Project Description

I am interested in understanding the decisions and life history choices that individuals make when they interact with other organisms. I consider a wide range of taxa and relationships, including parents and offspring, plants and pollinators, parasites and their hosts, and animals living and interacting in social groups. This work is done using a mixture of analytical, computational and empirical techniques. You can read more about my work here: http://seis.bris.ac.uk/~frsar/phd_projects.html

I would be very happy to consider applications by candidates with an appropriate background (either an appropriate biological or mathematical degree) who are interested in exploring either theoretical and/or empirical questions about how organisms interact. As well as being involved with your own project work, the School of Biological Sciences and the University of Bristol offer many excellent opportunities for investigating animal behaviour, and you would join a thriving community of researchers and postgraduates interacting across many of the departments within the University. Furthermore, from January 2014, the School of Biological Sciences will move into a new £54m Life Sciences building, which will create unprecedented opportunities for our students.
