Course summary

As a PhD student in Ecology and environmental management at the University of Brighton, you will join a team of experts whose research informs real world change locally, nationally and globally.

Our interests feed the university's research Centre for Aquatic Environments, one of the university’s Centres of Research and Enterprise Excellence (COREs), and the Environment and Public Health Research and Enterprise Group (REG), offering opportunities for supervision across a wide range of interdisciplinary approaches to ecology, environment, sustainability and environmental pollution.

From investigating interactions between large mammals and human populations, to developing new remote sensing approaches to assess global forest biomass, our ecology and environmental management staff and PhD students are at the forefront of global research challenges. We are also working to identify the impacts of climate change and invasive species on global wetlands and assessing the factors that influence the spread of zoonotic disease.

Most of our work has real-world application. Data generated by researchers in our Centre for Aquatic Environments is being used, for example, to assess the impact of run-of-river hydroelectric schemes on freshwater ecosystems, and to develop suitable conservation strategies for the protection and reintroduction of water voles across the UK.
