Students using computers in classroom

NERC concentrates its support for PhD training in doctoral training partnerships (DTPs) and Centres for Doctoral Training (CDTs). By doing so, we are able to maximise student training and development, utilising a cohort based approach. In addition, NERC provides extra training and development opportunities through advanced skills training schemes.

NERC supports the development of early career researchers, primarily through our Independent Research Fellowships, to advance scientific leadership among the most promising early career environmental scientists.
