We welcome enquiries from potential Postdoctoral Researchers, Research Assistants and those seeking to undertake Doctoral (PhD) or Masters (MSc) research across the broad and interdisciplinary arena of Cryosphere and Climate Change research.

Typically, there are two routes to obtaining a funded position:

  1. Applying for a pre-funded research position / degree programme.

    When funded positions are available, they will be posted on this page. Typically, funded studentships to start in October will be advertised between February and May, although there can be exceptions to this timescale. We encourage prospective applicants to contact us, any time, for up-to-date information on potential projects and project-specific funding opportunities.

  2. Applicant generates his/her own funding for research position / programme.

    We always welcome enquiries from prospective postdocs and graduate students interested in developing new projects within the remit of Cryosphere and Climate Change research. Organisations which offer funding possibilities include: Natural Environment Research Council (NERC); University of Aberdeen College of Physical Sciences; Leverhulme Trust; Royal Society (of London); Royal Society of Edinburgh; Carnegie Trust for the Universities of Scotland.

If you are interested in joining our group, we recommend you check out some of these funding possibilities, take a look around our Projects and People pages, and then contact us to discuss matters further.
