PhD opportunity: Political ecology/ environmental justice approach to an environmental resource governance issue in the global South

Cattle India

The Department of Food and Resource Economics at the University of Copenhagen and the School of International Development at the University of East Anglia (UEA) advertise one 3-year PhD scholarships/Postgraduate Research Studentships looking at the relationship between resources and politics. The deadline for applications is 20th June 2018.

We invite project proposals that adopt a political ecology and/or environmental justice approach to researching an environmental resource governance issue in the global South.

We expect proposals to contain plans for original empirical research involving a significant element of fieldwork-based data collection. Proposals may focus on a range of different resource sectors, such as forestry, mining, water or agriculture. They might address one of the following themes: local politics, property including resource tenure and rights, commodification, environmental conflict, citizenship, governance and justice. We expect applicants to have a background in the fields of human geography, anthropology, political science, development studies or a closely related discipline.

The successful candidate will be co-supervised by staff at the Department of Food and Resource Economics at the University of Copenhagen and the School of International Development at the University of East Anglia. Successful completion of the research will lead to the award of PhD degrees by both institutions. The studentship holders will be expected to share their time between the two universities, spending a minimum of 18 months at UEA.

More details available.
