Preference will be given to students who also have a masters degree and/or postgraduate experience related to MPE. We seek to recruit students who are eager to learn and demonstrate enthusiasm to conduct research in an environment of mutual support and aspiration of scientific excellence. Due to restrictions on funding these EPSRC studentships are only open to individuals who meet UKRI eligibility conditions (see: www.ukri.org/files/legacy/publications/rcuk-training-grant-guide-pdf especially Annex 1 for further guidance). Funding Details: Starts 01/10/2019 Funding covers 3 years full tuition fees, UKRI stipend and training grant Up to four EPSRC studentships are available How to apply: To apply please submit an application for a PhD in Mathematics at: www.reading.ac.uk/graduateschool/prospectivestudents/gs-how-to-apply.aspx. *Important notes* Please quote the reference ‘GS19-054’ in the ‘Scholarships applied for’ box, which appears within the Funding Section of your on-line application. Please submit a personal statement with your application, detailing your motivation for conducting research in the area of Weather, Oceans and Climate as well as your previous experience, including potential research projects or other information you deem relevant. Please submit this personal statement when you are prompted to ”upload a research proposal’’. Application Deadline: Applications will be accepted until all the studentships are filled. Applicants are encouraged to apply as soon as possible indicating available dates for an interview. Further Enquiries: For further details, please contact Professor Valerio Lucarini at: firstname.lastname@example.org Please note that, where a candidate is successful in being awarded funding, this will be confirmed via a formal studentship award letter; this will be provided separately from any Offer of Admission and will be subject to standard checks for eligibility and other criteria.
