We offer a bespoke Palaeontology and Geology BSc/MSci programme as well as the only taught postgraduate programme in micropalaeontology in the UK - the MSc in Applied and Petroleum Micropalaeontology.
Research-led teaching is a core part of our ethos, and we have an outstanding track record of helping our undergraduate and Masters students publish their research projects, present their work at conferences, and obtain funded PhD positions.
The group includes a large, diverse and vibrant community of highly talented and motivated doctoral researchers, working on a broad range of field-, lab- and desk-based PhD projects. PhD opportunities are available annually through the CENTA doctoral training programme, and may also be advertised on an ad hoc basis as funding allows. We are always keen to talk to potential students about opportunities. We have an excellent track record of training our doctoral researchers for careers in palaeobiology, in museum, university and international research environments.
