You will have a keen interest in working at the biology/engineering interface and bring relevant knowledge from a first degree. You should demonstrate how your experience and interest will apply to planned behavioral experiments on spider orientation responses to vibrations. You will benefit from a vibrant and inclusive research community, with support for DPhil (Oxford PhD) funding applications; we encourage you to share your ideas and aspirations for a DPhil project on a related topic.
