Dear Cryolist,


The NERC funded SENSE Centre for Doctoral Training, is currently advertising 37 fantastic funded PhD opportunities. Many of these projects are focussed on important Polar and cryosphere science topics which may be of interest to you.


For all projects the key facts are:

  • Application deadline: 10th January 2021
  • Eligibility: UK and International applicants are welcome
  • Funding status: At least 16 fully funded PhD studentships will be awarded
  • How to apply:
  • Equality, Diversity and Inclusion: SENSE is committed to improving equality, diversity and inclusion in the scientific community, and therefore we strongly welcome applications from a diverse range of backgrounds. To find out more about the practical steps we are taking to improve our PhD recruitment process, please see this link:
  • PhD Application Support: Well, 2020 hasn’t been a normal year! As it may be more difficult for you to access support and guidance from your academic mentors this year, we invite you to join us for a couple of helpful webinars this November.
