Join a world-leading, cross-continental research team

The University of Exeter and the University of Queensland are seeking exceptional students to join a world-leading, cross-continental research team tackling major challenges facing the world’s population in global sustainability and wellbeing as part of the QUEX Institute. The joint PhD programme provides a fantastic opportunity for the most talented doctoral students to work closely with world-class research groups and benefit from the combined expertise and facilities offered at the two institutions, with a lead supervisor within each university. This prestigious programme provides full tuition fees, stipend, travel funds and research training support grants to the successful applicants.  The studentship provides funding for up to 42 months (3.5 years).

Eight generous, fully-funded studentships are available for the best applicants, four offered by the University of Exeter and four by the University of Queensland.

THEME - Global Environmental Futures

Project Description

Arid, semi-arid and hyper-arid regions cover around 25% of the earth surface, and are characterised by lack of available water, extremely high evapotranspirative gradients and sparse or ephemeral surface water bodies. Climate change threatens to dramatically expand arid areas, whereby 30% of the earth could become at least semi-arid by 2100, severely impacting available water resources for more than 1 billion people. This will have devastating consequences such as loss of vegetation and major shifts in biodiversity, causing reduced agricultural production, soil degradation, ecosystem changes, all of which will drive outward migration from an increasingly larger land mass. Therefore, it is imperative to find solutions for adaptation and to restore the availability of water resources in drylands globally.
