Project Description

The PhD project aims to understand and model the economic contexts that lead to wildfires and their economic implications at the micro and macro level. This will involve using both localized economic data as well as high resolution remote sensing and climate data. The emphasis will be on the quantitative modelling of the relevant phenomena using advanced statistical techniques. Principally based within the University of Birmingham, the successful candidate will also have secondments both within the UK at Arup and at DEMETER, Greece.

Applicants are invited to apply on-line via our e-recruitment system. This can be found at http://www.birmingham.ac.uk/staff/jobs/index.aspx. Submit motivation letter and a CV. Use template for motivation letter at https://pyrolife.lessonsonfire.eu/ that outlines four topics we expect you to cover, and that also includes a form to show your eligibility for the program in terms of early stage researcher and mobility requirements.
