The School of Geography offers the opportunity to work at doctoral level alongside academics whose research has been internationally recognised. Researchers in the School include Professor Mark Macklin, whose expertise lies in river systems, global environmental change, and in catchment hazard and pollution issues, Professor of Climate Science and Meteorology, Edward Hanna.
Students from the Physical Geography programme at University of Lincoln can benefit from a supportive academic community, where ideas and experiences are shared with the aim of advancing knowledge.
Lincoln’s physical geographers are working on projects exploring geoarchaeology and environmental history; quaternary environmental change; ecosystem and human health; floods, droughts and climate change; GIS and remote sensing; glaciology and climatology; coastal and marine environments; and large river systems and deltas.
Geography provides a broad range of career opportunities, including roles in the environmental and health sectors, the geographical information systems (GIS) industry, management and financial services, social and environmental consultancy, and teaching.
Potential areas of work are aligned with the School’s current research strengths and specialisms and include (but are not limited to):
- Alluvial geoarchaeology and environmental history
- Biogeochemistry, ecosystems and human health
- Extreme hydrological events (floods and droughts) and climate change
- GIS and remote sensing for assessment of water-related diseases
- Greenland ’s ice sheet mass balance/glaciology
- Mining impacts on freshwater, coastal, and marine environments
- Morphodynamics of large rivers, coasts, and deltas
- Quaternary environmental change.
