economic implications | Scholarship for Nigerians and Africans

2011-2012 PhD Studentships in Climate Change and Global Economy, UK

The full-time studentship, which includes an element of teaching, will be for 3 years, subject to satisfactory progress. Starting bursary will be £20,000 pa plus student fees. The global economic implications of climate change are major sources of concern and the subject of an increasing body of research. The objective of this studentship is to further this research by using a global computable general equilibrium (CGE) model that has been calibrated using data primarily drawn from the Global Trade Analysis Project’s database (see McDonald et al., 2007, for documentation of the GLOBE model*) to explore some aspect of the global economic implications of climate change and/or possible mitigation strategies. The precise topic, within the broad subject area, will be determined by the research proposal of the successful candidate and the first year’s research. While we would welcome applicants with research interests in:
1.    Economic and environmental implications of growth in China and/or India
2.    Economic implications of climate change for least developed countries
3.    Carbon trading and economic welfare
The successful applicant will be the candidate with the best research proposal within the broad subject area.
