Envision Doctoral Training Partnership

 
  

Envision is offering 12 PhD places to provide a new generation of environmental scientists with the skills, knowledge and experience they need to take on the challenges of a changing world.

Funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), Lancaster University is leading the initiative, which brings together the universities of Nottingham and Bangor, the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, the British Geological Survey and Rothamsted Research. 

Programme overview


Students will work with a powerful group of UK researchers and 44 industry and NGO partners, and will be exposed to training and development opportunities to develop skills needed for their future careers.  

NERC DTP training activities align themselves to the four domains of the Research Development Framework (RDF) to help develop students into first-class researchers:

  1. Knowledge and intellectual abilities
  2. Personal effectiveness
  3. Research governance and organisation
  4. Engagement, influence and impact

By taking this course, students will benefit from: 

  • broad research themes
  • access to leading world experts
  • close ties with business
  • relevant work experience
  • leadership training

Funding


Each student will be supported by a tax free stipend (£14,269 in 2016/17), typically for three-and-a-half years, plus a £2,500 per year research training support grant.

In addition, for eligible students, the award will cover EU/UK tuition fees.
