Course summary

This MRes is designed for students with a passion for the diversity of life on earth, who are looking to further their knowledge and experience of quantitative techniques in ecology, evolution and conservation. The course is focused on current topics in modern computational and quantitative biology such as the interactions between ecological and evolutionary dynamics, the effects of climate change on biological systems, and complex ecological and evolutionary networks. You gain postgraduate-level training in research skills during the intensive one-year full-time programme.

The programme starts in the autumn term with a seven-week intensive training modules in the latest developments of informatics and genomics for whole-organism research. You then begin a nine-month research project in the spring term and submit at the end of the course. Your research project can take place at Imperial, or be jointly hosted by one of our peer-institutes, which includes:

  • Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew
  • The NERC Centre for Ecology and Hydrology
  • The Natural History Museum

Project opportunities include genetics, conservation, tropical and environmental biology; they will either be purely analytical or have strong field and/or laboratory components.

You graduate with a range of transferrable professional skills that help to give a major edge in competing for PhDs and jobs. Your experience of conducting research projects will allow you to make a more informed decision on the area of research and specific PhD project you may wish to undertake in the future.

This course is the ideal training for students looking to pursue a career in academic, government or non-governmental organisations engaged in research into biodiversity.
