NERC GW4+ Doctoral Training Partnership

PG Penguins helping a postgraduate with their fieldworkA total of 190 postgraduate research studentships in Environmental Science will be available across the GW4+ Doctoral Training Partnership over five years with the first students having started in October 2014. 140 of these are awarded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), making it the largest of those awarded by the NERC.

The GW4+ DTP programme is one of 15 DTPs and the largest of its kind in the UK.

In addition to the core GW4 partners (the University of Bristol, Cardiff University, the University of Exeter and the University of Bath), the GW4+ DTP brings together a consortium of over 30 research, industrial and third-sector organisations to deliver innovative training to environmental science PhD students.

Those collaborating include: the Welsh Government; Natural Resources Wales; the British Antarctic Survey, the British Geological Survey, the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, Plymouth Marine Laboratory, the Met Office, the Natural History Museum, BHP Billiton, the Food and Environment Research Agency, and Syngenta.

Under the programme, a minimum of 30 per cent of the students will work with non-academic partners. This is intended to provide students with the valuable industry experience they need to enter a wide range of careers.
