This MRes is designed for students with a passion for the diversity of life on earth, and who wish to be trained in cutting-edge biological research.
New technologies such as next-generation DNA sequencing are revolutionising biology.
There are also huge amounts of biodiversity data to be collated and meta-analysed to respond to urgent research needs in a world of rapid global changes.
This course will offer an intensive one-year full-time programme designed to provide you with postgraduate-level training in research skills.
Uniquely, it will start with seven-week intensive training modules in the latest developments of informatics and genomics for whole-organism research.
This is followed by a single nine-month research project in the Division of Ecology and Evolution.
Project opportunities include genetics, conservation, tropical and environmental biology; they will either be purely analytical or have strong field and/or laboratory components.
It will also provide you with a solid grounding in a range of professional and transferable skills and the opportunity to make a more informed decision on the area of research and specific PhD project you wish to pursue in the future.
It will be ideal training for those who wish to pursue a career in academic, government or non-governmental organisations engaged in research into biodiversity.
Candidates will normally be expected to hold a good first degree in a science subject (at least an Upper Second Class Honours - 2:1 - degree) from a UK university or an equivalent overseas qualification.
