Program description

Awarded by: The University of Edinburgh

As a research student at the Institute of Evolutionary Biology you will join the UK’s largest and most dynamic community of researchers in the field.

With about 30 research groups, which includes about 50 PhD students, you’ll benefit from a busy programme of seminars, journal clubs and other research-led activities and will be encouraged to publish your findings. You’ll also take part in student-led courses and talks.

We have an enviable record in academic career success. Our institute reflects the School-wide figure of 84 per cent for students achieving academic posts after they complete their PhD.

Researchers are working on everything from viral evolution and host-parasite co-evolution to natural selection in the wild and plant conservation genetics.
