Applications are sought for one fully-funded London NERC DTP studentship (for a September 2018 start) that will be based in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Birkbeck, University of London. Candidates are strongly advised first to check their eligibility for NERC funding on the London NERC DTP website and to make contact with the relevant lead supervisor when preparing their application. Details of projects available can be downloaded as a pdf. Alternatively, you can develop your own project in consultation with a member of staff who has the appropriate expertise. Staff email contact details can be found here.
Applications should be made through Birkbeck’s online system by the closing date of 11am on 8th January 2018. Please include the unique project identifier and a supporting statement as to why you wish to study your selected project, your CV, copies of your transcripts or degree certificate(s) and details of TWO referees, including contact email addresses. Candidates shortlisted for interview will be notified before the end of January 2018 and interviews will be held in mid-February 2018.
The successful applicants will join Cohort 5 of the London NERC DTP in September 2018 and will participate alongside the rest of the cohort in selected training opportunities in their first year, including Induction Week, Skills Fridays at the Natural History Museum and the 10 day California fieldtrip.
