Course summary

As a PhD student in these disciplines, you will benefit from membership of the university's Ecology, Conservation and Zoonosis Research and Enterprise Group.

The group has a wide range of staff with expertise in topics that range from assessing the impacts of human actions such as pollution and waste on physiology and behaviour of animals, the consequences of land and species management on wildlife populations and investigating interactions between humans and wildlife in relation to human and animal health and wellbeing.

Our PhD graduates have gone on to work in many areas of education, ecology, conservation and environment. For example, some of our previous PhD students now work as university academics, postdocs in research institutes, ecological consultants and in conservation organisations.

As a Conservation Ecology and Zoonosis PhD student at the University of Brighton you will benefit from: a supervisory team comprising 2-3 members of academic staff. Depending on your research specialism you may also have an additional external supervisor from another School, research institution, or industry; desk space and access to a desktop PC, either in one of the postgraduate offices on the sixth floor of the award-winning Cockcroft Building; access to a range of electronic resources via the university’s Online Library, as well as to the physical book and journal collections housed within the Aldrich Library and other campus libraries; access to state-of-the-art research facilities on the Moulsecoomb site, including electron microscopy, mass spectrometry, computer simulations and electrochemistry, all of which are available to research students; support from postdoctoral researchers, visiting fellows and technical staff with dedicated genetics and ecology labs and a greenhouse; access to facilities, expertise and skills across the applied ecology and environmental areas from the School of Environment and Technology.
