Providing client services for air quality
3 Year Enterprise-led Funded Phd: Ref. No. CGE 9
Poor air quality is a global threat to human and ecosystem health, and climate change is projected to exacerbate air quality problems through meteorological changes. Many air quality pollutants may also contribute to climate change themselves, making this a problem with potential win-win solutions for climate and health.
In this doctoral research project you will work with climate scientists and the JBA Trust, developing new methods and tools to communicate climate change and air quality risk to national/international stakeholders. You will need a good first degree in a natural sciences discipline, commercial awareness and a willingness to develop scientific computing skills.
This doctoral research project will be supervised by Lancaster University and JBA Trust. The JBA Trust was created in 2011 as an independent charity that supports research and promotes the growth of knowledge and skills in environmental risk management, especially in the water environment. The Trust works with leading academic researchers, NGOs, charities and the JBA Group of companies providing greater understanding of water management and in the flood risk management community.
The Trust has supported opportunities through placements and internships and post-graduate opportunities through provision of technical expertise and financial bursaries for MSc and PhD researchers. The Trust works to help with knowledge exchange, sharing best practice and providing understanding and resources for relevant professions.
