PhD position available at the University of York (UK)

David Rippin

A fully-funded NERC studentship is available for Home/EU students within the Environment Department, University of York to commence doctoral study in 2012/2013.  Although other (non-glacial) topics are also on offer, one of the topics is entitled: ‘Using surface roughness to explore patterns of palaeo-fast glacier flow in deglaciated terrain’ under the primary supervision of Dr David Rippin.


The NERC Studentship will be tenable for three and a half (3.5) years and will provide a maintenance grant set at the UK Research Council's national rate, full payment of their tuition fees, and a research training support grant of around £1,000 per annum to support fieldwork and attendance at conferences.  We are seeking candidates who possess a first or 2:1 undergraduate degree, or have relevant comparable experience and who will usually hold or be completing a Masters degree in their specialism.  


For further information and a more detailed project outline, please contact David Rippin by email at: [hidden email]


To apply for the Studentship you will need to apply directly to David Rippin by April 30 2012 enclosing a 2 page covering letter detailing why you wish to apply for the studentship and your relevant experience, as well as a Curriculum Vitae including two referees.  Interviews for the position will be held in May 2012.


Candidates must be an UK/EU resident to hold a NERC studentship, and EU students who have not been resident in the UK for the last three years before the start of their studentship are only eligible for a fees-only award.
