Course summary

Overview

Our expertise spans the dynamics of the Earth and planets, the materials that compose them and their properties, present and past processes occurring at their surfaces, the evolution of life and the environment, and the applied geosciences of natural hazards pollution and resources.

Careers

Recent graduates have chosen either to pursue a career in academia as postdoctoral researchers or seek employment in the oil, gas and mineral extraction industries. These have included positions as micropalaeontologists, geologists, hydrogeologists, stratigraphers, sedimentologists, geophysicists, remote sensing experts in the public sector (Environment Agency, National Physics Laboratory, NASA) and private sector (Badley Ashton Reservoir Geoscience).

Employability

Many of our recent graduate research students have moved straight on to postdoctoral research positions at UCL and elsewhere that can then be used as a platform for beginning an academic career. Many others continue their research in government or non-governmental agencies as well as in industry.
