PhD Studentship Opportunities in the Environment East Doctoral Training Partnership (EnvEast DTP)

We are delighted to announce that EnvEast has received a £5 million award from the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) to create a new Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP); a collaboration between the Universities of East Anglia, Kent and Essex and 22 other research partners. EnvEast will enrol its first students in October 2014 and will support over 60 PhD students enrolling over the next five years in environmental, earth and ecological sciences. They will join a vibrant research community of other PhD research students from the UK and across the globe studying in the same or similar areas.

The EnvEast DTP will provide training notably in three key themes of international significance:

    (i) Climate, Marine and Atmospheric Systems
    (ii) Biodiversity, Ecosystem Services and Sustainable Development
    (iii) Natural Hazards

The partnership draws together relevant expertise from a complementary set of research organisations to train scientists capable of making outstanding contributions to their discipline and able to apply their knowledge to the challenges facing the UK economy, the quality of life for its citizens, and the state of the global environment.

The first studentship competition is now open (November 2013) for entry in October 2014. Deadline for applications is midnight on 6th January 2014.

Please see for full details and instructions on how to apply.

In general full studentship funding for 3.5 years of study is available for UK residents, while most EU applicants would be eligible for fees-only funding. Most non-EU nationals will NOT be eligible for funding but a small number will be. We ask applicants to check their eligibility carefully before applying because the eligibility rules are complex.
