Project Description

About the Project
This research project will build on a series of interdisciplinary workshops and lectures that have taken place at the University of Bristol over the past two years on the theme of ‘Changing Ice.’ The research student will work with staff members engaged in interdisciplinary research projects in the Arctic and Antarctica. There is quite a wide scope for shaping this project, but the main goal will be to highlight the benefits of combining research in the social sciences or humanities with research in environmental science.

Why Choose this Opportunity
You will have the opportunity to work closely with two or more staff members at the University of Bristol working on research projects connected to the polar regions. This project will involve putting into practice an interdisciplinary approach to the study of environmental change, especially as it connects to the cryosphere.

About the programme
The Cabot Institute Masters by Research is a unique opportunity to work with a leading supervisor to deliver a one-year research project that you are passionate about. The programme will bring together exceptional students from all backgrounds with a common mission – protecting the planet and securing our future. As well as learning from your supervisor, you will learn from your fellow students; coming together to share your ideas and developing your problem-solving skills as part of an interdisciplinary team over the year. As well as being hosted within the Cabot Institute you will have a direct relationship within the relevant School for your research area, allowing you to fully take advantage of a wide-ranging research community.
Alongside your research project, you will benefit from a unique personal development and transferable skills training schedule. These unaccredited, optional events will give you the opportunity to come together with your peers to improve your research skills and develop an innovative approach to the global challenges we face today. You will also be encouraged to propose your own interests for a seminar series, giving you a unique platform to mould your studies and get involved directly with the programme. The training schedule will focus on:
• Interdisciplinarity & Collaboration
• Innovation & Enterprise
• Making your research a success
• Research communications
• Ignite your interests (your chance to propose ideas for a seminar series)
You will also gain access to the Cabot Institute’s network of experts across academia, government, business and industry via networking events. These opportunities will not only support your research, but give you the edge in your future career, whatever that may be.
