Biology research projects

We offer a wide range of research projects across the whole spectrum of modern biology, from molecular genetics and biochemistry to ecology and evolution.

If you would like to propose your own research project, we would love to hear from you. Most supervisors will be happy to work with you to devise a project that encompasses your own research interest while still fitting in with the direction of their own research group.
