NERC announces GW4+ Doctoral Training Partnership consortium funded

05 Nov 2013

Very exciting news that the School is part of a new Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) supported by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC). The partnership is a strategic alliance of the "Great Western Four" research-intensive universities (Bristol, Exeter, Cardiff, and Bath) and six leading research organisations (British Geological Survey, British Antarctic Survey, Natural History Museum, Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, Plymouth Marine Laboratory, and the UK Meteorological Office). The consortium also includes 26 associate partners from a full range of non-academic graduate employers spanning policy and legislation, media, industry, environmental research, and public engagement.

Training for PhDs recruited through the DTP will stem from eight cross-cutting research themes: climate change and impacts; atmospheres, oceans and ice; genomes and evolution; solid Earth and planetary geology; natural hazards, resources and sustainability; ecology, conservation and biodiversity; water; and biogeochemical cycles.

As administrative lead for the partnership, Bristol University hosts the GW4+ Website here.

Check out the new Cardiff-based PhD studentships (for Autumn 2014) available through EARTH, and stay tuned for more information!
