IAPETUS2 Doctoral Training Partnership: 16+ fully funded 3.5 year PhD Studentships

IAPETUS2 is a Doctoral Training Partnership that joins the leading research universities of Durham, Glasgow, Newcastle, St Andrews, Stirling and Heriot-Watt together with the British Geological Survey, the UK Centre for Ecology & Hydrology and the British Antarctic Survey. It is a multidisciplinary DTP, funded and accredited by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), offering PhD students a world-class environment in which to study, encompassing:

  • A range of attractive, fully funded PhD studentships;
  • Supervision and support from academics and researchers who are world-leaders in their fields;
  • Tailored training and development programmes, leading to an accredited Postgraduate Certificate qualification and Mini-MBA in entrepreneurial skills;
  • Placements and internship opportunities with a wide range of end-users; &
  • Access to a vast range of high-quality laboratories, facilities and resources across the partnership.

IAPETUS2 students benefit from collaboration and knowledge exchange with industry, policy-makers and other non-academic organisations, which is at the heart of our activities. Over 30% of our studentships are CASE awards, which involve students working in close partnership with a non-academic organisation throughout their PhD. We already have over 35 external partners supporting IAPETUS2’s research, ranging from BP, to the National Trust, to the Ordnance Survey.

All applicants need to meet NERC’s eligibility criteria to be considered for an IAPETUS2 studentship and these are detailed in the current UKRI studentship terms and conditions.

In order to address historical imbalances in the higher education sector, IAPETUS2 is committed to recruiting a diverse, representative community of researchers in Environmental Science. The DTP has developed an Equality, Diversity and Inclusion policy to further this. This includes the Widening Participation Scheme, which identifies Home applicants from underrepresented groups. The DTP aims to give up to 30% of interview places to those eligible for this scheme. Also, we are pleased to introduce the IAPETUS2 Diversifying Talent Scholarship Scheme, a separate competition designed for those from underrepresented groups. For more, please see the IAPETUS2 website.

How to Apply:

Prospective Home students (i.e., those who are a UK National (meeting residency requirements), have settled status, have pre-settled status (meeting residency requirements), or have indefinite leave to remain or enter) should apply directly to IAPETUS2 via the forms on our website by the DTP deadline of Friday 5th January 2024 at 12pm (GMT). You are strongly encouraged to contact the supervisor of the proposed project to find out more. International Students must contact the relevant supervisor by no later than Monday 11th December 2023 to express an interest in the project, and to determine whether the supervisor would like to sponsor their application.

The IAPETUS2 application form is designed to provide us with the information we need to evaluate your application. We know that successful PhD students come from a wide range of backgrounds and with widely differing experiences. By using the form, we can best evaluate your past achievements and potential for PhD research in the context of any past opportunities or barriers you may have faced. Our aim is to help you demonstrate your potential and make the best possible case for your future career in the environmental sciences.
