We supervise PhD students whose interests match the expertise we have in our main research areas.

Biodiversity and Conservation

Our biodiversity and conservation group investigates the ecology and evolution of organisms in their natural environment to inform land management practices and environmental policy decision-making across a range of environmental issues

Agri-environment

Our agri-environment group undertakes research in plant and insect physiology; biochemistry; and molecular biology in relation to sustainable agriculture and the environment. Current research projects include: mathematical modelling to predict the impact of changes in the agri-environment; molecular techniques to develop crop resistance to pests and diseases; and mechanisms of plant adaptation to drought, salinity and atmospheric pollutants.

Microbiology

Our microbiology group investigates processes of commercial and environmental importance including: natural products discovery; biofuel production; creation of novel antimicrobials; bioremediation of polluted environments; and host-pathogen interactions in a range of diseases including those in plants and coral reef environments.

For more information about staff specialisms please visit the website for the School of Biology. Applicants can put forward their own research proposal, or alternatively they can follow one of the projects suggested on the School website.
