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

This 1-year Masters in Research (MSc(Res)) course will interest students
looking for Masters-level research training and experience within the
broad subject area of cold-region science, including cold-region climate
processes. Possible research areas include process glaciology,
palaeoglaciology, Quaternary science, geochronology, oceanic and
atmospheric processes, climate reconstruction, climatic change, process
geomorphology, and long-term landscape evolution, or any other aspect of
cold-region science.

The programme targets those wishing to gain an intensive research
experience and expand their range of research skills prior to
progressing to a PhD. Training is provided in the form of a research
apprenticeship within the Ice and Climate Research (ICERS) cluster of
academic and postdoctoral staff, plus PhD and Masters students, with
students carrying out a major Research Project under supervision of a
team of ICERS staff. Another key feature of the programme is a summer
Field Course module, which has for many years been located in Svalbard,
but other field locations are sometimes visited that reflect the
interests and experience of our staff, including Western Greenland.

We invite applications from students who have at least a good
Upper-Second Class undergraduate level degree from a UK University, or
an international equivalent, in a relevant subject area (for example,
Physical Geography, Environmental / Earth / Ocean Science, Geology,
Physics, or Natural Science).

Our alumni have gone on to secure competitive PhD (and, subsequently,
postdoctoral and academic positions) at research-intensive UK
institutions that specialise in cold-regions research, and at
institutions further afield, including Norway and Sweden. Other alumni
have begun successful careers in the UK as environmental professionals,
amongst a diverse range of other career destinations.

Our next Open Day is on Thursday 8th February and we are accepting
applications for September 2018 now.
