New studentship opportunity in The Social Science of Coasts

Tuesday 29 April 2014

A new PhD studentship opportunity in Geography & Sustainable Development is now available.

PhD in The Social Science of Coasts: Characterising Coastal Communities for Demographic Analysis

Supervisors: Dr T. A. Stojanovic & Professor A. Findlay

Funding Status: Three year fully funded competitive studentship

This three year fully funded studentship will research how Scotland’s coastal communities are responding to changes in population and the economy. Coastal settlements play unique roles as retirement towns, seaside resorts or seaports, but approaches to socio-demographic analysis and overall patterns of change are not well understood for coasts.  The research will be conducted in partnership with the Analytical Unit of Marine Scotland.
