Members of the PED Group would welcome applications from potential Ph.D. students in fields close to their own research, and to the work of existing Ph.D. students.
Those interested should send a 300-600 word summary of their ideas for research to ONE of the staff in the group in the first instance.
Those contemplating a Ph.D. are invited to consider the 'Environment and Development' route through the Department of Geography's M. Phil. in Geographical Research.
