Climate Change in Malawi Phd Studentship at Leeds

Climate Research Doctoral Training Programme

The Priestley Centre is launching its Climate Research Doctoral Training Programme with a suite of fully-funded PhD studentship opportunities. The projects provide an excellent opportunity to undertake ground-breaking research aimed towards delivering global climate solutions. Successful applicants will become part of internationally leading research teams that work across disciplinary boundaries and are committed to training a new generation of climate researchers.

The studentships are for study commencing in October 2016 and are available via the Leeds Anniversary Research Scholarships (LARS) scheme. The awards are for full-time study and provide academic fees at the University of Leeds and a maintenance grant. The deadline is 11th March 2016.
