  Dynamics of seawater intrusion in heterogeneous coastal aquifers
  Dr A Ahmed
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Saltwater intrusion (SWI) in coastal aquifers is one of the main challenges for water resources management. It is a natural process that happens because of the density difference between the denser saltwater and the lighter freshwater.
  Environmental impact of housing and infrastructure
  Dr A Tomor
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Environmental impact of housing and infrastructure is a long-term concern that needs to be addressed holistically. Currently civil engineering projects are primarily led by construction costs and the environmental impact is rarely considered as a deciding factor.

  Dr M Heidarzadeh
Application Deadline: 26 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for our EPSRC funded Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) PhD studentship for the project titled “Modelling coastal cliff erosion/collapse as a result of extreme weather impacts.
  Multivariate flood risk analysis under uncertainty and nonstationarity
  Dr Y Fan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Flood risk inference would generally be influenced by a number of factors (e.g. data availability, model selection), which lead to extensive uncertainty in risk inferences.
  Reliable hydrological prediction under climate change
