Applications for the E3 DTP (2017/2018 intake, starting September 2017) are now closed.
There won't be any second round of recruitment this year.
E3 DTP projects are fully funded NERC studentships and are only available to UK/EU citizens, who have worked and/or studied in the UK for the previous three years.
Our selection process for PhD programmes is very competitive. We require you to have a minimum of 2.1 undergraduate degree or equivalent. However, we may take relevant work experience and/or a Masters degree into account.
Please note that if English is not your first language then we will need to see evidence of your English language proficiency before we can offer you a place.
On the Projects page, please apply using the link 'Apply' next to the project you are interested in. The link will take you to the University of Edinburgh's Course and Degree Finder. On this page, go to the 'Apply for this degree' box on the right hand side and under PhD (Full-time), select 11 September 2017 from the drop-down box then click Apply.
Your application requires all of the following supporting documents which will need to be uploaded through the EUCLID application system:
Please ensure that all of the documents detailed above are submitted as part of your online EUCLID application, to allow your application to be processed without delay.
You are not required to submit a project proposal document. Please provide only the title of the project you wish to be considered for. You may apply for more than one project within one application by selecting your first choice as your application point and listing further options in the title section.’
Once all applications have been reviewed, we will invite selected short-listed candidates for interview. If you have been selected for interview, we will contact you by email towards the beginning of February with an invitation to interview in the School of GeoSciences at the University of Edinburgh. Interviews are likely to be held at the end of February.
Successful candidates will be contacted shortly after interviews and will be offered a place on our PhD programme with funding provided by the E3 DTP.
