Subject: UEL Research Studentships programme

Dear Colleagues

I  enclose details about these new research studentships. I am writing
to you because the intention is that one or two of these  will be attached
the London East Research Institute. These particular studentships will have
a focus on Urban Studies, and on regeneration issues related to the Thames
Gateway plan for sustainable communities. LERI is the unversity's only
Research Institute and as such offers an interdisciplinary  framework
for study, across a whole range of policy  areas. These include  Housing,
Transport, Health, Tourism and heritage, the cultural and knowledge
economies, environmental planning , community  arts, urban planning and
policy analysis, design for a multicultural city.

Ph.D students will have an opportunity to participate fully  in the
intellectual life of the Institute, including its public events and
seminar programmes; they will be able to attend courses in our new
MA in Urban Innovation,  contribute to our on line journal Rising East
and, if appropriate  to their studies , engage with our funded  research
and community outreach programmes.

You can find out more about our programmes  and activities  by going to
our website www.uel.ac.uk/londoneast and also be checking out our
online jounral : www.risingeast.org

I would be very grateful if you could draw the attention of suitable
candidates to  this new opportunity.

Many thanks,
