The School of Biological Sciences has an active and expanding research programme based on the following three research centres:
We provide a stimulating environment for research training, and currently have a lively community of some 50 research students from many countries. The School offers a two-year MPhil and a three-year PhD, both by research. We also have a one-year MSc programme combining research and formal instruction. Applicants should have, or expect to be awarded, a First or Upper Second Class Honours Degree or MSc in an appropriate biological discipline.
Research projects and supervisors
All members of academic staff can accept suitably qualified PhD students who we select for our studentships, or who have alternative means of support. To learn more about the research interests and activities of our staff, please visit the web pages of our three research centres above, and our research staff directory. Here you will be able to see a brief description of their research. Once you have identified a potential supervisor, email them to discuss possible projects, your suitability and if they have space in their lab to accommodate you. A full list of our current projects is also shown below.
In order for us to consider your application you must have identified, contacted and agreed a project with a Supervisor. Having done that you should proceed with the online application. Here you must state the full name of the supervisor and key words of the agreed project title.
