EPSRC PhD Opportunity - Virtual labs for accountability in land use decision making around solar parks

We are looking for an enthusiastic and determined student who wishes to work with us on this topical, timely and important project with a minimum of a UK Honours Degree at 2:1 level in a related subject. This is fundamentally a cross-disciplinary project involving elements of environmental science, computational/data science and social science. We do not anticipate that the candidate will have expertise in all three areas but seek someone who is interested in the overarching purpose of the project and has the desire to straddle disciplinary boundaries. The appointed student will drive the project forward from their expertise, developing new knowledge in skills in the other areas. Full training will be provided in the areas with which the student is unfamiliar. They will be supported by three experienced supervisors with track records of cross-disciplinary working and active research groups that will provide peer support.

Interested applicants are strongly advised to get in touch to learn more about the PhD project. Please contact Dr Alona Armstrong (environment),; Dr Bran Knowles (social science); or Prof Gordon Blair (computing), for more information. Further information about the project and how to apply can be found here. Closing date is Monday 14th June.
