Plymouth Marine Laboratory (PML) works with a number of University partners to train tomorrow’s leaders in Environmental Science.  These collaborations, known as Doctoral Training Partnerships (DTPs), offer postgraduate studentships and training across the full range of multidisciplinary environments, helping to enrich the student experience.

Each DTP will create a strong and active community of students that are able - and encouraged - to integrate, work, and learn together. Students will receive in-depth, advanced research training, as well as training in the professional and transferable skills essential in today's economy.

PML is a multidisciplinary, internationally renowned, strategic marine research centre in our five areas of research excellence: Earth observation and remote sensing; biogeochemical cycling; biodiversity and molecular science; marine ecosystem modelling; and socioeconomics of ecosystem goods and services.

PhD opportunities are developed with partners from 2 DTPs. Further details on each partnership can be found here:

  • GW4+ (with the Universities of Bristol, Bath, Exeter and Cardiff)
  • ARIES (formerly EnvEast) (with the Universities of East Anglia, Essex, Kent, Plymouth and Royal Holloway University of London)
 

We currently have no PhD projects available, but check back in the future for new opportunities!
