Record number of ESRC research studentships shared by UCL Geography

UCL’s Doctoral Training Centre has been awarded 18 of the 43 UK multidisciplinary research studentships offered by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) in 2013, worth an estimated £1.6 million.

The studentships will be held in departments linked to the UCL ESRC Doctoral Training Centre pathways, covering research themes including population health, public policy and natural resource management.

The funded research studentship themes involving Geography are:

Natural Disasters and Development and Legal and Policy frameworks for Natural Resource Management (4 studentships under a multidisciplinary ESRC/NERC initiative)

Economic and Social Aspects of Urban Sustainability and Resilience in Retailing (5 studentships under a multidisciplinary ESRC/EPSRC initiative)

The Geography leads on these bids were Professors Mark Maslin (NERC) and  Paul Longley. Each 4-year studentship will be supervised by one or more ESRC disciplinary supervisor and one or more from a NERC/ AHRC/ MRC/ EPSRC perspective.
