This is a competition funded project through the NERC GW4+ DTP. There is a competitive selection process. This studentship will cover fees, stipend and research costs for UK students and UK residents for 3.5 years.
We are looking for an enthusiastic student with a deep interest in evolutionary biology, and in understanding how populations evolve in nature. An interest in plant ecology, and experience of working with plants would also be an advantage, although is not necessary. All other training will be provided.
