TweetThis! Two PhD Studentships - The Carbon Footprint of UK Cities

Department of Civil and Building Engineering
Applications are invited for two 3 1/2 year PhD studentships within the Department of Civil and Building Engineering at Loughborough University. The research will be part of the EPRSC funded 4M project: Modelling, measurement, mapping and management: an evidence based methodology for understanding and shrinking the urban carbon footprint. The project is a collaboration between Loughborough, Sheffield, Newcastle, and Leeds Universities and investigates the carbon emissions from travel and buildings, and the carbon sequestration potential of green spaces. The city of Leicester is the case-study area.

The two studentships will investigate the willingness of householders to embark on actions to reduce their carbon emissions and the reduction in emissions that district, and other community energy schemes, might yield. The city wide face-to-face survey of households offers numerous other opportunities for exciting studies based on primary data collection and analysis.

Applicants should have a genuine interest in energy and climate change, a minimum of an upper second class honours degree or equivalent in either a relevant engineering/science or social science field and good written and verbal communication skills. Fees at the UK/EU rate are offered together with a tax free stipend of, initially, £12,940 for 3 1/2 years.

For informal discussions, please contact Dr Steven Firth by email s.k.firth@lboro.ac.uk or on 01509 228546 or Prof. Kevin Lomas k.j.lomas@lboro.ac.uk.

Applications can be accessed on line at: http://www.lboro.ac.uk/prospectus/pg/essential/apply/index.htm

Closing date: 10th July 2009.
