Welcome to the the NERC Panorama DTP (Doctoral Training Partnership). Our DTP is a collaboration of the University of Leeds, the University of York and the University of Hull. As such, the DTP is hosted by six academic departments across the University of Leeds, the Wolfson Atmospheric Chemistry Laboratories at the University of York and the Energy and Environment Institute at the University of Hull and represents a wide range of research in the natural environment. We are building on a history of bi-lateral and multi-lateral research collaborations between all partners and the legacy of the SPHERES DTP (2014-2018).
Through high-quality research projects and training, we attract postgraduate students with potential into natural environment science research and train them for future employment and leadership, enabling them to contribute to environmental well-being and UK economic prosperity.
Equality in recruitment:
As a collaboration of international research-led universities in Yorkshire, we welcome students from all walks of life and from across the world. The NERC Panorama DTP aims to foster an inclusive environment where all can flourish and prosper, and we are proud of our strong commitment to student education. Within our programme, we are dedicated to diversifying our community and we welcome the unique contributions that individuals can bring. As such, we particularly encourage applications from underrepresented and minoritized groups. Candidates will always be selected based on merit and ability within an inclusive and fair recruitment process.
As part of our ongoing work to improve Equality, Diversity and Inclusion within the NERC Panorama DTP, we have identified that UK Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities, those from a disadvantaged socio-economic background, and disabled people are currently underrepresented in our PhD programmes. To address this, for 2023 starters we ringfenced 10% of our interviews and 10% of our full DTP studentships for these underrepresented groups. We will be doing the same for our 2024 studentships, with more detail on eligibility and how to apply for the studentships will be available soon on the How to Apply page – please watch this space!
