Faculty of Environment

The Faculty of Environment, consisting of the School of Earth and Environment, School of Geography and The Institute for Transport Studies, is a world-leading, problem-based and interdisciplinary grouping of Schools with an established international reputation who have exciting visions for addressing global environmental and societal challenges in an integrated manner.

The Faculty’s research and taught portfolio cover all aspects of the Earth, its environment and the way humans interact with it.  We have an excellent track-record of success across EU funding programmes, the UK Research Councils, industrial collaborations and government agencies (globally and locally).  The Faculty of Environment leads major cross-campus interdisciplinary centres including Water@leeds, major Climate Change Centres and a Sustainable Cities Group, and strongly contributes to cross-campus Energy, Culture and Food research topics from multiple perspectives.  The Faculty hosts major national centres in Transport, Atmospheric Science, Climate Change Economics and Policy, Rainforest Ecology, Consumer Data, Polar Observation & Modelling and in Tectonics.

The quality of our research is internationally renowned and the excellence across a wide range of disciplines, including collaborative work between different faculties, provides a dynamic, intellectually-stimulating environment in which to develop an academic career and profile.

We offer a distinctive, integrated suite of undergraduate and postgraduate taught programmes marking Leeds as a national-leader in training of the future generation of environmental leaders and offering exciting opportunities for team-teaching across disciplines and research groups.
