3 PhD Projects available in the Team GB PhD research cluster: Competitors, Community, Climate

Today, our commitment to research is stronger than ever. The University of Hull ranks among the top 50 institutions in the UK for ‘research power’ (REF 2014) and our Research Institutes – focusing on health, slavery and emancipation, culture, logistics, the environment – work together to seek solutions for some of the biggest challenges facing the world. We are also undertaking cutting-edge interdisciplinary research within each of our four Faculties.
