Biochemistry

Our research interests range from the most basic chemical building blocks of life to studies of how the brain generates behaviour and how insect societies are organised. We offer PhD/MPhil courses and welcome students with their own projects falling within our research interests. Throughout your studies, you take part in laboratory meetings, journal clubs and a weekly seminar series. We encourage all students to participate in national and international scientific meetings. The School offers full support to all research students by monitoring their progress in the form of annual reviews, informal meetings and mid-year reports (year 1). The annual postgraduate research colloquium brings doctoral students and faculty together for a wider discussion of research within the School. All 3rd-year doctoral students give a talk on their research, and all second-year students submit a poster depicting the key aims and objectives, methods and findings of their project. We aim to ensure you have the best possible research experience. The relationships between supervisors and research students are among the most rewarding of academic partnerships.

Entry requirements

A 1st- or upper 2nd-Class undergraduate Honours degree in a relevant subject.
