About the Project
Flooding is the most widely distributed of all natural hazards with floods from rivers, estuaries and the sea threatening many millions of people worldwide. The UK is at the forefront for modelling flood hazards from local to global scale; however, resilience is currently not integrated in such models. This project looks into exploring how to embed resilience in flood impact models, like LISFLOOD-FP, and evaluating resilience-based scenarios; it aims to pioneer a new generation of flood impact models.
Why Choose this Opportunity
You will have the opportunity to engage with and build networks across the Faculty of Engineering and the School of Geographical Sciences, developing an interdisciplinary mindset and translational skills.
You are an enthusiastic student interested in hydrology and engineering, with prior experience (or at least have the potential to develop these) in programming, risk analysis and GIS.
About the programme
The Cabot Institute Masters by Research is a unique opportunity to work with a leading supervisor to deliver a one-year research project that you are passionate about. The programme will bring together exceptional students from all backgrounds with a common mission – protecting the planet and securing our future. As well as learning from your supervisor, you will learn from your fellow students; coming together to share your ideas and developing your problem-solving skills as part of an interdisciplinary team over the year. As well as being hosted within the Cabot Institute you will have a direct relationship within the relevant School for your research area, allowing you to fully take advantage of a wide-ranging research community.
Alongside your research project, you will benefit from a unique personal development and transferable skills training schedule. These unaccredited, optional events will give you the opportunity to come together with your peers to improve your research skills and develop an innovative approach to the global challenges we face today. You will also be encouraged to propose your own interests for a seminar series, giving you a unique platform to mould your studies and get involved directly with the programme. The training schedule will focus on:
• Interdisciplinarity & Collaboration
• Innovation & Enterprise
• Making your research a success
• Research communications
• Ignite your interests (your chance to propose ideas for a seminar series)
You will also gain access to the Cabot Institute’s network of experts across academia, government, business and industry via networking events. These opportunities will not only support your research, but give you the edge in your future career, whatever that may be.
