SNH/MASTS - Call for PhD proposals from supervisors
MASTS in conjunction with Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) invites PhD supervisors to submit proposals for two 50% funded studentships in a number of priority areas. Find out more here.
A completed application form should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org before 16.00 on Thursday 29th March 2018. Enquiries should also be directed to this email address. Supervisors should not contact colleagues in SNH as endorsement is not required at this stage.
Datalab/MASTS Industrial Doctorate Call
MASTS, in conjunction with the Data Lab, has opened a call for “Data for Marine Science & Technology - Industrial Doctorate Funding”. The deadline for submissions is 17.00 on Friday 6th April.
Funding for up to 50% of the project cost will be provided for up to three and a half years, with the remainder to be matched by an industry, sector or voluntary sector partner. We are currently looking for applications from academic supervisors who have a proposed project with an agreed industry partner, or who are actively engaged with a partner to define a project.
MASTS aims to enhance the Scottish marine research environment. We hope that by applying novel data science methods to the challenges outlined in MASTS’ key research themes, valuable new insights can be gained for the benefit of Scotland.
We look forward to receiving your applications. Only available to supervisors at MASTS member institutions.
