The Envision Doctoral Training Programme (DTP) brings together a group of UK researchers with industry and non-governmental organisation (NGO) partners to train a new generation of environmental scientists in the skills, knowledge and experience essential for solving the challenges of a changing world. Funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), Lancaster University leads this initiative in collaboration with the Universities of Nottingham and Bangor, the UK Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, the British Geological Survey and Rothamsted Research. Envision also partners with large multinationals, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and international research centres.
We recruit 16 students per year to our DTP and would love to invite you to join us. As a doctoral student in Envision you will be provided with a multidisciplinary research training environment with supervisors working at the forefront of environmental research. You will have the opportunity to work with multiple research organisations, businesses and a wide cohort of peers which offers the potential for new science and collaborations.
Further information about the projects can be found here, including details on how to apply and the application form.
Envision projects will commence in October 2021. The deadline for applications is 13th January 2021.
We offer fully funded 3.5-year studentships.
Envision DTP complies with UKRI and NERC guidelines. Please refer to the UKRI Full Eligibility Criteria alongside the information provided below.
Fully-funded studentships are available for Home students. To be classed as a Home student, candidates must meet the following criteria:
If you do not meet the above criteria, you will be classed as an international student. International students are eligible to apply for all Envision funded studentships.
Envision DTP is open to international applicants as per UKRI guidance, and these may only be available through some of our partners. There is a limited number of international PGRs allowable in the Envision programme under UKRI guidance (maximum 30% of intake). As a result of the cap, places cannot be guaranteed to any/all international applicants. Successful international PGRs would not be expected to make up the difference in fee themselves, but that other sources of funding would be sought for that.
You must have or expect to have, a First or Upper Second Class UK Honours degree or the equivalent qualification gained outside the UK, in a relevant subject to the project you are applying for. These subjects will be specified in the individual project descriptions.
Envision provides training that will support you in developing your research skills. These skills, honed alongside the experience gained working with the UK’s leading scientists and our partner businesses, will benefit your future career. Envision’s training provision includes workshops, online courses and cross institutional building activities. In addition, you will be guaranteed a placement opportunity to gain employment experience.
