The Manchester and Liverpool NERC DTP is looking to recruit up to 18 students for September 2016. These 3.5 year fully-funded studentships are offered within the themes of the atmosphere, ocean, solid Earth and molecular environmental sciences. These research projects draw on the world-class research expertise in our two Russell group universities, Manchester and Liverpool, and our host partner, the National Oceanography Centre.
Our DTP will train the next generation of environmental scientists to address major challenges in the science of the Earth system. Our training is tailored to suit the individual needs of each student, drawing on our strength in each research theme, as well as providing a broader environmental overview to the research challenges in environmental sciences.
Our programme is augmented by other government funded and industrial partners providing additional training, work experience and opportunity for placements.
Applicants must have, or be about to obtain, a first class or upper second degree in a relevant science or engineering discipline. If you do not have these qualifications but you have substantial relevant post-graduate experience please contact the School holding the studentship to find out if your relevant experience is sufficient.
Full NERC studentships are available to UK nationals and other EU nationals that have resided in the UK for three years prior to commencing the studentship. If you are a citizen of a EU member state you will be eligible for a fees-only award.
