Postgraduate Research

Our research spans the biological scales - from genes to proteins to whole organisms, populations and ecosystems. We offer PhD projects in a wide range of topics, brought together by our four research themes. Our postgraduate students enjoy a first class experience with strong supervision and mentorship in an exciting research environment. Each year we advertise PhD projects funded by NERC, BBSRC, MRC and international research organisations as well as industry and charities. If you would like to propose your own research project for a PhD, MPhil or MRes, please contact potential supervisors amongst the academic staff.
