The greatest challenges of the coming 50 years will be environmental.
Our work in the Institute of Biological and Environmental Sciences is addressing the fundamental biological consequences of environmental change.
As you will see on our web pages, we have significant international expertise in understanding and modelling the soil/microbe/plant interface, the population and physiological responses of animals and plants from habitats as diverse as the deep ocean and tropical forests, along with environmental effects on mammalian physiology, the immune functions of fish and fundamental relationships between diseases and their vectors.
Our mission is to grow the quantity and quality of our research over the coming decade by recruiting top researchers in these fields at all academic levels. If that describes you, and our research activity excites you, then please contact me or any of our staff to discuss joining us.
