Applications invited for PhD Studentship: ADVENT (ADdressing Valuation of Energy & Nature Together)

Applications are invited for a 3 year NERC PhD Studentship linked to the project ‘ADVENT (ADdressing Valuation of Energy and Nature Together)’.

Department:

University of Aberdeen - Environmental & Biological Sciences/ The Centre for Transport Research

Supervisors:

Dr Astley Hastings & Professor Jillian Anable

Closing Date:

Friday 31st July 2015

Eligibility:

Only open to UK nationals (or EU students who have been resident in the UK for at least three years immediately prior to the programme start date) due to restrictions imposed by the funding body.

The Topic:

One of the technologies proposed to reduce carbon emissions from energy consumption is the electrification of transportation.  The widespread adoption of transport  electrification will impact natural capital from the additional power generation required, the infrastructure to electrify rail networks, the charging infrastructure for road vehicles, the manufacture and use of new road and rail vehicles and the disposal and recycling of the older more carbon intensive equipment. This PhD project aims to quantify the value of the impacts on Natural Capital of the transport electrification levels proposed by the four low carbon energy pathways proposed in the fourth CCC report CCC report.

Application Process:
