PhD Topics


PhD Studentships for 2014 Start

The PhD topics available for competitive application, are all eligible for support by research council quota awards, and in some cases by alternative funding arrangements; some are also supported by CASE status. Whilst the topics illustrate a cross-section of active research within the Department of Earth Sciences at UCL, the list is not exhaustive and we also welcome enquiries from students who wish to formulate their own topics.
If you are interested in applying for a PhD in our Department, please direct your initial enquiry to the Graduate Tutor. If you are already interested in a specific topic, please direct your first contact to the named supervisor (or co-supervisor). In either case, when you decide to complete an official UCL PhD application, please ensure that you also send a copy of your application simultaneously to the Department Graduate Tutor, for our internal records.

PhD Studentships Suggestions

We are always pleased to hear from students themselves who may have a clear idea of what they wish to do for a PhD. The first course of action is normally to identify a member of staff whose expertise lies in the appropriate area and contact them directly. If you are unsure about who to contact, please contact the Departmental Graduate Tutor.
