Our academic experts
We have an international team of academics ranging from early career researchers to full professors who are world leaders in their fields of research.
For further information on their areas expertise please see our staff list.
Stimulating learning environment
In keeping with our research themes, our office is suitably situated at Ryton Organic Gardens. Some of the teaching is conducted on site giving students hands-on experiential learning. Campus based courses offer opportunities to students to interact with their peers and access the extensive university facilities.
Support cohort building
We support cohort building through a variety of activities including dedicated administrative support, access to facilities, funding of student led events and our research seminar series.
As a Doctoral Training Centre we offer bespoke training to our PhD students. Tailored work shops are run every year taking advantage of the breadth of knowledge and varied research areas of our staff. A Summer School also takes place with a strong focus on writing as well as sessions on surviving the PhD and time management.
New taught Masters programme
We are excited to announce the launch of a new programme entitled MSc Agroecology, Water and Food Sovereignty (title subject to validation) which will commence in September 2018. The programme will encompass enhanced knowledge from our now larger team of experts and will be informed by recent research. This will replace the MSc Agroecology and Food Security which will run for the last time in the September 2017-2018 academic year. Please check back here for details which will be published very soon.
An internship is a great way to gain an insight into working in a professional environment and an understanding of whether this aligns with your interests and aspirations. You can benefit from learning from our researchers whilst developing your skills and possibly gain credit for the time spent.
If you are interested in joining us as an intern at CAWR please get in touch; still unsure if this is for you? The Student Voices tab on this page includes blog posts from previous internships on their experiences at CAWR.
