CALL for IAG GRANTS for the BSG Post-Graduate Training Workshop
Windsor, UK, 9-12th December 2019
The International Association of Geomorphologists (IAG/AIG) offers 2 grants of 300 (three-hundred) Euros to PhD STUDENTS in GEOMORHOLOGY from EUROPE (except UK) who are willing to take part in the BSG Post-Graduate Training Workshop (Windsor, UK, 9-12th December 2019). PhD students at an early stage of their PhD programme are encouraged to apply. The Workshop is organised by the British Society for Geomorphology (BSG) and recognised by the International Association of Geomorphologists (IAG). The course will provide PhD students with elements of training for research and with an opportunity to meet others at an early stage of their training when they were wrestling with the problems of research design etc.
The workshop has been running at the fantastic Cumberland Lodge in Windsor Great Park for over 30 years – many notable researchers and academics have been and benefited from this course!
The content is non-technical, but provides training in project management, group work, dealing with large data sets, fieldwork, lab and numerical modelling, gaining funding as well as publication and future career development. Students will also meet a wide variety of academics and facilitators who are practicing researchers as well as the BSG postgrad representatives on the Executive. The BSG chair normally gives an entertaining evening talk.
The cost of the course is heavily subsidised for BSG postgraduate research members (non members need to join the BSG at the excellent value postgraduate rate of £45 for four years). This provides full evening meals, lunches, tea/coffee breaks (Monday afternoon to Thursday lunchtime) and accommodation in the ‘up market’ environment of Cumberland Lodge in Windsor Great Park. As well as being a former home to royalty, Cumberland lodge features in several feature films including the Kings Speech.
