NERC Edinburgh Earth and Environment Doctoral Training Partnership (E4)

Fully funded PhD projects addressing the most exciting
and important questions in Environmental Science

The Edinburgh Earth, Ecology and Environment (E4) Doctoral Training Partnership, led by the School of GeoSciences at the University of Edinburgh, brings together 33 partners from the research, education, policy and industry sectors. The E4 DTP builds on our experience with the existing E3 DTP, meaning that E4 students will enter a vibrant PhD environment. We aim to deliver an outstanding programme of PhD training that sits alongside a broad range of multidisciplinary research spanning the whole range of NERC remit.
