About Evolution and Behaviour at University of Sheffield

The connection between how organisms have evolved and how they behave is a fundamental principle of biology. It can show us why organisms are the way they are, and answer deep questions about the diversity of life on earth.

The course is uniquely research-focused and, over 12 months, you'll be embedded in one of our research groups. Our world-class research in this area spans topics including animal behaviour, molecular ecology, sexual selection and sexual conflict, speciation, the evolutionary genomics of adaptation, evolutionary developmental, ecological immunity, and bioinformatics and life history evolution, giving you the opportunity to contribute new knowledge in an area of evolution and behaviour that interests you most.

How to apply

Because of the research-intensive nature of this course, we ask you to include a short supporting statement with your application. This should explain how your interests and experience relate to the evolution and behaviour research we do in the Department of Animal and Plant Sciences, including which particular supervisors or research groups you would be most interested in working with.
