Environmental Science MPhil

Course Description

Course Overview

Our environmental science research is multidisciplinary, including subjects ranging from biology to geography and geosciences. Supported by the global outlook and impact of the Newcastle Institute for Sustainability, you will have access to international experts, the latest facilities and a unique research support package to ensure your future success.

Research Areas

MPhil/PhD supervision is normally available in the following areas:

Applied and environmental biology
We conduct research on organisms and processes of commercial and environmental importance, embracing experimental approaches that encompass genomics, molecular biology, biochemistry and physiology. Our research provides evidence for the underlying molecular and physiological processes that affect animal behaviour and physiology.

Environmental change and management
We study long-term system evolution and change, and develop knowledge relating to the Earth's surface and the processes that form its structure and drive its function. Human behaviour and how it can impact on these systems and influence their sustainable management is also studied. You will be part of either the Quaternary Research Group or the Earth Surface Processes Research Group.

Geoscience research at Newcastle is focussed on: Biogeochemistry, with particular strength in microbial ecology, mineralogy, organic, inorganic and isotope geochemistry; Geoenergy, reflecting a balance between fossil fuels as a critical energy resource and the move towards a lower carbon global economy.

Training and Skills

As a research student you will receive a tailored package of academic and administrative support to ensure you maximise your research and future career. The academic information is in the programme profile and you will be supported by our doctoral training centres, Faculty Training Programmes and Research Student Support Team.
