There are many reasons why one would want to do a PhD in the College of Life Sciences at Dundee. With more that 1000 staff and research students and external funding in excess of £50 million per year, the College is one of the largest and most productive research institutes in Europe. Our reputation is genuinely global and is reflected in the fact that researchers in our laboratories represent no fewer than 58 different nationalities. Students in the College receive a great deal of support from their peers via the PhD student association (PiCLS) and the postdoctoral association (CLSPA). We offer a range of different types of studentships, some involve rotation projects prior to selection of the main project whilst others are fixed on a single research area.
