PhD - Impact of Climate Change on the Deterioration of Historic Infrastructure, University of Leeds
Historic structures are affected by different degradation mechanisms that are significantly affected by environmental conditions. As climate change is modifying these conditions, it is necessary to further examine how deterioration processes such as those derived from biological colonisation, exfoliation, salt crystallisation and freeze-thaw action are being altered by changes in humidity and temperature trends. This project is aimed at studying how long-term wetness is affecting historic buildings and bridges. The evolution of the deterioration processes will be analysed and modelled to account for climate projections in order to provide revised strategies for appropriate intervention. 

Entry requirements: Applicants must have a minimum of a UK upper second class honours degree (2.1), or equivalent, in an appropriate discipline.
If English is not the applicant’s first language, they must provide evidence that they meet the University’s minimum English Language requirements.
Main contact: Contact Dr Emilio Garcia-Taengua to discuss this project further informally.
Application deadline: Friday 15 January 2016
