ClimateUEA PhD Studentships

We are generating a new cohort of 21st Century climate thought leaders with the agile and interdisciplinary skills needed to lead a paradigm shift in the response to climate change.

The Critical Decade for Climate Change Leverhulme Doctoral Scholars programme will train researchers to look at real-world data in near real-time to generate unique insights into why societies succeed or fail to respond to the threat of climate change.
This new generation of scholars will help build the foundations for a healthy planet and a fair society for the future.
