The Faculty of Natural Sciences is committed to interdisciplinary research and teaching, both internally across the College and in partnership with external academic and industrial collaborators.

We aim to educate the scientists of the future, to make fundamental discoveries in the physical, mathematical and life sciences, to integrate research across these areas in a multidisciplinary manner and to apply these discoveries to the benefit of humanity.

Research themes

Our work explores the following research themes:



Research showcases and seminars

Our seminars and showcases are open to everyone. They're a great opportunity to find out more about the diverse and cutting-edge research taking place across the Faculty, and a chance to meet colleagues and network in an informal environment.

Research Showcase 2020: the student perspective

The 2020 Showcase, like most events this year, had to be delivered online because of the COVID-19 pandemic, so our PhD student speakers pre-recorded their talks. We caught up with some them to find out more about their experience presenting at the Showcase, their reflections on why opportunities like this are important, and their top tips for giving academic talks. You can also find out more about their research and watch their talks again. Find out more about the PhD perspective and view the student poster competition submissions.
