The CECHR graduate student community (PhDs and Masters) defines the spirit and ethos of the CECHR initiative. This is evident in the fantastic breadth of subjects involved and the range of innovative approaches being used used to tackle the world's unprecedented challenges in terms of food, health, water, energy and environmental security. Individually and collectively CECHR_Grads provide a hub integrating the scientific, social science, policy and legal expertise in the University of Dundee and the James Hutton Institute.
Facing the Future is an annual two-day postgraduate conference for Masters, PhD and early career researchers from the sciences, social sciences, and humanities, organised through the Centre for Environmental Change and Human Resilience (CECHR) at the University of Dundee and James Hutton Institute, in collaboration with the University of Aberdeen.
Funding for PhDs comes from a variety of sources, such as UK Research Councils, UK and overseas governments, collaborative programmes such as the Scottish Food Security Alliance and a myriad of other combinations. We advertise fully funded-places as available, but welcome approaches from any candidate with independent means of support or the appetite to secure the necessary funding through grant applications.
