Research Opportunity


Research opportunity:  MbyRes 


The University of Exeter’s College of Life and Environmental Sciences, in partnership with the Eden Project and the Garfield Weston Foundation, is inviting applications for an MbyRes studentship to commence as soon as possible. The student would be based in Biosciences in the College of Life and Environmental Sciences at the Penryn Campus in Cornwall investigating the role of wildflower habitats in promoting pollinator populations in botanical gardens and public open spaces: a network approach.

In response to the global decline on pollinator biodiversity and abundance there is increasing interest in how we can make human dominated habitats support a greater diversity and abundance of pollinators. This project provides the opportunity to investigate the impacts of wildflower meadows and pollinator friendly shrub and perennial planting on pollinator networks and visitation rates in botanical gardens and public open spaces.

For eligible students the award provides annual funding to cover Home tuition fees, project costs and a tax-free stipend of £2,000. Students who pay international tuition fees are eligible to apply, but should note that the award will only provide payment for part of the international tuition fee. This is a 2 year, full time project, but can be carried out on a part time basis over 3 years. Interested candidates please contact:
