An opportunity has become available to apply for a PhD scholarship jointly held with the University of Queensland, Australia and the University of Exeter, UK.

We are looking for a candidate with a strong academic background and track record, with an interest in pursuing historical marine ecology research. If successful, the candidate’s home institution will be the University of Queensland, but they will spend time at both UQ and the University of Exeter (Falmouth campus) and will receive a joint degree from the two institutions. PhDs will be awarded on a competitive basis and candidates need to complete an expression of interest form on the below website by 11th September 2017 (note the short turnaround).

Further information on the application process can be found at https://global-engagement.uq.edu.au/quex. Successful candidates will receive a living stipend, tuition fees, and funds for travel and training.
