Departmental seminars

We host two regular seminar series during term time, on Tuesdays at 13:00 (an internal speaker, such as a member of staff, postdoctoral or PhD researcher), and on Wednesdays at 14:00 (normally an external speaker). These are usually held in the Sutcliffe Lecture Theatre, room GU01, in the Brian Hoskins Building. Subject to capacity limits, both series are open to all. Click on the links below for the latest seminar schedules. Occasional seminars outside of the regular schedules are normally announced via e-mail within the department.

In addition, on Fridays during term time we host a weekly weather and climate discussion (WCD) meeting:
