MPhil/PhD in Environmental Science, Policy, and Management

For Feb 2023 or Sep 2023 intake at HKUST

The Delina Research group at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology calls for applications for postgraduate studentships, both for MPhil and PhD in Environmental Science, Policy and Management, for either February or September 2023 entry.


Dr. Laurence L. Delina of the Division of Environment and Sustainability will supervise the students. The students will conduct research on climate, energy, and society with focus on vulnerable populations in Hong Kong and Southeast Asia. The students will join a growing, international, collegial, and passionate team of interdisciplinary researchers.


The Group looks for candidates with Bachelor's or Master's degrees in any discipline. We will prioritise those wtih social science and engineering background and those with demonstrated experience in designing and deploying qualitative and quantitative methods, and processing, analysing, and reporting these data. A record of independent and peer reviewed publications is ideal but not a must.


We offer competitive stipend, annual leave, and medical benefits.


To apply, please email LLD@ust.hk (subject: Postgraduate studentships) and attach: (1) a one-page letter describing your motivation, qualifications, skills, and experience;

(2) CV with names and contact details of at least two referees, preferably including your current or former supervisor; (3) undergraduate and (when applicable) postgraduate transcripts; and

(4) at least one writing sample (e.g., a thesis or any publication).


We will review applications immediately. Only shortlisted candidates will be notified.
