The Oxford DTP in Environmental Research seeks to recruit the most promising research students, from a wide variety of backgrounds, capable of developing their own research projects in line with the interests of our broad selection of supervisors. Each year between 24 and 30 students will be accepted into the DTP Programme through one of the below Research Streams.
They encourage applications from students with a wide range of academic backgrounds, including Archaeology, Biology, Botany, Chemistry, Computing, Geography, Geology, Mathematics, Meteorology, Physics, Statistics, Zoology.
Full Research Council funded studentships may be available for this programme. Click here for more information.
The DTP offers a novel training environment across three broad science streams, each of which includes the influence of, and consequences for, human-environment interactions:
- Biodiversity, Ecology and Evolutionary Processes - spans research into biological processes, systems and their interactions at scales ranging from the organism to the population in spheres ranging from human health to natural ecysystems, over all timescales.
- Physical Climate System -spans research across all aspects of the Physical Climate System; present, past and future, with srong links to climate impacts and mitigation.
- Dynamic Earth, Surface Processes and Natural Hazards- spans activities from theoretical seismology and isotope geochemistry to the analysis of natural resources, quantification of surface processes over all timescales, and geophysical hazards and risk.
