Find a PhD Project

The Graduate School of the National Oceanography Centre Southampton (GSNOCS) is a centre of research excellence. We are a large, international, scientifically diverse and genuinely interdisciplinary community with about 200 PhD students with backgrounds in biology, chemistry, computer science, Earth science, engineering, environmental sciences, geography, geology, geophysics, mathematics, meteorology, natural sciences, oceanography and physics. 

I chose University of Southampton for my PhD because of its international research reputation. I am working alongside researchers who are world leaders in their field, and gaining a really solid foundation for a future academic career.
