Lancaster Environment Centre, Rothamsted Research and the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology are all formidable research institutions in their own right, with extensive, contrasting and complementary areas of expertise.
Together, as the Graduate School for the Environment, we have the size, scope and infrastructure to be able to offer an unrivalled level of support to our students – accommodating almost every imaginable environmental research interest.
We can call on a collective pool of hundreds of experts, up and down the UK and from far and wide overseas, to supervise or support your work.
We can provide you with cutting-edge facilities, laboratories, equipment and tools – whether that means our new £4.4 million teaching labs in Lancaster, the Controlled Environment facilities at Rothamsted, or the network of national-scale monitoring platforms and software tools managed by the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology. And that’s to say nothing of the enviable array of field sites we collectively have access to across the world.
We curate the kind of long-term, national-scale data that can fuel the most powerful of research. We provide a range of tools and expertise to make such data more reusable and accessible and we build applications for different audiences to ensure datasets are delivered in the most appropriate way.
As well as being well connected and well appointed, the Graduate School for the Environment is also well funded. We have the size and capabilities to attract financial support for a wide range of fully-funded PhD studentships, for example, opening up a world of possibility to you and the rest of our postgraduate community.
One way or another, the size and scope of our partnership makes the Graduate School for the Environment a world-leading destination for postgraduate researchers. We have the critical mass to help you make an impact.
