I have supervised PhD and MRes students with fuding from a number of sources. Most Studentships are now allocated through Doctoral Training Partnerships. If you are interested in applying, please get in touch with me in advance.
The London Interdisciplinary Biosciences Consortium (LIDo) is one of the largest BBSRC funded Doctoral Training Partnerships, and covers most of the research active London Universities, including UCL. It offers ~25+ fully funded 4-year Studentships annually, across the whole range of the Life Sciences, including genetics and evolutionary biology. Students with backgrounds in mathematics, engineering and physics are encouraged to apply, as well as those with a biological background.
CLOSING DATE FRIDAY 22ND JANUARY 2016
The London NERC Doctoral Training Partnership covers a broad range of environmental research at nine of London's research Universities. The partnership is lead by UCL. One of the key research themes is Evolution and Adaptation: understanding past and present evolutionary processes, biological interactions, selective pressures generated by the environment, fitness relationships, extinction events, and the impact of selection, drift, mutation and migration on the genetic composition of populations, using evolutionary and population genetics, evolutionary theory, genomic analysis, palaeobiology, palaeontology, systematics and taxonomy.
CLOSING DATE FRIDAY 10TH JANUARY 2016
UCL CoMPLEX MRes
CoMPLEX is UCL's centre for interdisciplinary science, bringing life and medical scientists together with mathematicians, physical scientists, computer scientists, and engineers to tackle the challenges arising from complexity in biology and medicine. CoMPLEX runs the MRes Modelling Biological Complexity - students are trained in biological complexity, mathematical modelling of biological systems, and advanced experimental techniques. Typically students have backgrounds in mathematics, engineering or physics, although some with life sciences degress also apply. Most students progress to take PhDs in the biological sciences.
