Postgraduate Research in Earth and Planetary Science

Group of people hiking

An important objective for the Research Division for Earth & Planetary Science is to foster a healthy, creative environment for research postgraduate student s (RPGs).


In many ways, the creativity, hard work and dedication of our RPG students is the engine that drives our research output. Students are recruited through, word of mouth , personal references, and advertising at international conferences.


Currently, the Division has 47 RPGs from 10 countries. The majority come from mainland China, although we seek enhanced diversity via expanded advertising efforts at international conferences, society websites, and geoscience job boards.


Please visit the Faculty's RPg website for details more details and the available Scholarships especially the Hong Kong PhD Fellowship scheme .
