Student Training and PhD Opportunities

There are currently over 100 PhD students associated with our organisation and nearly half of these 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.

NERC GW4+ PhD opportunity available.

Closing date for applications: 29th April 2019
