Course info


An Introduction to the Department

The Department of Meteorology has a long and established track record of internationally renowned research, working with a wide variety of industrial and academic partners to achieve significant social and economic benefits.

We are part of the larger School of Mathematical, Physical and Computational Sciences, which includes several national research centres. We have an active community of 50+ PhD students.

As a Meteorology PhD student, you will work closely together with your supervisors. In addition, you will have a monitoring committee to provide support and follow your progress in 6-monthly meetings. You will have a very exciting range of opportunities to work with other researchers across Reading's Environment Theme and to take part in multi-disciplinary training activities that are organised by the department.


Our PhD students go on to work in academia as postdoctoral researchers, but also quickly find employment in public sector policy and research institutions, and industries impacted by changes in weather and climate such as weather forecasting, risk analysis, insurance and re-insurance, oil extraction and mining, and even sport organisations. Our training in mathematical and programming techniques and problem-solving skills also open opportunities in finance and IT.
