  Novel Approaches to Engaging Land Managers in Monitoring the Impact of Agri-Environment-Climate Schemes
  Dr K Prager, Prof S Redpath
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Agri-environment-climate schemes (AECS) are a voluntary policy mechanism to incentivise and compensate farmers for undertaking environmental measures as part of their land management.
  Sustaining partnership approaches – evaluating effectiveness, health and longevity of agri-environmental collaboratives
  Dr K Prager, Dr T Potts
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A multitude of partnerships have developed between actors from the farming, environment, conservation, community, business and government sectors.
  Characterisation of flow around a bivalve (Pecten Maximus) shell
  Dr M Stewart, Prof V Nikora
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A number of studies have highlighted the ability of freshwater mussels to behave as so-called ecosystem engineers; actively modifying their local environment through mechanisms such as filtering and passively by modifying bed roughness.
  Developing geospatial methods for resource assessments of renewable energy technologies
  Prof R McKenna, Dr A Maheri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Energy planning processes require detailed data relating to the technical potential and associated costs of renewable energies. These data are employed by stakeholders and researchers to inform decision-making relating to future energy systems.
  Development of a low cost hyperspectral imaging device for remote sensing of environmental flows
  Dr M Stewart, Dr S Cameron
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hyperspectral imaging is widely used in industry and research but traditional commercial devices tend to suffer from high cost and low portability, as well as lacking information on the ultraviolet range of the spectrum or being unsuitable for underwater applications (Nevala and Baden, 2019).
  Energy system integration of offshore energy: exploring synergies between oil and gas and renewables sectors
  Prof R McKenna, Dr A Maheri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The offshore wind and Oil & Gas sectors are historically largely separate. This project seeks to exploit synergies between the two in order to reduce the costs associated with O&G abandonment.
  Multi-energy models of residential energy demand: further developments and international comparisons
  Prof R McKenna, Dr A Maheri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Several researchers have developed bottom-up simulation models (Load Profile Generators, LPGs) for residential buildings in various international contexts such as the UK (CREST/CHAP), Germany, Sweden, and Japan.
  Secondary currents in rough-bed open-channel flows and their interrelations with the primary mean flow and turbulence
  Prof V Nikora, Dr S Cameron
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Although the great significance of secondary flows for river processes has long been recognised, their origin, mechanics, effects, and interrelations with the primary mean flow and turbulence are still under debate and continue attracting close attention of hydrologists, geomorphologists, engineers, and, recently, stream ecologists.
  Very large scale motions (VLSM) in rough-bed turbulent open-channel flows: topology, statistics, dynamics
  Prof V Nikora, Dr S Cameron
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Turbulence in open-channel flows such as rivers and canals plays a key role in transport of momentum, sediments, nutrients, and other substances.
  What is the optimal scale for fully autonomous municipal energy systems?
  Prof R McKenna, Dr M Gronwald
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The energy transition requires the integration of large amounts of fluctuating, heterogeneously-spatially-distributed electricity into the energy system.
