Doctoral research areas

The University of Reading supports nationally and internationally recognised research across the life sciences, environmental & physical sciences, economics, business & social sciences, and arts & humanities.

In addition to the research undertaken in individual disciplines, we have identified a number of interdisciplinary areas where we have particular research strengths and can make a significant impact on the major challenges facing the world today. Many of these areas have exciting PhD opportunities.

Visit the School and Department websites listed here to find out more about the research subject areas available to you.
