NERC skills training - environmental science

The Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) is presently inviting input from industry and policy-makers on areas of  skills training relevant to your organisation and NERC remit*.   The information will be used to inform NERC’s Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) investment decisions for the next 3-5 years. A CDT focuses on a specific, directed skills (PhD level training) challenge as defined by users including private sector, public sector and other civil society partners. Existing CDTs can be found here.

If you or colleagues consider there to be an area of skills training need relevant to your business and NERC remit, we invite you to submit evidence through the 2017 NERC Request for Evidence of Training Priority  process. Further information concerning the request for evidence, including the online submission process is available on the NERC website. Should you have any queries concerning any aspect of this process, please contact the NERC Research Careers team or David Roberts, Senior Programmer Manager- Research Careers.

*NERC's remit includes terrestrial, marine, freshwater, science-based archaeology, atmospheric and polar sciences, and Earth observation. Our scientists study and monitor the physical, chemical and biological processes on which our planet and life itself depends.
