Department of Plant Sciences
The Department has three strategic targets for its research: synthetic biology and technology, climate science and ecosystem conservation and global food security.
Our lecturers are experts in their fields and committed to undergraduate teaching
We have various opportunities for funding and a graduate training programme which will develop your knowledge base as well as enhancing your IT and presentation skills.
We're a really friendly and fairly small department
The Department is a unique centre of learning in the fundamental plant processes which sustain life on earth, using an understanding of molecular mechanisms and ecological systems to inform teaching across the Natural Sciences.
From Science Week to our scheduled set of seminars, feel free to come along
