Applicants interested in working with Boots, EasyJet, the Local Data Company or Transport for West Midlands should consult for further details and direct enquiries to the Consumer Data Research Centre at


There are also opportunities for joint studentships with the NERC DTP in areas of Geography at the social science/natural science interface. Please contact Dr Alan Ingram ( if you are interested in exploring this possibility.
