34 funded PhD studentships are available through the London NERC Doctoral Training Partnership (http://london-nerc-dtp.org)

We are looking for outstanding students across the environmental sciences. Each student will start with multidisciplinary training ranging from lab techniques through public outreach to enacting policy implications. These experiences will help you design your own project to research over the subsequent three years. Initial training involves all nine London partner institutions (UCL, Birkbeck, Brunel, Kew, Kings, Natural History Museum, Queen Mary, Royal Holloway and ZSL's Institute of Zoology) and then you will decide where to undertake your research and who will supervise you.
  
You can find a list of projects that we (as potential supervisors) think are exciting on the website: either divided up into 6 broad themes or by the institution you would end up in. You are free to devise your own project or use one of these as a starting point then adapt towards your own interests.

Applicants should apply via the NERC London DTP website

<http://london-nerc-dtp.org/how-to-apply/>
