BOU John & Pat Warham Studentship | 2019
For postgraduate studies of Sphenisciform and Procellariiform seabirds
We are pleased to announce that we have awarded the second John & Pat Warham Studentships to the University of Tasmania.
Fittingly, this second studentship will be on crested penguins, the same species group which formed the basis of John Warham’s own PhD studies in the 1970s.
The project will be supervised by Prof Mark Hindell and will be run in conjunction with the New Zealand Department of Conservation.
Applications are now open for Commonwealth citizens only – see here.
Deadline for applications: 15 March 2019
BOU John & Pat Warham Studentships are funded by a bequest left to the BOU by the late John and Pat Warham for the study of of Sphenisciform and Procellariiform seabirds by a students from Commonwealth countries. Four fully-funded studentships are available and it is envisaged that one studentship will be awarded per year from 2018.
