QUADRAT-DTP brings together two research and teaching centres of excellence in biological sciences and geosciences. The University of Aberdeen is a world class multidisciplinary research and training institution and Queen’s University Belfast is a Russell Group University with an international reputation for world class research.
Funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), with support from several partner organisations, QUADRAT-DTP will provide outstanding students from the UK and EU with unrivalled opportunities to gain the skills and holistic understanding essential for the next generation of scientific leaders in academic, industry and policy development due to the unique geographic positions, unprecedented research and training infrastructure and strategic alliances of the two academic partners.
Each year, we award 20 full studentships to exceptional students, providing funding to support Doctoral studies for PhD programmes. Our themes of Biodiversity, Earth Systems and Environmental Management allow for an integration of both theoretical and applied projects capable of addressing the most significant environmental and societal challenges we face now and in the future. The QUADRAT-DTP vision is to equip students with the skills, outlook, purpose and holistic understanding to lead, communicate and translate innovative cross-disciplinary research that meets the challenges associated with the effective management of the natural environment; and position our graduates as the next generation of scientific leaders in academia, industry and policy development.
It is anticipated shortlisted candidates will be called for interview at the project host institute between Monday 18 February and Friday 22 February 2019.
QUADRAT DTP students are fully-funded for a minimum of 3.5 years, to start the following October.
