Opportunities for PhD Project

 

The Sustainability and Climate Change Programme (SCCP) is a post-graduate applied research initiative recently launched at Université des Mascareignes. Although it applies a transdisciplinary research perspective, it is housed in the Faculty of Sustainable Development and Engineering for administrative purposes. The SCCP applies a systemic approach to investigating sustainability and climate change issues that are of foremost importance to Mauritius and Small Island Developing States (SIDS) in general. The SCCP is proposing a wide range of thematic areas for doctoral projects.

While a list of research topics is proposed for the different thematic areas*, prospective researchers are encouraged to propose novel research ideas. All research will use novel approaches and advanced modeling tools and techniques while adopting systemic and transdisciplinary approaches. Both qualitative and quantitative approaches will be promoted.

Thematic areas are as follows: Climate Change / Sustainability Issues. Sub-thematic areas are done on the presentation's document of the SSCP.
