MPhil/PhD in Biology

Join us for your MPhil or PhD in Biology. Our research-active academic staff will support you. Supervision is available in a number of research areas.

Ecology and conservation

Our Ecology and Conservation Research Group works to understand patterns observed in nature Рspecies and habitats. This often includes anthropogenic effects.

We collaborate with a variety of organisations concerned with species and habitat conservation, including statutory responsibility. We work with research partners and conservation practitioners from the UK and across the globe.

Biological, clinical and environmental systems modelling

The Biological, clinical and environmental systems modelling group focuses on analysing the structure and dynamics of complex biological and clinical systems. We have a specific interest in investigating spatially and temporally heterogeneous processes in biology. We are driven by practical problem solving through the use of modelling.

Applied and environmental biology

We conduct research on organisms and processes of commercial and environmental importance. Our experimental approaches include genomics, molecular biology, biochemistry and physiology.

As Biology PhD student you’ll play an important role in our active research portfolio.
