New Scientist is the world’s most popular weekly science and technology magazine. Her website, apps and publications cover international news from a scientific point of view and ask questions with the biggest picture of life, the universe and what it means to be human. If anyone in the world has a good idea, you’ll read it in New Scientist.
Since the magazine was created in 1956 for “anyone interested in scientific discovery and its social implications”, it has expanded to include events in Britain, the United States and Australia, including New Scientist Live, the world’s largest festival of science. New Scientist is based in London, UK, with offices in the US and Australia.
The Higher School of Earth Sciences accepts approximately 120 students from all over the world. We have a rich and integrated community of doctoral students. Our students are regularly recognized by national and international awards, and most continue to research positions at the postdoctoral level.
As someone with a PHD in Religion and Ethics, I am especially concerned with the way in which Ethical judgments may heavily influence the success of applications that develop from many avenues of biological research. Sequencing the human genome, gene localization and identity, gene therapy, the creation and release of genetically engineered organisms, bioengineered pharmaceuticals, and ecosystem management of marine, freshwater and terrestrial environments, are all current and lively areas of applied research that call for cooperation and partnerships between biologists and many other professional and cultural groups in the community.
