Fully funded PhD projects addressing the most exciting and important questions in Environmental Science

The University of Edinburgh - School of GeoSciences

The Edinburgh Earth, Ecology and Environment (E4) Doctoral Training Partnership (https://www.ed.ac.uk/e4-dtp), led by the School of GeoSciences at the University of Edinburgh, brings together 33 partners from the research, education, policy and industry sectors. The E4 DTP aims to deliver an outstanding programme of PhD training that sits alongside a broad range of multidisciplinary research spanning the whole range of NERC remit.

We seek to recruit the brightest PhD students to address environmental challenges, providing flexible training in a multidisciplinary setting and supportive research environment.

We are committed to increasing the diversity of our applicant pool and recruited cohorts and as such encourage applications from students from diverse backgrounds and/or with protected characteristics. We have widening participation mechanisms in place to specifically support applications from students who are from an under-represented group and who wish to disclose that information within their application (please refer to our application process for further details https://www.ed.ac.uk/e4-dtp/how-to-apply/application-process).

The E4 DTP aims to create and promote a safe, inclusive and supporting environment where all staff and students are treated fairly, equally and with dignity and respect so that they can develop to their full potential. We recognise, respect and value the differences that students, staff and partners bring to our doctoral training partnership. For more information on Equality, Diversity and Inclusion at the University of Edinburgh, see https://www.ed.ac.uk/equality-diversity.

The E4 DTP has a minimum of 18 fully-funded studentships available for September 2023 entry. Studentships include stipend, fees and research costs for a minimum of 3.5 years with opportunities to extend the stipend to up to another 5 months through our optional professional internship and publication schemes.

The E4 DTP is open to application to all UK/EU/non-EU citizens however the number of students with international fees status that can be recruited is restricted. An indication of the fees status categories and further details on eligibility criteria can be found on our website. (https://www.ed.ac.uk/e4-dtp/how-to-apply/entry-and-eligibility-criteria)

We have 90+ supervisor-led projects to choose from in a wide range of topics within NERC remit. We also offer a student-led project route where students can submit their own project if they find a supportive supervisor.
