Environmental Sciences : Research Degrees

The school has pioneered the theory and practice of interdisciplinary research since its founding in 1967.

Research is undertaken under a set of guiding research themes, often with interdisciplinary research centres and groupings of like-minded researchers. The School benefits from excellent research facilities and has extensive national and international links with many other research and policy making bodies.

The School of Environmental Sciences is looking to recruit postgraduate research students for the coming academic year. A list of possible research projects has been compiled by academic staff in the School and this can be explored using the search facilities described below. Please note that we also welcome applications from those proposing their own research project. It is anticipated that the majority of successful applicants will start on 1 October each year but some may be able to start at one of the University's other standard entry points (1 January, 1 April and 1 July) . Please contact individual supervisors for details.
