The Durham Arctic Research Centre for Training and Interdisciplinary Collaboration (DurhamARCTIC) is an interdisciplinary doctoral training initiative funded by a £1.05 million grant from the Leverhulme Trust, with additional funds from Durham University. Between 2018 and 2023, the programme is funding 15 PhD students. Although students receive degrees in conventional disciplines, the programme provides additional, interdisciplinary training, as well as supplementary funding for fieldwork, placements, etc.
Potential PhD students interested in the programme can find application materials here.
