List of PhD topics for October 2020

These studentships are advertised under one of the 3 interdisciplinary themes of the Cambridge C-CLEAR DTP in Earth System Science (Climate, Life and Earth). A listing which only shows the projects in the Department of Earth Sciences is available here, but there may be other projects in other departments included on the DTP website which are of interest to you. 

There are also fully-funded studentships available at the BPI Institute.

We welcome research enquiries from those working for first degrees in Earth Science subjects, physics, chemistry, mathematics, materials, biology and related subjects. Most research studentships lead to the PhD degree.  We are also happy to devise projects with you, if you have specific interests that we share. 

For question related specifically to the project please contact the relevant supervisor directly. For more general information email
