Doctoral Training Partnerships

We are partners in several Doctoral Training Partnerships (DTPs) across the country. These awards are made to Research Organisations or university consortiums for them to disburse as PhD studentship funding, with the universities themselves providing match funding at varying levels.

Historic England and DTPs

We are currently partners with the following DTPS

AHRC funded

NERC funded

An increasing number of students involved in these partnerships are now turning to research areas that address our priorities and we are pleased to be able to offer guidance on their selection of topic.

Our support for research through a DTP can include

  • Basic advice or access to sites or data
  • Offering work placements with specialist teams
  • Full co-supervision of postgraduate PhDs

The level of support we provide will vary from research project to research project. It will be assessed against our ability to offer in-house expertise and the resource availability – as well as the priority of the research being undertaken.

NERC funded DTP Studentship Available

Newcastle University, School of Civil Engineering & Geosciences, in partnership with Durham University, English Heritage and Historic England, are seeking a Doctoral Training Partnership student for an IAPETUS research project to assess the vulnerability of tangible cultural heritage to natural hazards under a changing climate regime, demonstrating this on the iconic and internationally renowned monument of Hadrian's Wall.

Further information can be found on the IAPETUS website.

Application deadline is 20th January 2017.

Research priorities for DTPs

We are sharing our research priorities with our academic partners through our web site. Our Research Strategy enables prospective researchers to see the research imperatives in our Corporate Action Plan and other supporting statements, such as our Science Strategy.

Those wanting further information on our research priorities and on our collaborative work with universities and the research councils should contact the Historic England Research Partnerships Officer using the details below.
