Congratulations to Dr Jonathan Clarke and Dr Alastair Smith for their successful applications to the ‘Getting Creative with Sustainability’ funding call!
The 'Getting Creative with Sustainability' funding aims to create the opportunity for local artists and creatives to work with Warwick researchers and external regional public/third sector organisations, around the broad theme of sustainability. These knowledge exchange-based collaborations will see the three parties involved sharing insights around sustainability research in its broadest sense within the context of the organisation or region. The projects will create a means for researchers, organisations, and creatives to work together via an innovative and creative collaboration, which is designed to stimulate, develop, or cement relationships between Warwick researchers and regional externals whilst supporting knowledge exchange, research development, impact, and communications.
Applications are now open for our PhD scholarships in Global Sustainable Development (GSD) for the academic year 2022/23. The Leverhulme Trust Doctoral Scholarships Programme, ‘TRANSFORM: Transformations of Human-Environment Interactions to Sustainable Development’, is led by the GSD Department in the School for Cross-faculty Studies.
Applications close at 12 pm (GMT) on Monday 7 March 2022.
We are delighted to announce that Dr Mandy Sadan, Associate Professor in GSD, has recently been awarded a highly prestigious Major Research Fellowship from the Leverhulme Trust for her project ‘Flavour in the Making of Modern Britain’. The project will begin in September 2022 and will run for three years.

A new stream of grant awards is supporting Dr Marco J Haenssgen, Assistant Professor in GSD, and his collaborators from the GSD Department, Warwick Business School, Chiang Mai University (Thailand), Monash University Indonesia, and the Université d’Antananarivo (Madagascar). The three awards have a combined total of more than £84,000.
Now in only its second year, the Warwick Climate Negotiating Forum 2021, launched in 2019 by GSD students, has been awarded £10,000 in grant funding by the Institute for Advanced Teaching and Learning at the University of Warwick.
Applications are invited for a three-and-half-year (42 months) funded PhD studentship at the University of Warwick starting in autumn 2021. The successful candidate will be based at the University’s Yesu Persaud Centre for Caribbean Studies (YPCCS) and the research can be into any aspect of the history, literature, culture or societies of the Caribbean.
Before submitting an application, candidates should identify and make contact with a potential supervisor from among the Centre's academic staff. Academic members of staff at the Centre include Professor Stéphanie Panichelli-Batalla, Head of the School for Cross-faculty Studies; and Dr Leon Sealey Huggins, Assistant Professor in GSD. You can also identify a potential co-supervisor from our list of PhD supervisors at the School for Cross-faculty Studies. Without a suitable supervisor, the candidate will not be eligible.

Congratulations to our students for securing funding for research projects over the summer!
The Undergraduate Research Support Scheme (URSS) enables undergraduate students to carry out an interdisciplinary summer research public engagement project. The scheme is open to any undergraduate student at Warwick and research can be completed in the UK or abroad.
This year, seven GSD students have successfully secured a bursary: Sara Azeem, Szebasztian Csernik-Tihn, Annabelle Early, Ari Hassan, Isaac McGirr, Virginia Thomas-Pickles and Melissa Yip. Their research projects will be presented in the form of a poster showcase at the annual URSS Celebration Research Showcase, which will take place next academic year.
