Pushing the frontiers of environmental science research: Jan 2023

Apply for funding to pursue an ambitious, high-risk and high-reward project in environmental science.

You must be:

  • based at a UK research organisation eligible for NERC funding
  • at lecturer level, or equivalent.

Improving model representation of turbulent atmospheric processes

Apply for funding to improve forecasts of extreme weather events and help the UK better manage weather-related risk using:

  • research into atmospheric turbulent processes
  • representations in kilometre and sub-kilometre scale weather and climate models.

Standard NERC eligibility rules apply.

Quantum sensing for environmental sciences

Apply for funding to explore the potential for quantum sensing to transform multiple areas of environmental science.

EPSRC and NERC are looking to fund proposals:

  • with a specific focus on quantum sensing
  • from a multidisciplinary team of researchers from the quantum technology and environmental science community.

UKRI-Defra One Health approach to vector borne diseases

Apply for funding to forecast, understand, mitigate and avoid vector (arthropod) borne disease (VBD) threats to the UK.

You must be based at a UK research organisation eligible for BBSRC funding.

Work with Brazilian researchers: NERC FAPESP lead agency

This opportunity allows UK-based researchers and researchers in the State of São Paulo, Brazil to submit a collaborative proposal under existing NERC funding opportunities. This will go through a single review process.

Work with US-based researchers on environmental science research

Apply for funding to work with US-based researchers on an environmental science proposal.

Collaborative work is governed by an agreement between NERC and NSF.

You must be:

  • based at a UK research organisation eligible for NERC funding
  • employed at lecturer (or equivalent) level or above.

Knowledge Transfer Partnership

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships help businesses to partner with an academic organisation, research organisation or a Catapult, to employ a graduate with the skills and knowledge that can help the business to innovate and grow.

NERC urgency funding

Apply for funding to respond quickly to transient and unexpected scientific opportunities.

These may be events affecting the environment created by the occurrence of sporadic natural events such as:

  • earthquakes
  • droughts
  • floods
  • ephemeral events in ecosystems.

You must be based at a UK research organisation eligible for NERC funding.
