Plymouth Marine Laboratory (PML) is launching a new fellowship in memory of our late friend and colleague Professor Trevor Platt FRS.

We are seeking applications from outstanding early career researchers to undertake a research project at PML in any aspect of biological oceanography (fieldwork, earth observations, theoretical, ocean stewardship etc..), following on the legacy of Trevor Platt.

The fellowship will provide a bursary of £15k to include travel, visa, accommodation and living expenses. The aim is to allow a visit of between four to six months depending on distance, living costs and science activity. It is expected the fellowship will start in summer 2023 (June/July).

The scholarships will support post-graduate students from developing countries, for research that advances the understanding of the scientific basis of risk of human-induced climate change, its potential impacts, and options for adaptation and mitigation.

The scholarship provides a four-year fully-funded studentship which covers the course fee, and a tax-free stipend equal to the UKRI minimum stipend, which is £17,668 in 2022-23. There will be an increase each year. In addition there is a research and training support grant of £8000 to help cover the cost of lab consumables, fieldwork, training courses, travel and costs associated with conferences, etc.
