About

Masters by Research (MRes) programmes allow students to undertake a substantial amount of independent research while gaining 20 credits of transferable skills training. 

Overview

We have excellent facilities for genomics and post genomics including micro-arrays, sequencing, proteomics, imaging, mouse and zebrafish transgenics, model organisms (bacteria, yeast, worms, flies, arachnids, fish, amphibians, crustaceans and mammals) and bioinformatics.

We also foster interactions and discussions of current research with several internal themed discussion groups which include postgraduates, postdoctoral fellows and academic staff. We provide an environment for pursuing research in a fruitful and productive fashion leading to further development as scientists.   

Facilities include:

  • study and social space 
  • networked computers
  • a bookable seminar room
  • kitchen facilities
  • a programme of social events

 

Programme Structure

Research projects in this area will centre on adaptive decision-making in animals in a range of contexts, including: 

  • trade-offs between social and sexual behaviour, learning and other components of life history, such as immune function and disease resistance
  • associative and higher order learning in invertebrates
  • effects of genetic differences in social behaviour on population dynamics in nematodes
  • the evolution of insect pollinator systems
