NERC Doctoral Training Partnership

Applications for 2018 entry to the London Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) Doctoral Training Partnership are now open. 

The London Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) Doctoral Training Partnership is offering up to 35 studentships at Queen Mary University of London.

Students will be trained by nine of the world leading research centres, which cover a huge range of the environmental sciences from those driven by contemporary environmental challenges to those exploring challenging questions about the evolution of the planet. The aim of this partnership is to attain new standards of excellence in environmental science research training and deliver a transformative inter-disciplinary experience for PhD students in the heart of London. 

We have been awarded a share of the studentships available for the next five years funded by the NERC.


These studentships will be funded by the NERC DTP and are available to UK nationals and EU nationals that have resided in the UK for three years prior to commencing the studentship.

Full eligibility criteria for these studentships can be found on the London NERC DTP website.


Applications for 2018 entry close at 11am on Monday 8th January 2018.

Applications are not made to a specific project and, therefore, only one application per applicant is required.  

You can find out how to apply on the London NERC DTP application pages.
