Welcome to the London NERC DTP


The London NERC DTP currently funds 70 PhD students in the natural sciences.  We will have further studentships on offer next academic year.

Our aim is to attain new standards of excellence in environmental science research training, and deliver a transformative inter-disciplinary experience for PhD students in the heart of London.

Our students are trained at 9 of the World-leading research centres, which cover a huge range of environmental science research, from those driven by contemporary environmental challenges to those exploring complex questions about the evolution of planet Earth.

Top 10 Highlights of the INTIMATE training course

Lake sediment core we retrieved from the base of a modern peat bog.

For those who don’t know, INTIMATE stands for INTegrating Ice core, MArine and TErrestrial records, just to get that one out of the way. In Quaternary Science, the INTIMATE network aims to better understand the mechanisms and impact of climate change by bringing together scientists to reconstruct and model past climates by integrating palaeological records. From 5th – 11th June this year, I took part in the INTIMATE Example Research Training School in Stara Kiszewa, Poland, alongside 20 other early career scientists.

Applications are now closed.
