2019 DurhamARCTIC 'Summer School'

The interdisciplinary PhD programme organised by DurhamARCTIC (the Durham Arctic Research Centre for Training and Interdisciplinary Collaboration) will be holding its first annual ‘Summer School’ 25-28 April 2019, in Durham, England.

The Summer School will be held in conjunction with the final conference of the ICE LAW Project (the Project on Indeterminate and Changing Environments: Law, the Anthropocene, and the World), a research network that, for the past three years, has been holding workshops and meetings investigating the potential for a legal framework that acknowledges the complex geophysical environment in the world’s frozen regions.

Support for Early Career Researchers

In addition to supporting students presently enrolled in Durham’s Arctic initiative, DurhamARCTIC will fund attendance by 14 Early Career Researchers from outside Durham. Funding will include:

  • Three night’s accommodation, double occupancy, at Durham’s Hotel Indigo (nights of 25th, 26th, and 27th April)
  • Some meals (some will be provided to all conference attendees, including Summer School participants, while others will be on your own)
  • Travel bursaries of up to £150 for students coming from within the UK, £300 for students coming from elsewhere in the EU/EEA area, and £500 from students coming from outside the EU/EEA area.

For this event, an Early Career Researcher is defined as an individual pursuing a PhD or who has received their PhD in the past three years.
