DLGS – Dresden Leibniz Graduate School

Call for applications 2021

Glowing cities: Heat and drought in urban contexts

The Dresden Leibniz Graduate School (DLGS) offers PhD scholarships for young scientists interested in research in the field of spatial sustainability science. The deadline for applications to the call is 15th September, 2020. The program starts on 1st March 2021.

The current call topic focuses on the priority challenge of heat and drought in urban context. The graduate school is looking for research proposals that confront this high priority challenge and explore its implications theoretically and/or empirically, aiming to support novel and potentially ground breaking theoretical developments, approaches or solutions for transformative change that can limit urban drivers for heat and drought, and foster resilience to them.

The announcement is aimed at excellent graduates with a Master’s degree in any field of pertinence for studying spatial sustainability transformations, such as geography, urban and regional planning, urban studies, environmental sciences, science and technology studies, transition studies, geoinformatics, civil engineering, architecture, economics, sociology, political sciences, or anthropology, among others. Applicants must hold a Master’s degree from a recognized university and no more than three years should have been passed since the date of receiving the Master’s degree certificate, from the application deadline.

Applications must be submitted online. A detailed description of the requirements and procedure can be found on the DLGS website: www.dlgs-dresden.de
