The NERC Panorama DTP has around 26 fully funded studentships for October 2020 starters to study the science of the Earth's atmosphere and climate, Earth processes and the living world. These are all open to UK students, with a limited number of fully funded places alternatively available to EU students.
The University of Leeds conducts world-leading research across a broad range of science related to the atmosphere, biosphere, geophysics and geology. The Wolfson Atmospheric Chemistry Laboratory at the University of York’s Chemistry Department provides an integrated research environment in atmospheric chemistry and composition and provides key complementary skills in atmospheric composition observations, laboratory studies and modelling. The Energy and Environment Institute (EEI) at the University of Hull (UoH) is a multidisciplinary research institute delivering high quality research, spanning from biology to geosciences, and solutions to major environmental and societal challenges. Our website lists the exciting and challenging research projects available in our host departments.
Students will be enrolled in an innovative training programme that provides them with multidisciplinary skills which extend well beyond their personal research topic and which will prepare them for a range of careers. Leeds, York and Hull are geographically close so that students can be effectively integrated into a 'single-site' which provides comprehensive, multidisciplinary training within a small geographical area.
Our external partners include the Met Office, NERC research centres, charities, non-governmental organisations, government bodies and industrial/commercial organisations from the UK and abroad. These partners will play active roles in co-supervising students, providing placement opportunities and sharing expertise through training.
