The Cambridge Climate Life and Earth (C-CLEAR) NERC DTP provides PhD training across NERC (Natural Environment Research Council) remit science. Embedded in the outstanding research environment of the University of Cambridge and the British Antarctic Survey (BAS), C-CLEAR is organised around three major research themes: Biology and Conservation, Climate Change and Environmental Processes, and Solid Earth and Geological Hazards.
The C-CLEAR DTP is offering at least 12 fully-funded PhD studentships to start in October 2022. Hosting partners in Cambridge are:
Students in the C-CLEAR cohort 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.

The NERC C-CLEAR DTP and University of Cambridge actively support equality, diversity and inclusion and we encourage applications from eligible applicants from all sections of society, particularly from universities and backgrounds that may be underrepresented at the University of Cambridge.
For a full list of projects and information on how to apply see the C-CLEAR DTP website at http://nercdtp.esc.cam.ac.uk. The application deadline is Thursday 6 January 2022 at 12:00 pm noon GMT (including supporting documents, ie. references). If you are interested in working with a particular supervisor or on a particular topic, please see our searchable list of projects at http://nercdtp.esc.cam.ac.uk/programme/project-list.
UK (home) students will be eligible for a full NERC studentship. More information can be via the University's website and the UKRI Training Grant Guide. A full studentship will cover the cost of fees and the student will receive the standard NERC maintenance allowance (for 2021/22 is £15,609 pa).
The C-CLEAR NERC DTP will be able to offer a limited number of studentships to international students (EU and non-EU), and funding from UKRI will cover both fees at the UK rate and a stipend to support living costs. The take-up of an offer from C-CLEAR may be subject to students obtaining additional funding to cover the difference between the home fee and the international fee, and for this reason we strongly recommend that international students make clear on their Cambridge application form that they wish to be considered for other funding (such as the Cambridge Commonwealth, European & International Trust) as well as the DTP in order to bridge this gap.
Please note that most EU, EEA and Swiss students commencing their studies from October 2021 will now be classified with ‘overseas’ fee status.
There are some exceptions to this, and subject to satisfying the legislative requirements (including residency requirements), the following students will usually still qualify for ‘home’ fee status:
