We offer several taught postgraduate programmes:
- MSc in Applied and Petroleum Micropalaeontology - this is the only taught micropalaeontology masters in the UK and involves comprehensive coverage of the major microfossil groups (e.g., foraminifera, calcareous nannofossils, and pollen and spores) and their application in understanding major changes in global climate.
- MSc Applied Meteorology and Climatology - this course provides comprehensive training in understanding, modelling and prediction of atmospheric processes; as well as the collection, management, supply and application of atmospheric data for the needs of a variety of public and private sectors.
Research-informed teaching is a core part of our ethos, and we have a 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 paleoclimatology, industry, university and international research environments.
