PhD in Cornwall
The Centre for Ecology and Conservation has a thriving community of PhD students. They work at sites around the UK (from Scotland to Cornwall) and around the world (from South Africa, to Gabon, the Cayman Islands and Cyprus). A diverse range of topics are studied, the breadth of these can be seen by accessing the staff pages on this site. We welcome approaches from interested would-be PhD students throughout the year; although it is usually Easter when we know exactly how many students we will take on each year.
Please make first contact through Dr John Hunt.
