Understanding the complexity of living organisms requires new tools and approaches to explain how their cells and tissues work together and are regulated; systems biology is that subject. We have a number of systems and synthetic biology PhD opportunities available for application, both in the College of Life Sciences and Medicine, listed here, and within the College of Physical Sciences, listed here. A number of these projects involve systems biology and or synthetic biology approaches. Students in this Aberdeen PhD programme will be studying at a University with a highly successful record in systems biology research funding (currently £8m).
If you have a 2i or 1st class degree in a science subject, or an equivalent qualification, and are interested in applying for a research studentship, please follow the application processes detailed on the Graduate School web sites.
Alternatively, if you do not find a studentship of interest and still wish to pursue postgraduate research studies please make direct contact with one of the staff listed here, or with the Graduate Schools in the College of Physical Sciences or in the College of Life Sciences and Medicine for help in finding a supervisor and funding in your area of interest.
