This programme allows individuals to carrying out a research project in one of the leading and most productive research Universities for molecular cell biology in Europe. Our outstanding bioscience research was recognised by its very high rankings in REF 2014, with Dundee rated as the top University for Biological Sciences in the UK.
This course, supported by world-renowned experts from the School of Life Sciences, trains the next generation at the forefront of international science. You will have the opportunity to select a research project from a variety of thematic areas of research.
Throughout this course, you will be part of our collaborative working environment and have access to outstanding shared facilities such as microscopy and proteomics. You will develop an advanced level of knowledge on your topic of interest as well as the ability to perform independent research in the topic area. Alongside basic science training in experimental design, data handling and research ethics, we will help you to develop skills in critical assessment and communication. This will be supported by workshops in scientific writing, presentation skills, ethics, laboratory safety, statistics, public engagement and optional applied bioinformatics.
For much of the additional training aspects of the course you will be part of the wider international postgraduate community in the School of Life Sciences. We have around 180 students from over 20 countries. You will also be invited to be part of our postgraduate student-led association, who run numerous events from an annual lecture to careers seminars together with a range of regular social events.
