Showing 1 to 10 of 73
  Fractured cities, arts and everyday life in a post-conflict context
  Dr I Kutznetsova
Application Deadline: 30 December 2018
Applicants are invited to work on revealing the role of visual and/or performing arts in cities and after violent conflict through the prism of the resistance and tactics of subjugated groups and the strategies of those with power.
  Extracting novel algorithms from Nature
  Dr G Bassel, Dr I Johnston
Application Deadline: 22 January 2019
The development of algorithms underpins the information processing age and data science. Creating novel algorithms capable for processing information under different conditions and scenarios provides opportunities to extend computation to new domains and under different conditions.
  Web archives and cities: mining the web to learn our cities
  Dr E Tranos, Prof J Grieve
Application Deadline: 22 January 2019
This project will explore how the dynamics of cities are reflected in and, therefore, can be sensed by mining online content. Not only cities change, but they also change faster than the secondary data update pace.
  Multi-hazard risk and uncertainty quantification for rail infrastructure systems
  Dr S Kaewunruen
Applications accepted all year round
The University of Birmingham, as part of a multi-university multi-disciplinary rail research team, has recently been The University of Birmingham is host…
  Co-creating age- and activity-friendly urban environments with older citizens and community stakeholders
  Dr A. Stathi
Application Deadline: 15 January 2019
We welcome applications for an exciting PhD studentship at the School of Sport, Exercise and Rehabilitation Sciences.
  Validating Cenozoic records of deep-sea ostracod diversity
  Dr I Boomer
Applications accepted all year round
Ostracods are microscopic, bivalved crustaceans that have a long fossil record in marine and non-marine habitats. The existence of deep-sea ostracod assemblages in today’s oceans have been known since the 19th century Challenger expedition.
  How does climate influence insect responses to pesticides? – A key question for food security
  Dr S Hayward, Dr N J Hodges, Dr L Orsini
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Background. As poikilotherms the body temperature of insects is directly determined by environmental conditions. Thus, microclimate temperature profiles, which are often highly variable, will dictate rates of metabolic activity and development as well as behaviour.
  Total Atmospheric Emissions from the Biosphere
  Dr W J Bloss, Dr L Kramer
Applications accepted all year round
The dominant source of hydrocarbons to the atmosphere is vegetation – biogenic volatile organic compounds or BVOCs. In the atmosphere, BVOCs undergo chemical processing, leading to the formation of secondary pollutants such as ozone and organic aerosol particles, affecting human and environmental health and climate.
  Unravelling early teleost relationships: diversification at the dawn of the most successful fish radiation
  Dr S Giles, Dr Z Johanson
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
With over 30,000 living species ubiquitous in all aquatic environments, teleost ray-finned fishes represent the largest living vertebrate group.
  The importance of land-atmosphere interactions for future changes in extreme rainfall in convection permitting models
  Dr M Widmann, Dr X Cai
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Anthropogenic climate change is expected to lead to substantial increase in extreme precipitation with impact on flooding. However, simulating precipitation and how it may change in the future is still a major challenge, and associated with large uncertainties.
