We are now accepting applications for our newly created Critical Decade for Climate Change Leverhulme Doctoral Scholars PhD programme, directed by Professor Corinne Le Quéré and Deputy Director Dr Mark Tebboth at the University of East Anglia <https://www.uea.ac.uk/climate/show-and-tell>.
Tackling climate change transcends disciplinary boundaries, through this programme we will support our researchers to become leaders in generating and interpreting climate-relevant real-world data and understanding trends and drivers of change in our environment, while integrating agile use of new observations with storytelling and narratives that capture human dimensions in its richest form. The advertised projects cover a wide range of topics with supervisory teams involving a great mix of people and perspectives from archeologists and creative writers to climate scientists and development scholars. All projects involve supervisor from more than one discipline.
Commencing in October 2021, we will recruit three cohorts of doctoral researchers who will train within the ClimateUEA interdisciplinary community, which brings together experts in climate research from our four Faculties (Science, Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities, and Medicine and Health).
Four-year studentships will provide funding including a maintenance stipend, tuition fees and a research and training grant (see Funding Conditions).
Project details can be found here <https://www.uea.ac.uk/climate/show-and-tell/leverhulme-doctoral-scholars-applicant-information>, the deadline for applications is the 15th April 2021. Please do circulate widely and forward onto any interested candidates.
