Climate Change Mitigations with IoT Techniques
Applications are invited for our EPSRC funded Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) PhD studentships that will support six (6) research projects starting 1 October 2022. One of these projects is “Climate Change Mitigations with IoT Techniques” led by Dr Take Itagaki in the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering
Successful applicants will receive an annual stipend of £18,062 including outer London allowance plus payment of their full-time tuition fees for a period of 42 months (3.5 years).
You should be eligible for home (UK) tuition fees but there is a limited number of studentships (no more than two) available to overseas applicants, including EU nationals, who meet the entry criteria.
IoT Techniques can be applied for many fields, including Disaster Prediction and Prevention, and Climate Change Mitigations. In developing countries, it may be economically infeasible to purchase and establish a traditional measurement system. With a help of IoT and other IT based methodologies, a prediction/notification system could be established with less economical burdens. For this PhD, the student is expected to design such a system and perform simulations to establish a proof of concept.
Please contact Dr Take Itagaki at email@example.com to find out more.
You will have or will receive an undergraduate degree classified at 1st class or 2:1 (honours) in an engineering, or physical sciences related subject. A postgraduate masters degree may be an advantage. Where appropriate, applicants must have English language proficiency to an overall score of IELTS 6.5 or equivalent.
