PhD students - general enquiries

We always welcome contact from students interested in PhD studentships. If you would like to work with us, email the relevant group member with details of your interests and experience. Studentships typically become available between Christmas and Easter, and we suggest you get in touch as soon as possible to stand a chance of obtaining funding. Enquiries from students who already have funding, or who plan to apply to an external funding organisation (e.g. foreign government), are welcome at any time.

Masters by research (MRes)

We welcome applicants for our MRes courses in Ecology, Animal Behaviour and Conservation Biology. These courses centre on a major research project, designed in collaboration with a specific supervisor, and also contain modules in generic research skills. The idea is to equip students with the skills needed to enter a career in ecological or behavioural research. If you are interested, you should read about our research on these pages, select the member of staff whose interests match yours most closely, and contact them by email. Tell us a bit about your background and what kinds of research excite you, and we can discuss possible projects. You can find out more about the MRes scheme here.
