MPhil projects

An MPhil is a stand-alone programme that allows students to undertake a research programme over one year (full-time) or two years (part-time). If you are interested you should discuss possible supervision and research direction with a suitable member of staff.

PhD/post-doctoral opportunities

We are currently offering PhD projects in the following areas. Please contact us for more information.

  • Genomics of invasive or declining species – species introductions are an acute global problem as are declines in some endemics. We offer opportunities to study genomic changes associated with the colonization of new environments as well as the impacts of species declines on genomic diversity. (Prof Richard Brown)
  • We can offer a broad range of research topics about mammalian evolution and vertebrate palaeobiology. Our research includes the application of cutting-edge techniques to fundamental questions on how animals and humans evolved in relation to environmental changes. We focus on skulls, long bones and teeth whose size and shape variation provide key insights into functional adaptation of extant and fossil organisms. (Dr Carlo Meloro)

See the PhD studies page for information about our current projects.
