Call for Applications: Leverhulme Trust, U.K funding 15 PhD projects covering a broad theme 'Climate and Culture' at Sundraban 

---------- Forwarded message ----------
Dear Colleagues,

As you are aware that the Sundraban delta has taken the centrestage in global environmental debates on Climate Change and tropical cyclones, given its status as  UNESCO World Heritage Site and tiger reserve. 

The Leverhulme Trust, U.K has pledged to fund 15 PhD projects covering a broad theme 'Climate and Culture' and expects inter-disciplinary participation of researchers who could test the frontiers of knowledge across disciplines while critically engaging with the existing theories and discourses on climate change. Please circulate the draft note attached to prospective M.A./MSc. and M.Phil researchers who are interested to work in the region. Applicants will design a research proposal around the theme 'Climate and Culture' in the Sundarban- Bay of Bengal Delta. 

All prospective applicants can contact me at das.birkbeck[at]gmail.com with their proposals and C.V. The PhD programme is generously funded by the Leverhulme Trust. The competition is global. Working knowledge of Bengali dialects will be a added advantage.

With regards

Dr Debojyoti Das
Department of History, Classics and Archaeology
Room 314, 27 Russell Square
