The project described in the attached is one of three approved for a fully
funded NERC Research Studentship offered by the British Geological Survey under
its University Funding Initiative. The award will go to whichever of the three
projects attracts the best applicant. The closing date for applications is 13th

If you (or someone you know) is interested, please contact me off-list and I
will supply further information. Suitable applicants might come from a variety
of undergraduate backgrounds - the prime requirement for success will be an
ability to build necessary new skills and knowledge onto existing strengths. 

The fully funded award is open only to UK nationals and EU nationals already
resident in the UK (e.g. those that have done their undergraduate degree/Masters
in the UK or are in full-time employment here). Other EU nationals are only
eligible for a 'fees only award', i.e. they would not receive the c. £12k per
year stipend for living expenses. Persons in this position would not normally be
considered unless they can demonstrate that they have sufficient funds to
support themselves for three years. I am not sure about the eligibility of
nationals of countries outside Europe - the NERC website
( is currently unavailable - but it
will be fees-only, at best. Sorry!
