We foster the next generation of water leaders by providing interdisciplinary training environments.

Doctoral Training

NERC Centre for doctoral training: Ecotoxicological Risk Assessment Towards Sustainable Chemical Use

The ECORISC Centre for Doctoral Training will produce a generation of innovator scientists that can identify, understand and effectively manage the risks of chemicals through the use of state-of-the-art science and out-of-the-box thinking. ECORISC is recruiting doctoral students.

NERC Centre for Doctoral Training in Real-Time Digital Water-Based Systems

Striving to reverse global environmental degradation and better protect both wildlife and human health. Our 3.5 year PhD will deliver training via student-stakeholder co-creation of Real-Time Digital Water-Based Systems focused around 4 UK rivers (Living Labs).

EPSRC Centre for doctoral training: Water informatics science & Engineering

The WISE CDT trains five different cohorts of engineers and scientists at the boundary of water informatics, sciences and engineering. Topics include water re-use, hydrologic applications, pollution control and river and marine renewable energy.

NERC GW4+ Doctoral Training Partnership

The NERC GW4+ DTP is a collaborative partnership formed of the GW4 Alliance world-class research-intensive universities plus five unique and prestigious Research Organisation partners: British Antarctic Survey, British Geological Survey, Centre for Ecology & Hydrology, the Natural History Museum and Plymouth Marine Laboratory.

NERC GW4 Centre for Doctoral Training: Freshwater Bioscience & Sustainability

Sustaining the world’s freshwater ecosystems while meeting the water demands of a growing population will require a new brand of intellectually mobile and agile problem solvers. Our vision is to train future leaders with the skills necessary to address the challenges facing freshwater sustainability.
