Welcome to the Oxford DTP in Environmental Research
The world faces multiple environmental challenges. Can you help to find the solutions?
Our ambition is to provide a world-class training environment for research students across the breadth and at the frontiers of environmental research. We wish to recruit a cohort of talented and promising individuals, from a wide variety of backgrounds, and support them to work creatively with end-users to advance knowledge and find new solutions to leading environmental challenges. Partnerships and collaborations underpin the excellence of our programme.
The Oxford DTP in Environmental Research has a large cluster of research supervisors who are based in 9 departments in Oxford, and across our external research partners. Our research spans the breadth of the Natural Environment Research Council’s ‘Discovery Science’ remit. Our research is world-leading, and is often multi-disciplinary. To help to navigate the opportunities that are available across Oxford, we have clustered our programme under three broad Research Streams – but there are many overlaps, and intersections. Use the stream pages to explore the many and diverse research project ideas that our supervisors would like to develop; and we encourage you to use these ideas, or to develop your own, as you think about where your research might take you.
