The Centre for Environmental and Climate Science (CEC) now announces funding for one doctoral studentship, where the doctoral student is admitted to the PhD programme in Environmental Science at the Faculty of Science, and is enrolled in the Agenda 2030 graduate school.

The Centre for Environmental and Climate Science (CEC) is responsible for the interdisciplinary PhD programme in Environmental Science at the Science Faculty at Lund University. Lund University runs a graduate school focusing on societal challenges, sustainability issues and the 2030 Agenda. The graduate school will enrol a new cohort of students in 2022, by funding one studentship at each Faculty. 

Last day to submit May 31

CEC now announces funding for one doctoral studentship, where the doctoral student is admitted to the PhD programme in Environmental Science at the Faculty of Science, and is enrolled in the Agenda 2030 graduate school. The doctoral student will be employed and have their main workplace at the main supervisor’s department. The Agenda 2030 graduate school will account for a sum equivalent to one PhD position for 4 years. The last day to submit a project proposal is Monday 2021-05-31. (Note: It is the researcher who apply for this funding, not the student.)

The applicant of the approved project will be informed at latest by 24 June 2021, and must accept or refuse instantly. The applicant must submit a complete text for an advertisement for a doctoral studentship by July 31, and be available for corrections during August. The advertisement will be published together with all positions for the graduate school on August 30. The supervisors must complete the recruitment (including time needed for working permit/equivalent) of the doctoral student in time for the student to start on 1 January 2022.

Environmental science research questions

We welcome research projects that will investigate environmental science research questions. Interest areas can lie within CEC’s research environments BECC (Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services in a Changing Climate) or MERGE (Modelling the Regional and Global Earth System), or other research fields of interest for environmental science. These include the study of chemical substances in the environment, human impact on ecosystems and climate, sustainable use of energy and natural resources including strategies, or the study of natural strategies and technologies that prevent or solve environmental problems.

The funding is not intended for students who are already admitted to PhD studies.
