Inspiration of PhD

Understanding the evolution of Earth and life over the last 4.5 billion years is both a fascinating topic and essential knowledge. Scientists in the Department of Earth Sciences undertake world-class research in geology, geochemistry, geophysics, geobiology/palaeobiology, planetary science and current issues such as global change. This provides our postgraduate students with a wealth of knowledge and experience to draw from, so that they can build a solid foundation for their future careers in science. Our postgraduate students, like our staff scientists, also visit important field sites worldwide and perform experiments using cutting-edge instrumentation. Our postgraduate programs aim to produce well-rounded Earth scientists, with a global perspective by encouraging creative and critical thinking, and developing their capability for making original discoveries.

How to apply

Please visit the Graduate School website of the University of Hong Kong (http://www.gradsch.hku.hk) for information on application requirements and procedures. Your application will need to include a research proposal to demonstrate your research focus and capability. It is essential for prospective students to contact potential supervisor(s) ahead of application submission in order to determine if he/she/they are interested in admitting a new student and to discuss project details. Making timely contact with a potential supervisor ensures that your application is complete and will save you time if the staff member(s) concerned have no vacancies.
