Course summary

Overview

The Department of Geography provides a range of opportunities for PhD research. We have over 100 doctoral students drawn from across the world, many of whom are funded by national research councils and international organisations. With 50 full-time academic staff, we provide specialist supervision on topics that range from climate change and hazards mapping to risk analysis, geocomputation and urban futures.

We have a vibrant seminar series that brings in guest speakers from universities across the world and run workshops to showcase doctoral research projects. We also provide a full range of training and support for our PhD students, including opportunities to present your research at national and international conferences.

Joint PhDs available: exciting opportunities to gain a joint PhD with the National University of Singapore, Hong Kong University or Humboldt University (Berlin, Germany)

Description:

The Department of Geography has a vibrant community of scholars – most are members of one of five research groups: Urban Futures; Geocomputation; Environmental Dynamics; Risk & Society; and Contested Development. Staff research also ranges well beyond those groups and involves both individual scholarship and colleagues in other institutions, as well as the department.

These groups operate through staff-funded research and PhD student collaboration on research projects. The research themes provide the central focus of our international reputation centre on: cultural, political and social change in cities; urban governance and public policy in cities; urban sustainability; environment and development in low-income locations; monitoring and modelling of terrestrial environmental processes and investigations of the politics of environmental policy. In addition, we have thematic research specialisms in historical geography, geographies of disability, architecture and the built environment, rural development, and remote sensing of the environment.
