  Applied Economics: What works for firms and the gender pay gap?
  Prof G Razzu, Dr C Singleton
Applications accepted all year round
A vast literature has studied the determinants of gender pay gaps (see for reviews Altonji and Blank, 1999; Weichselbaumer and Winter-Ebmer, 2005; Blau and Kahn, 2017).
  The Economics of Superstars: Wages in Sport - understanding using primary data the changes over the postwar period in sport for its foremost performers
  Dr J Reade, Dr S Jewell
Applications accepted all year round
The work of Sherwin Rosen (1981) established a literature on the economics of superstars - an attempt to explain the very high premia top performers in a given field are able to attract.
  Touching the Past: Affective and Intersectional Explorations of Televisual Period Drama
  Dr F Woods, Prof J Bignell
Applications accepted all year round
A multi-disciplinary approach to televisual period drama engaging with television history. Seeking to broaden the range of canonical dramas (particularly around class, race and gender) through an intersectional approach, drawing out forgotten or ignored programming in British, US and/or world television systems.
  A Nutrigenetics approach to study gene-diet interactions on Obesity in a Brazilian population
  Dr V Karani, Prof J Lovegrove
Applications accepted all year round
We are seeking a highly motivated candidate for a PhD project that will focus on genetic epidemiology and statistical genetics.
  SCENARIO :Data synthesis and integration for improved climate impact assessment, modelling and policy
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr R Cornforth, Dr E Tarnavsky
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Climate change is already demonstrated in changes in the frequency and severity of extreme weather events.
  SCENARIO: A new approach to navigating uncertainty in climate-related hydrologic risk
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Prof T Shepherd, Dr K.A. Smith, Prof N Arnell, Dr G Darch
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Climate change poses a severe threat to the environment, and it is essential to be able to evaluate climate-related risk and provide appropriate guidance to decision-makers.
  SCENARIO: Analysis of peatland carbon dynamics using combined optical and microwave satellite data
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Prof K Morrison, Dr TL Quaife
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Peatlands are a key component of the terrestrial carbon cycle and sequester large amounts of carbon from the atmosphere. Monitoring their health and state is therefore key to understanding carbon dynamics and the important role peatlands play in the climate, and in climate change.
  SCENARIO: Flow processes and turbulent exchange in urban canopies
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr J Barlow, Dr O Coceal
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Most of the world’s population now experiences an urban version of weather extremes and climate change. Accurate forecasting of weather and air quality in cities relies on correctly representing the physics of turbulent exchange between the surface and the overlying atmosphere.
