I currently teach courses in igneous petrology, volcanology and igneous petrogenesis to all four years of the undergraduate course. I am also involved in course design and delivery for Oxford's NERC-funded Doctoral Training Partnership in Environmental Research.
Post-graduate research in Volcanology at the University of Oxford
We are always interested in recruiting graduate students in volcanology. The main applications round is usually in the autumn, with many university scholarship deadlines in mid January.
