3 MSc (by research) positions available at Abertay University and University of Dundee

Centre of Tay-GENE (Tayside Centre for Geotechnical Engineering in Natural Environments), a joint initiative between Abertay University (AU) and University of Dundee (UoD), is currently looking for three 12-month MSc (by research) positions to study the negative impacts caused by climate change on managed non-urban land, particularly for sloping ground, and to develop novel adaption strategies. Each position provides a stipend of £14,057 and tuition fees paid up to £4,036 to fully cover the tuition fees for students for Home/EU applicants.
