The Durham Arctic Research Centre for Training and Interdisciplinary Collaboration (DurhamARCTIC) will fund 15 doctoral students pursuing degrees on Arctic-related topics.
Durham University has received a grant from the Leverhulme Trust to fund 15 doctoral students whose research will focus on Interdisciplinary Understanding for a Changing Arctic.
- Students may pursue their degree in any discipline, but the proposed project should have an interdisciplinary component as well.
- DurhamARCTIC students enrol at Durham in three cohorts of five students each, with intakes in Autumn 2018, 2019, and 2020.
- In addition to providing fee waivers, a maintenance stipend at the standard Research Council UK rate, and financial support for research and conference attendance, DurhamARCTIC provides a number of opportunities for interdisciplinary education including colloquia, summer schools, and an integrated residential community for programme students.
