Fully-funded PhD Studentship for UK/EU Students
King’s College London, Department of Geography

One fully-funded NERC PhD studentship is available for new 3-year Doctoral Research projects in Earth and Environmental Sciences starting September 2012. Funding covers all tuition fees, a tax-free stipend of approximately £15,590 pa (including London Allowance), and a research support budget of approximately £9,000.

We are looking for motivated students with quantitative skills and a strong interest in Earth Sciences, with MSc-degree level training in a relevant discipline.
Projects are available within the following general thematic areas:
  • Surface-Atmosphere Interactions and Fluxes
  • Eco-Hydrology, River Management, and Bio-Geomorphology
  • Natural Hazards and Environmental Management
  • Sediment Dynamics and Stratigraphy
A full list of suggested projects and further details is available here: http://www.kcl.ac.uk/sspp/departments/geography/study/phD/NERC.aspx

Interested applicants are strongly urged to contact the principal supervisor on a project first for informal discussion and development. Final selection for the studentship will be based on the best partnering of applicant and project.

Students will be joining the vibrant Environmental Monitoring and Modelling Research Group, based in the very heart of London on the College's Strand Campus. The Department of Geography at King's is among the very best internationally, as confirmed by the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise. With more than 50 academic and research staff, 350 undergraduates, 350 Masters students and over 100 PhD students, we are a large department with an annual research income of more than £1 million. Despite our size, we pride ourselves on providing a friendly and supportive environment for research and study.
