Extinction Studies Doctoral Training Programme


Extinction is one of the great challenges of our times. As part of a new doctoral training programme, hosted at the University of Leeds, we are offering full funding and an exciting interdisciplinary training programme for PhD students to work on topics relating to extinction and its meanings, histories and legacies. Working both individually and collaboratively, students will have the opportunity to explore the rich connections between the biological, cultural and social meanings of the global extinction crisis, and to clarify the responses and impacts that extinction is currently having upon societies and cultures across the world.

The programme will take in six to seven doctoral researchers a year over each of its three years, with the first intake in October 2021.
