Dear all,

Please kindly send on this advertisement to final-year students in
your department or university!

MSc(Res) Polar and Alpine Change
Department of Geography, University of Sheffield, UK

I write with information about this 1-year Masters of Research
(MSc(Res)) course offered by our university, which may interest
applicants looking for Masters-level research training within the broad
subject area of cold-region science. Possible research areas include
alpine and ice sheet glaciology, glacial or cold-regions geomorphology,
polar or alpine climatology, cold-regions oceanography, dating of
cold-region landforms (e.g. using luminescence or OSL thermochronology),
long-term cold-region landscape evolution, or any other aspect of
cold-region science.

The programme targets those wishing to gain research experience and
skills before progressing to a PhD, and is founded on the expertise of
the group of Ice and Climate Researchers in my department. Training is
delivered via a major Research Project that the student carries out with
regular supervision. Another key feature of the programme is a
Field-Course module visiting Svalbard, Norway for 4-5 weeks in the summer.

We invite applicants who perform at least at good Upper-Second Class
undergraduate level (and show First Class potential) from a UK
University, or with an international equivalent, in subjects such as
Physical Geography, Environmental / Earth / Ocean Sciences, Geology,
Physics, and Natural Science. Applicants are asked to show evidence of
engagement with and/or aptitude in geoscientific research.

A great many of our graduates from the former MSc version of the course
have moved on successfully to PhD studies in glaciology, climate
science, biogeochemistry, and planetary science.

Our next Open Day is on Friday 28th April 2017 and the application
round for 2017/18 entry is open.

Details of the course can be found at:
