The Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) has invested £100 million to fund over 200 PhD studentships, as part of its Doctoral Training Partnerships 2 programme. 17 PhD training partnerships, known as DTPs, will provide the scientists of tomorrow with scientific, professional and technical skills.

The DTPs bring together universities, research organisations and partners from a wide range of backgrounds across the UK, including the National Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS). 

NCAS are delighted to be involved in 12 of the 17 DTPs funded by NERC, and will be able to provide the students with a comprehensive training programme drawing on the expertise of over 170 UK and international atmospheric scientists.

NCAS training courses cover the full sphere of atmospheric science, and support students to master the fundamentals and refine measurement and modelling techniques. Where applicable, NCAS will also provide access to NCAS services, facilities, and professional networks. The services and facilities include a state-of-the-art atmospheric research aircraft, an extensive equipment pool of instrumentation for ground-based and airborne measurements, computational models, data analysis and storage.
