Science and Solutions for a Changing Planet

A NERC Doctoral Training Partnership

The Science and Solutions for a Changing Planet (SSCP) DTP is pleased to announce 14 NERC funded studentships starting in October 2022!

Working in partnership

With six host research partners and a multitude of public and private sector partners, the SSCP DTP offers an innovative training and development programme that will prepare and inspire a new generation of environmental experts and leaders to tackle some of the toughest challenges of our time.

Working across Imperial and with our partners, we integrate world-leading expertise from a range of fields and sectors to enable students to explore how research can inform and impact decision making in government and business.

Training and development journey

NERC Doctoral Training Programme - Science and Solutions for a Changing Planet (SSCP)

Broadening your skill set – The DTP offers both outstanding research training and develops the key skills required for successful careers in the environment sector. We do this through a mixture of interactive training, inspirational seminars and customised residential courses.

Secondment opportunities with government, business and NGOs complement this activity, expanding students’ horizons and increasing awareness of how organisations address environmental challenges.

Students join a vibrant and active cohort encompassing all areas of environmental science, from engineering to ecology. The cohorts and even help to craft the development journey of the DTP itself. This not only enables our students to learn from different sectors but also help to direct their own training.

Studentship Opportunities

Our studentships are fully funded for a minimum of 3.5 years. They include:

  • Stipend based on RCUK minima
  • Home Fees
  • Research Costs
