Project Description

Up to 5 Leverhulme Trust Doctoral Scholarships in Extinction Studies are available for Home fee-rated students for Session 2023/24 for study in the following Faculties: Arts, Humanities and Cultures; Biological Sciences; Environment; Social Sciences. There will also be one University of Leeds funded scholarship in Extinction Studies funded by the Faculty of Social Sciences. The Scholarships are ONLY for Home rated fee students. International fee paying students are not eligible to apply.

Extinction is one of the great challenges of our times. As part of a doctoral training programme, hosted at the University of Leeds, we are offering full funding and an exciting interdisciplinary training programme for PhD students to work on topics relating to extinction and its meanings, histories and legacies. Working both individually and collaboratively, students will have the opportunity to explore the rich connections between the biological, cultural and social meanings of the global extinction crisis, and to clarify the responses and impacts that extinction is currently having upon societies and cultures across the world.
