Department of Computer Science
Department of Earth Sciences
Department of Engineering Science
Department of Statistics
School of Geography and the Environment
Earth and Space Science Informatics (ESSI)

Intelligent Earth: UKRI AI Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in AI for the Environment
The Intelligent Earth CDT (https://intelligent-earth.ox.ac.uk) brings together academics from key environmental science and AI departments across the University of Oxford with non-academic partners to train a new generation of PhD students to tackle some of the most pressing environmental issues using AI through five closely connected themes:
iii) Natural hazards
iv) Environmental solutions
v) Core AI/ML research
We offer up to 20 fully funded places in the CDT per year, supported by UKRI, Oxford and partners. By applying to the CDT, you are automatically considered for a funded place. We are committed to improving access to candidates from groups that are under-represented at Oxford.
The CDT provides a unique interdisciplinary student experience: each project will be advised by both an environmental science supervisor and an AI supervisor, plus an advisor from one of our non-academic partners, who also serves as a secondment host.
Intelligent Earth is a student-led programme: instead of applying to a pre-defined project, students will be matched with supervisors and partners throughout the first year of training and develop their project proposal with their personal supervisory team.
A virtual open day for prospective applicants will be held on 30 November 2023 from 9:30-12:30 GMT:
- The programme will include an overview of the Intelligent Earth Centre for Doctoral training, its core themes, and the application process.
- A questions & answers session will address any outstanding questions.
- Potential applicants will be able to meet with PhD students with related research interests.
Please complete the open day registration form: https://forms.office.com/e/aXB2c5ujc2
The application deadline for the September 2024 entry is Friday 5 January 2024 at 12:00 midday UK time.
