Cambridge NERC Doctoral Training Partnerships

Graduate Research Opportunities

The Cambridge NERC Doctoral Training Partnerships

The Cambridge Earth System Sciences (ESS, 2014-2018 intakes) and Climate Life and Earth (C-CLEAR, 2019 intake-onward) NERC Doctoral Training Partnerships provide PhD training across NERC science. Embedded in the outstanding research environments of the University of Cambridge and the British Antarctic Survey (BAS), the Cambridge NERC DTPs are organised around three major research themes: Solid Earth and Geological Hazards, Climate Change and Environmental Processes, and Biology and Conservation.

Students in the ESS and C-CLEAR cohorts engage in research projects of global significance across NERC science, and receive high-quality training in research, professional, technical and transferable skills through a focused core programme. Training is guided by personalised advice and the expertise of a network of partners in industry, government, the third sector and beyond.
