Host Departments

Lead supervisors in the SCENARIO DTP span a broad range of disciplines at the University of Reading and the University of Surrey. Each supervisor is a member of a particular department or school. As a SCENARIO PhD student you would sit within the department of your lead supervisor. You and your supervisor will be aided by between one and three co-supervisors picked from the partner organisations and relevant to your research.

In addition to Reading and Surrey, the NERC Centre for Ecology & Hydrology (CEH) and the British Geological Survey (BGS) are host institutions . If you are successful in winning a studentship at CEH or BGS, then you will be based in the same location as your lead supervisor at CEH/BGS. Both NERC centres host a considerable cohort of PhD students. The supervisors from the NERC National Centre for Atmospheric Science and National Centre for Earth Observation are based within the universities of Reading and Surrey.

All SCENARIO students will be treated as a cohort and DTP events will be organised to bring all students together for training and scientific discussion, including the Annual SCENARIO Conference. The SCENARIO DTP Hub, housed within the Department of Meteorology at the University of Reading, will be able to provide a desk and computing facilities to visiting students from DTP partners outside Reading for periods of up to 3 months.

The departments have more PhD projects in environmental science, in addition to those funded via the NERC SCENARIO DTP. Some of these additional projects are also available to international students. You can find out about these from the links below by following the path through to the PhD programme pages.

In addition to the host partners within the UK, there are three international universities which offer exciting internship & training opportunities including:
