Our School provides a stimulating environment for research training and offers opportunities to take up postgraduate studies through Masters by Dissertation (MSD), MPhil and PhD research programmes.
By carrying out your research degree with our School you will be part of a thriving and intellectually stimulating community of academics and research students.
Expertise in our School covers a broad range of important life sciences areas across four research groups; from the impact of climate change on plants and marine ecosystems, to new treatments for cancer and the underlying genetic causes of neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.
With us, you will be supported through your research journey with access to our ‘state of the art’ laboratory and field facilities, funding for professional skills development, and supervision and mentoring to help you take the next steps into an advanced professional career.
"My degree has given me the perfect opportunity to combine my interests in genetics, epigenetics, and how plants respond to their environment. I also enjoyed the academic freedom I had; I was able to propose new directions for my work while being guided by very supportive supervisors. I was able to work with world-leading researchers and had the opportunity to learn a unique skillset. I now have a network to help me find opportunities, as well as the skills to not only do a job, but bring a new perspective to the research."
Throughout the year we may advertise funded PhD and MSD studentships. Details of any available opportunities are listed below. For further information, please contact the Graduate Administrator at email@example.com.
We are providing exciting opportunities for research projects, towards a Master of Science by Dissertation (MSD) in the School of Life Sciences.
These are one-year postgraduate degrees that typically start in October but other start times can be negotiated with the project supervisor(s) (overseas applicants should allow additional time for visa processing). These opportunities do not come with any funding. Further information on fees and funding is available here.
Each of these opportunities falls under one of our research groups.
