Applications are invited for five fully-funded PhD studentships in which you will learn to develop cutting-edge data science approaches to address key environmental science challenges. The studentships are part of the large-scale £2.6M EPSRC-funded grant “Data Science for the Natural Environment (DSNE)” ( This is an exciting opportunity to work at the heart of a multi-disciplinary team of researchers consisting of computer scientists, statisticians, environmental scientists and stakeholder organisations, working together to deliver methodological innovation in data science to tackle grand challenges around environmental change.


If learning to develop and deploy data science techniques to solve the biggest problems faced by humanity is an appealing next step, please send a letter of application to by 5pm GMT on Monday 11th February. The letter should include

  • An ordered list of which of the PhD projects you would like to be considered for, with an explanation of your reasoning
  • An explanation of why your skill set and previous education will allow you to be successful in these projects (a transcript of your undergraduate / masters degree programme is likely to be helpful)

To be able to answer these questions sensibly, it is advisable to talk to the supervisors of your desired projects in advance of submitting your application.
