Applying Online

Please apply using the link ‘Apply Here’ next to the project you are interested in.  The link will take you to the University’s online application system (EUCLID) at the page: ‘Course and degree finder’.  On this page, go to the ‘Apply for this degree’ box on the right hand side and under PhD (Full-time), select 14 September 2015 from the drop-down box before clicking Apply.

Your application requires all of the following supporting documents which will need to be uploaded through the EUCLID application system.

  • Curriculum vitae: This should include your academic achievements and appropriate non-academic experience and achievements.
  •  Transcripts and certificates of all degrees to date: If you have not yet completed your current degree, you will need to send an official transcript of your results to date.
  •  Academic References: We require a minimum of two signed academic references – these must be submitted with your application.
  •  Cover Letter: In this letter (~1 page), you should identify your preferred project, explain why it interests you and how your qualifications and skills make you an excellent candidate for the project.

Please ensure that all of the documents detailed above are submitted as part of your online EUCLID application, to allow your application to be processed without delay.

Interview. Once all applications have been reviewed, we will invite selected short-listed candidates for interview.  If you have been selected for interview, we will contact you by email with an invitation to interview in the School of GeoSciences in Edinburgh.

Offers. Successful candidates will be contacted shortly after interviews and will be offered a place on our PhD programme with funding provided by the E3 NERC DTP.
