PhD Positions

A list of PhD topics for students hoping to start PhDs in 2018 at the Department of Earth Sciences in Cambridge has now been published online:

List of PhD topics for October 2018

These studentships are advertised under one of the 3 interdisciplinary themes of the Cambridge NERC DTP in Earth System Science (Climate, Solid Earth and Biological). 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. 

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
