NERC funding for a Doctoral Training Partnership

08-11-2013 by Administrator

The Natural Environment Research Council has just announced that Oxford will host one of the 15 national centres for doctoral training in Environmental Research, including Archaeological Science.   This will provide full funding for students selected to join this four year course.

The first year of the Environmental Research DPhil programme will involve training in three broad science streams, each of which includes the influence of, and consequences for, human-environment interactions:

• Biodiversity, Ecology and Evolutionary Processes
• Physical Climate System
• Dynamic Earth, Surface Processes and Natural Hazards

After this students will concentrate on their own research topic.

We encourage students interested in research in Archaeology with a strong Environmental component to consider this cross disciplinary course. Further details will be posted at: and on the School of Archaeology website.
