Funded by NERC and BBSRC, the STARS Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) is an exciting consortium of 8 organizations, comprising 4 universities and 4 research institutes from around England, Scotland and Wales who are collaborating to offer training to PhD students in soil science.

Each year 11 students will be recruited to the STARS CDT and have the added benefit of cohort training in the STARS College, both face-to-face and online. They will have access to internationally renowned soil scientists and research facilities as well as benefiting from the support of fellow students from across the country.
