Dear Cryolist,

We are offering 16 cryosphere-related PhD projects as part of the NERC-funded 'IAPETUS' Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP), which links the Universities of Durham, Glasgow, Newcastle, St. Andrews and Stirling with British Geological Survey and the Center for Ecology and Hydrology. All projects are to start in October 2016 and the application deadline is 22nd Jan 2016. Project titles are provided below and further information on individual projects, the application procedure and the broader IAPETUS DTP are available at www.iapetus.ac.uk.
