Hi everyone

There is an opportunity at Kingston University for a funded PhD which involves the creation and use of a mixed media flood database.

I have pasted the details below but also attached a PDF and a Word document, so please use whatever is easiest (the attached docs have much nicer formatting).

Can you please pass on and advertise anywhere that there may be suitable applicants. We are looking for someone with an MSc (more detail below), and competition is likely to be strong for these funded places.

PLEASE NOTE THE DEADLINE IS VERY SOON - Friday 20th of June 2014

Thanks Tracey.


Funded PhD in Flood Research

Title:  Crossing the qualitative/quantitative divide: multimedia databases in flood research

Deadline: Midnight GMT, Friday 20 June 2014 (interviews between 7th & 11th of July 2014)

There is an exciting opportunity for a funded PhD at Kingston University in London with an annual stipend of £14,400. This project will create a countrywide data portal, providing for the first time easy access to a wide range of mixed media secondary data sources. This will include Environment Agency records and reports, documents produced by local government and emergency services, media outputs (print, video and web based) as well as both quantitative and qualitative research.  A piece of place-based research using the database will both explore and illustrate the potential of the portal to enable innovative original research which combines media types and crosses the traditional quantitative/qualitative divide. The project will meet the current demand for more effective use of secondary data, enabling it to be explored in new ways by academics, policy makers, emergency services, flood practitioners, community groups and the wider public.

The applicant will ideally be a geographer with a good Honours degree and an MSc which has a significant floods/disasters element. They must have experience with both quantitative and qualitative research methods and have sufficient computer based skills to create and manage the flood database.
