About Plant and Microbial Biology at University of Sheffield

Plants and microbes are fundamental to food security, as well as being central to global ecosystems. At Sheffield we study them from every angle: from the molecular level up to whole organisms, in the context of ecosystems, industry and major global challenges.

Sheffield is home to the Plant Production and Protection (P3) global centre of excellence for translational plant science, allowing students on this course to examine the effects of past, present and future climates on plants and the wider environment.

Our links with external collaborators also make it possible for students with a particular interest in agricultural or horticultural research to complete their MRes project at Enza Zaden in the Netherlands or Rothamsted Research in the UK.

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 plant and microbial biology research we do in the Department of Animal and Plant Sciences, which particular supervisors or research groups you would be most interested in working with and if you'd like to be considered for an industrial placement at our P3 centre.
