20309)
  Dr D Dissanayake
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

As a means to mitigate impending climate change and air quality issues associated to transportation emissions, the UK is set a target for 60% of new cars to be electric vehicles (EVs) by 2030.
  ONE Planet DTP - Real-time data to manage urban environmental risks (OP20216)
  Dr R Dawson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

High concentrations of people in urban areas concentrate impacts from extreme weather, climate change and environmental risks. These include poor air quality, heatwaves amplified by the urban heat island and surface water flooding.
  Environmental data science: a new machine learning approach to study the influence of climate change on extreme weather (NOWACKPU20SCIEC)
  Dr P Nowack, Prof M Joshi
Application Deadline: 30 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is one of the most pressing societal and scientific challenges. Improving our understanding of climate change, in particular concerning its impacts on the country- or even city-scale, is therefore a global research priority.
  Remaking and upcycling fashion and textiles: investigating the role of design and social enterprise in shaping the transition to a circular economy
  Dr E Igoe, Dr M Anderson, Prof D Sugg Ryan
Application Deadline: 23 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully-funded three year PhD to commence in October 2020. This studentship belongs to ‘Transforming Portsmouth’, a cross-university interdisciplinary research programme designed to provide actionable evidence to underpin Portsmouth’s transformation to a sustainable city.
  SCENARIO - A multi-scale modelling approach to bring urban climate and weather into built environment
  Dr Z Luo, Prof S Grimmond
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

With rapid global urbanization, more than 50% population now live in cities, and it will be projected to be 70% by 2050. Our living environment is exposed to overheating risk due to the combination of climate extreme, i.e., heatwave and urban heat island.
