(1) ESSSR´s Cooperative Doctoral Programme on Sustainable Development Research (CDPhD-SD)
The European School of Sustainability Science and Research (ESSSR) and the Inter-University Sustainable Development Research Programme (IUSDRP) play a key role in respect of scientific publications on matters related to sustainable development. Both ESSSR and IUSDRP believe that the training of high level PhD students is one of the essential steps in fosterig the cause of sustainable development. Consistent with this thinking, ESSSR has started the “ESSSR Cooperative Doctoral Programme on Sustainable Development Research“. As the title suggests, the programme is aimed at PhD students undertaking research on sustainable development issues, who may benefit from a cooperation with ESSSR in respect of accessing some complementary training (e.g. seminars on research ethics, statistics, quantitative methods, etc) and contribute to ESSSR publications. By means of a “hands on approach”, the selected candidates will become familiar with team work and the operational aspects of scientific publishing. Participation at the “ESSSR Cooperative Doctoral Programme on Sustainable Development Research” is free of charges, but a pre-selection of candidates is undertaken. A pre-condition for selection, apart from a good command of the English language, is that candidates are already enrolled for a PhD at an accredited higher education institution.
Expression of Interests: Those who may wish to be considered for the programme should send a CV with their full contact details, along with an expression of interest to join the “ESSSR Cooperative Doctoral Programme on Sustainable Development Research” to the ESSSR team at: esssr( at )ls.haw-hamburg.de.
Please note that the deadline for applications for 2021 has passed. Please visit our page again next year when the 2022 programme opens. Upon provision of applications, further details will then be discussed with the selected candidates.
