The School of City and Regional Planning has been awarded six Scholarships as part of a Cardiff University scheme that aims to promote excellence and impact of research in all academic disciplines. Four of these scholarships have already been filled in 2010/11 and two are still available for 2011/12.
CPLAN will invest these highly-prestigious PhD scholarships to strengthen and expand its ongoing and internationally renowned research on Food and Sustainable City-Regions.
We are seeking high-quality applicants (starting from October 2011) to build a new research community around one cutting-edge research question: what is the role of different actors, governance levels, spatial scales and pro-poor planning strategies in reconnecting cities (physically, economically and socially) with their surrounding countryside? To address this question, we have designed two interrelated PhD projects around the following themes:
- Sustainable rural-urban linkages: the role of bamboo in China
- Addressing food in spatial planning systems: a comparative study.
Application Deadline: Friday 4th March 2011.
More details of these Scholarships, including eligibility criteria and how to apply, are available from Cardiff University President's Research Scholarships: Food and Sustainable City-Regions webpage.
