Student Training and PhD Opportunities

There are currently over 100 PhD students associated with our organisation and nearly half of these students work full time at our offices and labs in Cambridge. Students have full access to our state of the art research facilities and some have the opportunity to carry out research in the polar regions. We strongly encourage the pursuit of interdisciplinary projects, and there is the opportunity to work with teams at the forefront of global change and exploration science in both polar regions.

Our projects are in partnership with NERC Doctoral Training Partnerships (DTPs) and UKRI Centres for Doctoral Training (CDT)s. More information can be found on their websites – C-CLEAR, ARIES, INSPIRE, IAPETUS, GW4+, AI4ER, SENSE

Eligibility:  UK students will be eligible for a full NERC studentship.  More information is available in the UKRI Training Grant Guide.  A full studentship will include the cost of fees, stipend, and research funding allowance.

UKRI have confirmed that international students (EU and non-EU) will be eligible for all Research Council-funded postgraduate studentships from the start of 2021/2022 academic year.  There will be a limited number of international studentships available.  Further information for international studentships is available on each DTP and CDT website.

Projects for 2022 will be advertised in the autumn.
