CDT SuMMeR Studentships

Fully funded PhDs in the NERC CDT for Sustainable Management of Marine Resources (SuMMeR)

Welcome to the CDT SuMMeR. We are excited to train the next generation of innovative, transdisciplinary researchers, solution providers and practitioners needed to support the sectors who deliver sustainable management of our precious marine resources. Postgraduate Researchers (PGRs) graduating from CDT SuMMeR will be highly employable experts who are part of a career-boosting network of uniquely trained scientists.

Our PGRs are supported by supervisors from our academic partners across the UK, but crucially every PGR will also have one (or more) stakeholder supervisor in their supervisory team. These stakeholder supervisors come from our network of more than 50 Associate Partners from industry, government and third sector organisations.   

CDT SuMMeR projects are designed to approach real issues facing sustainable marine management from a range of disciplines. If you have a passion for the marine environment, there could be a project for you.

Studentships will be for 3 years and 8 months with our postgraduate researchers surrounded by leading academics in their field. Training modules will be available to all postgraduate researchers across the CDT’s institutions allowing them to access the best of each institute.

CDT SuMMeR actively seeks to increase equity, diversity, and inclusion in marine science in line with UKRI’s EDI policy. This is supported by coordinating strong collaborations between our Associate and Academic Partners.
