The Scottish Alliance scholarships offers international students the opportunity to pursue a PhD degree program in the field of Geography, Environmental Science, Natural Resource Management, Agriculture, Engineering, Computing, Social Sciences, Law or Planning.
SAGES pools world-leading expertise in geoscience and environmental science from across Scotland’s research base, creating an multi-disciplinary alliance at the forefront of earth and environmental research.
The PhD will focus on how to plan and manage future landscapes, so as to equitably deliver multiple benefits to society. To do so, it aims to develop a conceptual model and decision-support tool for planners / land managers to visualise and classify multiple ecosystem service benefits (as ‘bundles’) at the landscape scale; relate these bundles to bio-physical characteristics; and, through the use of co-developed scenarios, inform consequences of land management and environmental change – thus challenging the dominant sectoral approach to land use policy and practice.
