School of Life Sciences Postgraduate Programmes

Animal Behaviour and Welfare - MPhil/PhD

The scientific study of animal behaviour and welfare furthers our understanding of why animals behave in the way that they do, and helps us learn how best to respond to the challenges that animals face when living in captive and wild environments. At Lincoln, this is informed by academics who are considered to be at the forefront of their respective fields in welfare assessment, animal management, evolutionary biology, and animal cognition, and the range of specialist facilities available includes aquatic and reptile facilities, an insectary, and a bioacoustics laboratory.

Biochemistry and Molecular Biology - MPhil/PhD

Biochemistry and Molecular Biology offer an understanding of the biological and chemical processes that allow life to thrive, giving us the tools we need to solve key challenges in cell biology, pathology, pharmacology, physiology, and genetics. Advances in these fields have revolutionised our knowledge of how biological systems work at the molecular level and the mechanisms that underpin a wide range of cellular processes. This enables us to respond to a range of human health problems and diseases through interventions at the molecular and biochemical level. Our MPhil/PhD is designed to enable students to develop their research skills by focusing on a specialist set of research questions.

Biology - MPhil/PhD

Biology is the science of life itself, exploring the structure, function, growth, origin, evolution, and distribution of living organisms. Biology covers a diverse range of subject areas and our MPhil/PhD is designed to allow students to commence research in their own specialisms.

Biotechnology - MSc

The MSc Biotechnology programme provides students with the opportunity to develop an advanced theoretical knowledge, understanding, and practical experience of modern molecular and systems biology approaches to emerging biotechnologies.


Bioveterinary Science - MPhil/PhD

Bioveterinary Science at Lincoln provides students with the opportunity to research the science that underlies animal health and disease. This could include the processes surrounding animal health; life histories of pathogens and parasites; infection and immunity; preventative measures, or diagnosis and treatments.

Clinical Animal Behaviour - MSc

Clinical Animal Behaviourists work on veterinary referral, helping the owners of companion animals resolve behavioural problems through diagnosis of the problem behaviour and application of individual behaviour modification programmes.


Evolution and Ecology - MPhil/PhD

Conserving biodiversity and avoiding the extinction of species are huge global challenges. It has never been more important for scientists to understand organisms and ecosystems, how they have evolved and are interrelated, and how they respond to the threats they face.


Evolution and Ecology - MSc by Research

This MSc by Research provides an opportunity for students from biological subjects to begin research in life sciences.


Microbiology - MPhil/PhD

Microbiology has an impact on multiple aspects of our lives, ensuring our food is safe, treating and preventing disease, developing green technologies, or tracking the role of microbes in climate change, among other applications.


Microbiology - MSc by Research

This MSc by Research provides an opportunity for students from biological subjects to begin research in life sciences.


Microbiology - MSc

The MSc Microbiology aims to equip students with the advanced knowledge and skills required to embark on further research or employment in industries striving to solve major global challenges such as antibiotic resistance, clean drinking water, and food security.


Zoology - MPhil/PhD

The study of zoology is an exploration of how animals have evolved, how they function, and the ways in which they interact with their environment. The subject integrates anatomy, physiology, behaviour, ecology, evolution, and conservation to provide a comprehensive understanding of species structure and diversity. Humans have created a rapidly-changing world to which animals have had to adapt. Understanding the amazing diversity of animals that share our planet helps us to understand our origins, as well as predict future evolution.
