Three fully funded PhD studentships, led by academics from CESER, are available in topics that address water and climate engineering:
1. Vulnerability of shallow groundwater and surface water resources used for irrigation in rural communities in Sub-Saharan Africa to climate variability and change.
2. Will catchment scale afforestation for mitigating flooding significantly reduce water resource availability and productive farmland?
Each Doctoral Training Award is for £20,000 per annum. This award is sufficient to cover home(UK)/EU fees and a contribution to an annual stipend (living expenses). Applications from outside the EU are welcome but must note the stipend will be reduced according to the difference in tuition fees. Applications will be considered as they are received, until 18th August 2014 or sooner if the awards are made before this date. Applicants must be able to start the PhD in September.
