About the Project
Coventry University (CU) is inviting applications from suitably qualified graduates for a self-funded PhD project on sustainable cities. The candidate must have at least a BSc or background in at least one of the following areas: supply chain and operations, engineering, computing, or Business and Economics.
The increase in global population has led to the need for more sustainable and innovative methods throughout the food supply chain. This is partly to ensure food security, but also to help deal with rising CO2 levels and global emissions. The aim of the project is to investigate the feasibility of integrating vertical farming and automated food processing, with an indoor transport delivery system. The main objective is to determine what effect vertical farming has on the food supply chain. The project would propose strategic considerations for the commercial implementation of vertical farms in cities.
Training and Development
The successful candidate will receive comprehensive research training including technical, personal and professional skills.
All researchers at Coventry University (from PhD to Professor) are part of the Doctoral College and Centre for Research Capability and Development, which provides support with high-quality training and career development activities.
