  Landslide nowcasting using advanced data analytics
  Dr A Abellan, Dr B Murphy, Prof T Wright
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The fast proliferation of new satellite, aerial and terrestrial remote sensing techniques has provided new technological and scientific opportunities to investigate geohazards during the last decade.
  Machine learning to detect earthquakes in energy extraction and storage
  Dr A Nowacki, Dr S de Ridder
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project, you will study microearthquakes caused by energy production with machine learning to understand why and how they occur.
  Managing complexity and uncertainty in the transition to net-zero energy systems
  Dr C Bale, Dr K Roelich
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In June 2019, the UK committed to a legally-binding target to bring all greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050. This provides a hugely challenging, yet necessary goal to radically and rapidly decarbonise the UK’s energy systems.
  Modelling behaviours for future policy analysis: Integrating choice modelling and microsimulation
  Dr N Lomax, Prof S Hess, Dr D Birks
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Introduction. Creating simulations of future outcomes on the basis of model assumptions is essential for resource planning and policy formation across a wide range of disciplines.
  Modelling middle actors in the building energy retrofit system
  Prof A Heppenstall, Dr A Owen
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Transforming the UK’s existing buildings to a zero carbon building stock by 2050, in order to meet statutory targets, remains an enormous challenge and a major business opportunity.
  On solid ground? Predicting high-speed railway track settlement using geophysical analysis.
  Dr S de Ridder, Dr A Booth, Dr P Livermore
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

High-speed trains induce a small level of permanent settlement within their supporting railway track and ground during passage. The settlement grows over time, but the degree of settlement varies along the track depending upon geographical changes in ground conditions.
  Restoration of degraded tropical forests in Vietnam
  Dr D Spracklen, Prof O Phillips
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Extensive restoration of degraded forests is crucial if we are to avoid dangerous climate change and avert major loss of biodiversity.
  Targeted agrochemical delivery using smart nanoparticles for sustainable agriculture
  Dr A Tyler, Prof K. Field
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Huge amounts of agrochemicals, such as fertilisers and biostimulants, are applied to arable farmland each year to boost crop performance.
  The dynamics of jets in rapidly rotating fluids by computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation
  Dr P Livermore, Prof R Hollerbach
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The movement of electrically conducting liquid inside the core of Earth and other planets is responsible for generating their planetary magnetic fields, yet we know very little about their dynamics, as creating realistic simulations is extremely challenging.
  The environmental impacts of Agri-Environmental Schemes
  Dr G Ziv, Prof P Chapman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nearly 50% of European Union (EU) land is used for agriculture. These landscapes have been shaped by centuries of large-scale human impacts through traditional land-use systems (i.e.
