Our aviation research is internationally recognised and covers diverse topics such as emissions measurements and modelling, global climate impacts modelling, airport assessments (air quality, noise, environmental capacity, carbon management), sustainable aviation fuels, and climate change adaptation strategies.

The RA will have access to modern and well-equipped teaching and research facilities in the new Faculty of Science and Engineering building. In addition, the post holder will work alongside our aviation experts, and HOPE partners from the Netherlands, Sweden, Germany, and Italy.
