  ONE Planet DTP - Developing novel geophysical tools to investigate urban plant-water processes.
  Dr R Stirling
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD aims to improve our understanding of how street vegetation influence soil-water capacity in the built environment through the use of geophysical tomography.
  ONE Planet DTP - Extreme events and mechanisms of flood generation under climate change (Ref: OP20262).
  Prof Stewart Franks
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Description. Flood events cause major disruption and socio-economic impacts and with expectations of future climate change, optimally managing such events becomes increasingly imperative.
  Climatic responsive heating and cooling for indoor thermal environments
  Dr R Yao
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change and regional climates significantly impact on energy consumption of heating and cooling for achieving thermal comfort.
  Investigation of Tectonic Effects on Pipeline Stabilty
  Dr S Ullah
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pipelines make an important group of structures called lifelines, as they support conducting water, oil and gas essential for life.
  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.
  PhD in designing high-performance electric cars of the future.
  Prof P H Mellor
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Be a driving part of the Electric Revolution of transport by designing and testing affordable high-performance electric motors and be part of a global effort to reduce CO2 emissions.
  PhD in SiC and GaN Power Electronics: Innovative semi-conductor materials, GaN and SiC, offer significant design and performance-based benefits over silicon and are a real competitive advantage.
  Prof B Stark
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Innovative semi-conductor materials, GaN and SiC, offer significant design and performance-based benefits over silicon and are a real competitive advantage.
  Integrated approach to assess tree stability in storms and risk assessment (SRPe-Industry Doctorate Programme)
  Dr M Ciantia
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

More frequent intense storm events, associated with climate change, increase the likelihood of tree collapse adjacent to transport corridors that lead to costly disruption of road and rail journeys.
  The role of environmental quality, economic success and social inclusion in sustainability transformation
  Prof D Houston, Dr H Rumble, Prof A Melis
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: 24 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.
  Urban Tree for Cooling Cities
  Prof L Shao
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to gain new and in-depth understanding of urban tree – built environment interactions. It will be carried out in the context of prevention of summer overheating and creation of comfortable outdoor and indoor living environments for city dwellers.
