Cryosphere PhD opportunities at the University of Edinburgh

Donald Slater
Dear Colleagues,

Please find below a number of fully-funded PhD projects offered by the Cryosphere Group (https://www.ed.ac.uk/geosciences/research/global-change/cryosphere/) and friends within the School of GeoSciences at the University of Edinburgh.

These studentships are available through the NERC-funded Edinburgh Earth, Ecology and Environment Doctoral Training Partnership (E4 DTP) and the NERC and UK Space Agency-funded Satellite Data in Environmental Science Centre for Doctoral Training (SENSE CDT). More details on these schemes, including eligibility and instructions on how to apply, can be found at https://www.ed.ac.uk/e4-dtp and https://eo-cdt.org respectively. If you are interested in a particular project, we encourage you to contact the primary supervisor.

Please note the application deadline of 7 January 2021 at noon for E4 DTP projects and 10 January 2021 for SENSE CDT projects.
