The Forest Edge Doctoral Scholarships programme will offer 20 Leverhulme Doctoral Scholarships at the University of Birmingham from 2018 to 2020. It will act as a bridge between Birmingham-led CENTA2 and the ENVISION DTP, providing coherent doctoral training for forest science in the UK for the first time. Please refer to the Forest Edge website (View Website) for information about eligibility requirements and selection process. Successful applicants are expected to start their research project from October 2020.
