Dear Roger, Could you post this on met-jobs please, thanks Ian


NERC-funded PhD projects available in ocean, atmosphere and climate science at UEA


We are pleased to offer the following PhD projects for research training in the Centre for Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences (COAS), School of Environmental Sciences at UEA.  Please bring these PhD projects to the attention of any final year BSc or MSc students.  Full 100% support for fees, stipend and research costs is available for those eligible for NERC funding. All these projects are based primarily at UEA in Norwich.


The following projects are funded through the EnvEast Doctoral Training Programme; the deadline for applications for these projects is 6th January 2016.
