Uruguay PhD Scholarship

A new programme of 3-year scholarships to conduct PhD studies in Life Science has recently been signed between the University of Lincoln and the Uruguay National Agency for Research and Innovation (ANII - Agencia Nacional de Investigación e Innovación). Further information.


Welcome to the School of Life Sciences at the University of Lincoln. This interdisciplinary school provides an exciting and stimulating environment where excellence in teaching and research are highly valued, and we provide opportunities for students and staff to pursue their scientific ambitions. The excellence of our research was confirmed in the recent government REF assessment in which 90% of our submitted papers were judged to be internationally excellent or world-leading.  

The School of Life Sciences has a growing reputation for both undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and research, which covers a wide spectrum of the Life Sciences. We currently run undergraduate courses in Animal Behaviour & Welfare, Biochemistry, Biology, Biomedical ScienceBioveterinary Science, and  Zoology. We also offer taught masters in Biotechnology, Clinical Animal Behaviour and Forensic Anthropology, and welcome applications from research students across the breadth of our disciplines.

Since August 2014 we have been enjoying working in our new laboratories named The Joseph Banks Laboratories and Minster House, the first buildings of the Lincoln Science and Innovation Park. These are in addition to our fantastic purpose-built Science Building, and is a direct example of our growth as a School over recent years.
