Studentships

We have trained over 50 PhD students in projects ranging from forestry to understanding climate variability.

NCEO is recognised internationally for its high-quality research. We can host MPhil and PhD students either within a constituent research group or as a CASE partner.

UK students can apply for PhD places with NCEO through the following NERC Doctoral Training Partnerships, CENTA, MPE CDTOxford or Scenario.

The Scenario DTP is currently advertising studentships, including some with NCEO CASE funding: Information on Scenario studentships here. Centa is also advertising PhD studentships with Earth Observation topics. University of Leicester is currently advertising PhD studentships in Earth Observation: details here
