The museum has very well-equipped laboratories for palaeontological and zoological imaging and micropalaeontology. Resources include a laser scanner, several multifocal plane microscopes, and a 3D printer. The research group also has strong links with several external partners, facilitating access to computed tomography and synchrotron beamline facilities.
Researchers actively participate in the Museum’s extensive public engagement programme, and are involved in the development of displays and external exhibitions.
Our research is currently funded by AHRC, BBSRC, the Leverhulme Trust, NERC, the Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851, and the University of Oxford John Fell Fund, among other sources.
We welcome approaches from early-career researchers who might wish to hold independent research fellowships in the museum.
