Soils Training and Research Studentships

Our Mission is to create a novel and unique national training experience for the next generation of soil scientists.


Soils Training and Research Studentships

Third cohort of students now on board. 

Short Excerpt

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