Forwarded from CLIMLIST... The Queen’s Anniversary Prize winning Institute for the Environment at Brunel University, London, is offering an innovative PhD project on Climate Change and Aviation via the NERC London Doctoral Training Partnership. Project Description: Optimisation of aircraft design and operations for climate impact reduction The future of air travel is likely to be turbulent and uncertain. This project will address this important issue by investigating the climate change impacts from and on aircraft at transatlantic cruise altitudes. This will be achieved by using innovative techniques from climate science, contrail cloud physics, aerospace engineering and economics. We will also consider how these effects can be efficiently minimised through aircraft design and operations. To achieve this you will be using the latest suite of climate projections (CMIP5). You will also use the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model to investigate these future climates in more depth and then apply your findings to a contrail model to bring new understanding to the uncertain relationship between contrails and climate. You will collaborate with atmospheric scientists and aerospace engineers to interpret the results for industrial impact. The project will be jointly supervised between the Institute for the Environment and Brunel’s Aerospace Engineering group. Suitable candidates should have a first degree in physics, mathematics, or a closely related physical or environmental science. Applicants should apply via the NERC London DTP website: <http://london-nerc-dtp.org/how-to-apply/> The NERC DTP studentships are available to UK nationals and other EU nationals that have resided in the UK for three years prior to commencing the studentship. If you meet this criteria, funding will be provided for tuition fees and stipend. If you are a citizen of a EU member state you will eligible for a fees-only award. More information about the Institute for the Environment can be found at: <http://www.brunel.ac.uk/ife> The deadline for applications is 9.00am on Monday 17th February 2014 Informal enquiries can be made to Dr. Andrew Russell (<email@example.com>) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Dr. Andrew Russell, Programme Director: MSc in Climate Change Impacts and Sustainability, Institute for the Environment, Brunel University, Uxbridge, UB8 3PH.
