Ph.D. Degree (Doctoral Studies)
It is possible to earn a doctorate in zoology in any of the fields in which members of the School’s academic staff are engaged.
These include: ecology, evolution, behaviour, marine biology, nature conservation, nature-inspired technology (bio-engineering), taxonomy and systematics, physiology and human-environment interrelationships. The first – and most important – stage is to find a supervisor and laboratory from among the School’s academic staff.
It is advised to approach directly those researchers at the School of Zoology whose research subjects relate to your own interests, and to arrange to meet them in person. On the Faculty website you can find a list of all the heads of laboratories according to their specific fields. In the section presenting research fields, you can find the list of researchers according to their specific scientific studies.
After you have found a supervisor, you need to register on the University registration website and with the School’s secretariat.
