NERC centre for doctoral training: open funding opportunity

Apply for funding to deliver a NERC centre for doctoral training (CDT) to address priority or emerging training needs within the environmental sciences.

Applications must be centred within NERC’s remit but interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary CDTs extending more widely across the breadth of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) are welcome.

NERC funding is available to support three CDTs each in receipt of 24 notional studentships across three annual intakes.

These challenge-led CDTs will produce the next generation of internationally recognised doctoral researchers with each CDT supporting PhD studentships, creating a community aimed at addressing a specific research challenge and related skills gap. Applications must identify the challenge of focus for the CDT and justify the specific need for doctoral training in this area.

You can apply if you are employed by an organisation eligible for UKRI research grant funding.

Organisations may only be the administrative lead on one application

Organisations that are not eligible for funding may act as collaborative partners.
