Biowyddorau

Our research ranges across the biological sciences, from the understanding of precisely how neurons grow, to the mechanisms of cancer and other diseases, the molecular basis of animal and plant development and exploring the genetics of orang-utans, elephants, pandas and other endangered species.

Our research ranges across the biological sciences, from the understanding of precisely how neurons grow, to the mechanisms of cancer and other diseases, the molecular basis of animal and plant development and exploring the genetics of orang-utans, elephants, pandas and other endangered species.

Research is led by internationally renowned researchers running dynamic research programmes, with access to a range of state-of-the-art technology facilities. Our reputation is reflected in the tens of millions of pounds in research funding that we attract annually and by our consistent high level of publications in top international journals. We encourage high-level interdisciplinary collaborations, both nationally and internationally.

We are ranked 13th in the UK in the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014. In this assessment 60% of our research was deemed ‘outstanding’ for its impact in terms of its reach and significance.

PhD

Students will train in internationally renowned laboratories under full supervision, to complete a high-level research project.

Our excellent seminar, skills and training programme at Cardiff provides a fully tailored and vibrant research culture to ensure your professional development and employability.

MD

The School offers laboratory-based research degrees to recognised graduates of Medicine, that focus on a specific clinical research topic to make an original contribution to medical knowledge. As an MD student you will receive a high level of supervision and access to specialist research skills training.

MPhil

MPhil research offers a shorter and more focused project than studying for a PhD. An MPhil degree offers students an opportunity to build on previous academic and professional experience to develop research skills. MPhil students are actively involved in work at the cutting edge of all research activities.

We offer supervision and/or research projects in the following areas:

  • Molecular Biosciences
  • Pathophysiology and Repair
  • Organisms and Environment
  • Cancer
  • Engineering Living Systems
  • Mechanisms of Life and Disease
  • Neuroscience
  • Sustainable Planet
  • New Technologies.

Meysydd ymchwil

Pathoffisioleg a Thrwsio

Pathophysiology and Repair focuses on the molecular mechanisms underpinning physiology, disease and the processes that drive repair and regeneration.

Biowyddorau Moleciwlaidd

Molecular Biosciences focuses on the molecular mechanisms underpinning biological function.

Niwrowyddoniaeth

The Neuroscience division pursues a broad range of neurobiological research, spanning from the molecular to the behavioural levels.

Organebau a'r Amgylchedd

The Organisms and Environment research division focuses on the biology of whole organisms and their roles and interactions in changing ecosystems, in infection and health and at the genetic level.

Prosiectau ymchwil

We are inviting applications to a number of self-funded PhD projects in our School of Biosciences. These projects are open to UK/EU and overseas students.

Possible start dates for these projects: 1 July 2016, 1 October 2016, 1 January 2017, 1 April 2017

Application deadline: 31 July 2016

Please note:

  1. In place of a personal statement, you must write as to why you want to undertake a research study (approximately 500 words).
  2. Under 'Title/topic of proposed research project', type in the project title and in the space for research proposal repeat the project title.
  3. In answer to the question ‘How do you plan to fund your studies?’, please   specify the details and upload any documents proving the evidence (ex:   letter of confirmation of scholarship).
