The UCL Institute for Risk and Disaster Reduction (IRDR) research fellowship and studentship programme is designed to pump prime research in the Institute and to foster new and innovative collaborations within UCL and between UCL and external partners. This will be a rolling programme as funds become available to the IRDR.
IRDR research fellowships
Two new IRDR research fellows were appointed in 2012. The IRDR funding call for research fellowships is now closed. However, we encourage IRDR members apply to research councils and other funding bodies for projects linked to risk and disaster reduction, for example the NERC theme on natural hazards, and to discuss their proposals with the IRDR. Please contact Rosanna Smith (email@example.com) to discuss how IRDR could support your applications.
IRDR research studentships
There is no open call for full research studentships at present. However, we are keen to hear from IRDR members who are interested in pursuing CASE awards through the IRDR or partial funding for interdisciplinary PhDs. Please contact Rosanna Smith (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information and complete a proposal form if you are seeking funding. Proposals must demonstrate the relevance of the proposed research to IRDR research themes and to national and international developments in the field of risk and disaster reduction.
Proposals should fill no more than three pages at 10 point font or larger.
There is no specific deadline for submission and proposals will be considered on a rolling basis. Further details can be obtained from Rosanna Smith (email@example.com)
The IRDR has a small allocation for travel funds, principally for fieldwork, for seed-corn funding for small projects and for supporting academic visitors. Funding will usually be awarded on a 50/50 basis. Priority will be given to IRDR research fellows and research students.
Applications will only be accepted from IRDR members.
