MRes in Vertebrate Palaeontology: University of Southampton, Ocean and Earth Sciences<>

The new MRes in Vertebrate Palaeontology at the University of Southampton is now accepting applicants for September 2012. This course offers you the chance to work on specimen-based research projects (10 month duration) drawn from a portfolio of contacts with local Museums and collections, including Dinosaur Isle (Sandown, Isle-of-Wight) and the Jurassic Coast World Heritage site. The small but tightly-focussed taught component of the MRes includes: (1) a bespoke fieldcourse to key sites on the Isle-of-Wight, led by local personalities, collectors and geologists; (2) a detailed grounding in vertebrate anatomy and evolution; and (3) in-depth immersion in current topics in vertebrate palaeobiology. You will also have the chance to dip in to other courses taught across the University of Southampton (Biosciences, Ocean and Earth Sciences and Engineering). The south of England ranks among the most productive fossil-bearing areas globally for Jurassic and Cretaceous vertebrates and the University of Southampton boasts one of the UK's leading Earth Science research facilities (<>) housed in the National Oceanography Centre (<>).
