The Applied Geophysics group focuses on the characterisation of the earth's subsurface at a range of scales using a varied range of geophysical methods that find a diverse range of applications including, but not limited to, oil and gas exploration, approaches to long-term carbon sequestration in subsurface reservoirs, geo-archaeology, seeking novel sources of clean energy (eg geothermal).
<p>We are a community of scientists developing geophysical theory and practice for the quantitative investigation of target sub-surfaces. These targets are truly diverse, ranging from understanding the detail of lab-scale samples through to crustal-scale structures that influence basin evolution.</p> <p>Our community comprises a core of academic staff and post-doctoral researchers with a growing cohort of postgraduate researchers. We welcome enquiries from prospective postgraduate rearchers interested in a PhD in applied geophysics.</p> <h5>Why do your PhD at Leeds? </h5> <p><strong>Study in an active research environment </strong><br /> Studying your PhD with us means you’ll be working in a professional research environment, using UK-leading facilities to bring your project to life – alongside active researchers who are at the forefront of their area. <br /> <strong>A strong network of support </strong><br /> The Leeds Doctoral College connects our community of researchers and can offer you the guidance, services and opportunities you’ll need to get the most out of your PhD. <br /> <strong>Close industry links </strong><br /> Our partnerships and links to companies and academic institutions give you the opportunity to network at industry talks, seminars and conferences, building connections that'll benefit your next steps after you complete your PhD. <br /> <strong>Professional skills development </strong><br /> We think of the whole picture at Leeds.
