We are now looking for applications for our available fully funded PhD studentships with the DREAM CDT (Centre for Doctoral Training). DREAM, Data, Risk and Environmental Analytical Methods, is a partnership between four leading universities based within the UK, Cranfield, Newcastle, Cambridge and Birmingham, and is now into its 3rd year. The CDT focuses on the use of big data to solve environmental risks, with topics covering a wide field of research. All PhD students have a wealth of training opportunities available to them as well as regular networking opportunities with those based at the other partner universities.
Newcastle are looking for applicants interested in any of the PhD’s listed below, with anyone interested asked to contact Dr Stuart Barr.
- Massive multi-agent simulation of environmental risks to interdependent infrastructure
- Environmental risks to global resource flows
- High resolution modelling of real-world floods – models, forecasts and uncertainties
- Extreme rainfall forecasting: new statistical simulation and Big Data methods for making sense of rainfall radar and rain gauges
- Capturing Tsunamis and Storm Surges: Coupling the Human and Natural Systems through Games Technology
- Earth observation for UK-wide flood infrastructure risk management
- Preserving Privacy for Urban Data in the Internet of Things
- Big data real-time online analysis of urban flooding impact on traffic flows
- Improving decision making in hazard situations using geovisualisation
- Can citizen science observations improve real-time flood risk assessment – bringing the crowd to the cloud?
More information on these PhD’s are available on the DREAM website, where you can also find more details on the CDT and how to apply.
