About the Project
Evolutionary biology is underpinned by models for the evolution of species and their traits. The growing body of phylogenetic information, as well as increases in computational power allows us to develop and test novel models and theories of evolution. Our work has developed computational models for the evolution of interactions between species, as well as for spatially and temporally varying rates of evolution. We apply these models to understand adaptive radiations as well as for forecasting species’ responses to changing environments. Training includes developing skills in programming, statistics and data management.
Science Graduate School
As a PhD student in one of the science departments at the University of Sheffield, you will get access to training opportunities of the Science Graduate School designed to support your career development by helping you gain professional skills that are essential in all areas of science. You will be able to learn how to recognise good research and research behaviour, improve your communication abilities and experience the breadth of technologies that are used in academia, industry and many related careers.
