Following the initial recruitment round, which closed on 16th March 2016, and subsequent recruitment rounds at Heriot-Watt University and the University of Exeter, one PhD position remains available at the University of Nottingham.
The NERC CDT ethos is to appoint on merit and is committed to diversity and equality.
Duration of Studentships
NERC studentships covering the UK tuition fee, stipend (RCUK minimum, currently estimated at £14,142 for 2016/17) and Research Training Support Grant (£5k p.a.) are available to UK citizens and to citizens of the EU who have been permanently in residence in the UK for a minimum of 3 years prior to taking up the studentship. Full details of eligibility for NERC studentships can be found in the Research Councils UK Training Grants Terms and Conditions document available at http://www.rcuk.ac.uk/funding/grantstcs/. Funding is unfortunately not available to overseas candidates for any of the remaining PhD positions in this recruitment round.
