Your postgraduate student application needs to specify clearly that you wish to be considered for an IAPETUS2 studentship and state the research project (s) that you wish to be considered for, quoting the relevant IAPETUS2 project references where possible. Although prospective students are encouraged to explore opportunities across the partnership, they may only finally be considered for an IAPETUS2 studentship for one project. After 8th January 2021, any prospective student who has made an application for more than one IAPETUS2 project will be contacted by email and asked to confirm which one of the projects they wish to be considered for.
Prospective students must complete the nomination form (link here). Your complete application to the awarding institution (University of the lead supervisor, or University of the second supervisor for projects led by BAS, BGS or UKCEH) should include the following documentation/information:
- Nomination form with sections 1, 3 and 4 completed.
- Current CV (no more than two pages).
- Names of two referees (check with the University advice about contacting them in advance).
- Full transcripts of previous qualifications obtained to date.
Please do not send the nomination form to supervisors in advance, unless specifically requested to do so.
Each Host Organization will nominate a number of applicants to go forward to interview. The nominees must be prepared to be interviewed on 16th February 2021. Interviews will be held on Zoom.
All successful applicants will be required to apply to the Postgraduate Certificate in Environmental Methods, which is an integral part of the IAPETUS2 training programme. More details will be supplied when offers are made.
