Research Opportunities


The Department of Meteorology typically has over 100 active PostDoctoral researchers and around 90 PhD students at any time, supported by over 60 permanent staff. We therefore strongly support postdocs from both inside and outside the department who are becoming independent to apply for Research Fellowships to come to Reading to set their own research agendas.

Email us at to enquire further about our PhD programmes.


We welcome visitors from all over the world at a variety of levels. Our Visitor Programme aims to enhance the research capabilities of the Department of Meteorology by supporting visits that:

  • Strengthen existing, or develop new, collaborative links at the national and international level
  • Broaden the research interests of the Department through the provision of high quality visiting research lecturers


Keep an eye on this page and the main University of Reading pages for upcoming opportunities.

We are a world leading research centre, at the forefront of climate and weather research, and each year we host students on work experience and research placements as well providing a wealth of public engagement activities.

Keep your eye out for future Meteorology Taster Days.

The aim is to give an introduction into the subject and provide an experience of career options and studying Meteorology for KS5 (A/ AS level) students studying science, physics and maths, and considering a physics/maths related course at University.
