Ph.D Zoology

Ph.D Zoology

The Department of Life Sciences is home to a community of researchers from a great diversity of disciplines of Zoology, ranging from Animal physiology, Toxicology, Applied Entomology and Vector Control Technology. The Ph.D. in Zoology is a postgraduate degree that offers the opportunity to research and analyze animals. The course of study can focus on many aspects of animal life, including their distribution in ecosystems and their interactions with other species and their environment. The PhD degree is a minimum of three years of full-time research with an individual supervisor/s. At the end of their degree, students will produce a written thesis, which will be assessed by independent experts, and examined with a viva. This is the principal research degree offered in the Zoology by the Department of Life Sciences and the great majority of our students are registered for it. Students are supervised by at least one member of the academic staff who is an expert in the student’s field of study. Supervisors support students in developing an independent and novel project in their field of interest. Students will learn how to review relevant literature, to phrase and answer scientific questions, and to report their findings to the scientific community, at conferences and through peer-reviewed scientific publications. The students are encouraged to get experience in undergraduate teaching, which can be either as demonstrators during practical classes or supervisors teaching small groups. At the end of each semester students are required to pass a semester wise assessment, based on a detailed progress report examined by Research advisory committee.
