MRes in Climate and Atmospheric Science
School of Earth and Environment, University of Leeds

This 1-year Masters in Research (MRes) course will interest students
looking for Masters-level research training and experience within the
broad subject area of climate and atmospheric science.

The programme targets those wishing to gain intensive research
experience and expand their range of research skills before
progressing to a PhD or a career as a professional researcher. 
Training is provided in the form of a bespoke programme that teaches you 
essential research skills (proposal writing, computing, literature reviews,
fieldwork) and a research apprenticeship under the supervision of 
academic and postdoctoral staff within the School of Earth and 
Environment and related disciplines.

Most students who complete this course go on to having successful 
applications to doctoral training programmes in the UK, EU and USA.

Course highlights:

1) Interact with academics who are at the forefront of major global issues.
Leeds is a leading centre of excellence across both the physical science of 
the climate and atmospheric science, and the resultant socio-economic 
impacts and processes:

2) Develop your research skills – you will be regarded as a researcher in 
the  School and expected to work closely with ICAS staff as well as 
presenting at the annual ICAS Science Conference along with academics 
and doctoral researchers.

3) Continue to a PhD, or move into a research role in industry or government. 
Highly numerate graduates with training in independent research are widely 
sought after in many sectors.

4) The School's £23m building gives you access to world-class research, 
teaching and laboratory facilities, and dedicated computer 
facilities – many of which will be available to you throughout your studies.

5) You will be regarded as a researcher within the School and be expected 
to work closely with ICAS staff as well as presenting at the annual ICAS away 
day along with academic faculty and doctoral researchers.

Programme team
Be taught by staff from across the School, primarily from ICAS. 
Your programme manager is Dr Ryan Neely (ICAS) who also teaches as well 
as regularly supervises your research project and provides tutorial support.

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, Maths, Engineering, Computing or Natural Science).

Applications are accepted up to early August and are processed continuously.
Cohort numbers are limited so apply early to guarantee your spot.

Again, our alumni have gone on to secure competitive PhD (and, subsequently,
postdoctoral and academic positions) at research-intensive UK
institutions. Other alumni have begun successful careers in the UK as 
environmental professionals, amongst a diverse range of other career destinations.
