Welcome to the E3 DTP

Funded by the Natural Environment Research Council, the Edinburgh Earth and Environment DTP brings together 28 partners and over 200 supervisors with research expertise spanning the full spectrum of earth and environmental sciences.

Our vision is to attract the best PhD students, to carry out frontier research and address environmental challenges, and to provide a flexible, multidisciplinary training programme that will enable our students to contribute to the next generation of scientific leaders in academia and industry.

The E3 DTP's brother, E4 DTP is now live. Please visit the E4 DTP website to browse our available projects and find out about our application process
