Biology PhD and MPhil Supervision

PhD and MPhil supervision in areas of Biology are split between academics in the Department of Genetics and the Department of Neuroscience, Psychology and Behaviour; search below for areas that are compatible with the research interests of their academic staff.

Use the links below to see the research themes within Genetics and Neuroscience, Psychology and Behaviour.  You should then and identify the research theme you would like to work in and one or two members of staff within that theme whose research interests are closest to your own:


What if my research interests do not match the staff interests listed?

It is important that the area you want to work in is broadly compatible with our research interests - otherwise we may not be able to accept your application.

However, please do not feel we will not be interested if there is not an exact match. It is sometimes possible to be flexible, so please contact the departments for further advice.
