Organisation profile

We address fundamental evolutionary and ecological questions by studying a variety of species and systems in both the lab and the field.


We focus on understanding adaptations simultaneously at the gene and whole-organism level, and on applying sound scientific principles to tackling pressing issues in conservation.


Our facilities include excellent molecular labs, an extensive ‘Constant Environment Facility' and a wealth of excellent local and global ecological resources.


We welcome enquiries from prospective PhD students, postdocs and fellows. We also run a successful MSc in Applied Ecology and Conservation.
