Closing date: 16:00 on 8 December 2009
Proposals are invited for studentships as part of the UK Ocean Acidification Research Programme. This £12m collaborative programme is a Living With Environmental Change (LWEC) accredited programme and is co-funded by NERC, the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (Defra) and the Department of Energy & Climate Change (DECC).
This integrated strategic programme directly relates to the delivery of the NERC strategy (Earth System Science and Biodiversity science themes) and the UK government's Strategic Objectives with respect to adapting to, and mitigating, climate change and ensuring a healthy resilient, productive and diverse natural environment.
