We have a strong history of supporting PhD students in the Environmental Extremes Lab and see our research students as integral to our vision and success moving forward.  Our priority is for new PhD students to align to our existing research themes,  but we are open to new ideas and lines of research enquiry. For information from the Doctoral College on the PhD programme, details of our graduates and supervisors and the application process itself, please follow the link here.

Within the Environmental Extremes Lab, our research students have the opportunity to:

  • work within dynamic and supportive research teams, often that includes collaboration with external partners
  • present and participate in our monthly seminars (NB. One of our more experienced PhD students leads the seminar programme)
  • receive funding to cover the cost of presenting at one national and one international conference during their PhD registration
  • contribute to the environmental extremes taught modules within the undergraduate and postgraduate degrees
  • take part in meetings, activities and events that link to the public, communities and, or industry
  • join research funding bid teams to develop skills on sourcing external grants
  • be part of a vibrant research student community that is very supportive, works hard, but has fun as well!

The career map below shows where our Environmental Extremes Lab PhD students have gone on to since graduating.
