Our research institutes and groups
Our research is carried out across our three interdisciplinary research institutes. However, much of our research is cross-cutting and collaborative, enabling us to tackle complex global challenges. Each institute is also host to several research groups.
Our research institutes support our research themes and provide an underlying organisational structure for academic and research staff support.
- Earth and Planetary Sciences Institute
- Geography and the Lived Environment Institute
- Global Change Institute
Each institute manages a portfolio of funding and specialist facilities while creating and nurturing a community of research staff and students. They provide a forum for the development of ideas and collaboration, as well as an environment for training, development and mentoring of research students and early career researchers.
There are also a number of research groups within each institute. Due to the interdisciplinary nature of our research, academic staff may belong to one or more groups across the institutes.
Each of the following research institutes is a major centre of expertise.
