The Science and Solutions for a Changing Planet (SSCP) Doctoral Training Partnership integrates six host partners and a number of business and policy sector partners, to offer an exciting programme that trains and inspires the next generation of environmental experts and leaders to tackle some of the toughest challenges of our time. The SSCP is funded by the Natural Environmental Research Council and based at Imperial College London. Projects for an October 2020 start are listed below. For a full list of these and other projects, with links to detailed descriptions, information on eligibility and instructions on how to apply, go to:

For project-related queries and to apply, contact individual supervisors. For general enquiries about the SSCP DTP, contact Christiane Morgan, Doctoral Training Coordinator ([email protected]).

Closing date for applications 6th January 2020.
