Overview

Researchers in the School of Biological Sciences conduct cutting-edge research across a broad range of biological disciplines, including genomics, biotechnology, cell biology, sensory biology, animal behaviour and evolution, population biology, host-disease interactions and ecosystem services.

We offer two research programmes, a PhD and an MSc by research, in many aspects of biology. We have a lively postgraduate community of approximately 150 research students. Our stimulating environment and excellent graduate school training and support provide opportunities to develop your future career.

Careers

Many postgraduate students choose a higher degree because they enjoy their subject and subsequently go on to work in a related area.

Postgraduate study is often a requirement for becoming a researcher, scientist, academic journal editor and for work in some public bodies or private companies. Around 60 per cent of biological sciences doctoral graduates continue in research.

We have a strong track record in supporting the careers of young researchers by helping them to find post-doctoral positions or develop fellowship applications.
