The University of Exeter would like to name a programme of Doctoral Scholarships to take forward the pioneering work of James Lovelock and further develop aspects of his Gaia theory.
The Lovelock PhD Scholarship programme will be funded by the University of Exeter and we are looking to match this with philanthropic donations. The programme will provide an opportunity for postgraduate researchers to join the Global Systems Institute Team, led by Professor Tim Lenton, to contribute towards some of the latest research in systems thinking while developing their own research career. Each PhD studentship will have a different research focus enabling leading experts from the Global Systems Institute community to supervise the next generation of researchers.
The Global Systems Institute research community is underpinned by PhD students who drive innovation, foster collaboration and deliver impact in some of the biggest global challenges we face. The Lovelock PhD Scholarship programme will enable us to attract the most talented prospective research students who would otherwise miss the opportunity to work within this growing team.
The University of Exeter will support your donation 2:1, meaning that if you choose to contribute £100, the University will top up an additional £50. If eligible, your donation could also be worth even more to the scholarship programme thanks to Gift Aid.
Please join us in honouring James Lovelock - all gifts, of every size are very much appreciated and collectively can be transformational.
