Studentships for the Doctoral Training Partnership are organised around three pillars:
There are a minimum of 12 studentships available each year, supported by the Natural Environment Council, and augmented by typically 5 studentships from the Doctoral Training Partnership of the Universities of Manchester and Liverpool, and the National Oceanography Centre.
Each studentship is funded for 3½ years with possible extension up to 4 years in very exceptional circumstances.
Students who wish to propose their own research topic may do so, but should contact a prospective supervisor first. A project description similar to the ones shown in this website should be submitted with the application, and the prospective supervisor should alert the DTP Administrator about the proposal.
Application deadlines are as follows:
Earth and Environmental Sciences - 19th January 2018
Atmospheric Sciences - 2nd February 2018
Ocean Sciences - 2nd February 2018
Interviews will take place on 22nd February 2018 for Atmospheric and Ocean Sciences, and Earth Science projects based in Liverpool, and on 23rd February 2018 for Earth & Environmental Science projects based in Manchester.
