The Evolution Education Trust supports fundamental research in the fields of evolutionary biology and genetics, as well as research into how best to deliver evolution teaching and outreach. Funded PhD positions are available at the Milner Centre for Evolution, a unique, cross-faculty research centre bridging biology, health and education at the University of Bath. These studentships will either focus on fundamental evolutionary research (but will include an outreach component) or will focus entirely on education and outreach with respect to any aspect of evolutionary science.
Applications are invited from candidates who have, or who expect to obtain, first or upper second class honours (or equivalent) in a relevant undergraduate degree.
Funding lasts for up to three and a half years. This includes:
- Home tuition fees
- generous budget for research expenses and outreach activities
- maintenance stipend £15,609 per annum (2021/22 rate)
