Course Description

AIMS The programme provides a springboard into a career that involves a working knowledge of scientific research in academia and industry. It is designed for intercalating and fully qualified MB BS or BDS students, graduates with a BSc in the life sciences and graduates from other science disciplines. The MRes can be taken either as a stand-alone qualification or act as an entry route onto a PhD or MD. PROGRAMME DESCRIPTION The MRes is a research-based qualification with a taught component that is of an equivalent standard to an MSc. It provides training in contemporary medical and molecular biosciences through three subject-knowledge modules in or related to animal behaviour (60 credits), professional and key skills training (20 credits), and a 24-week laboratory-based research project (100 credits). The programme enables you to experience an internationally competitive research area, predominantly in academia but also potentially in industry. If you register for an integrated MResPhD, MResMD or MResDDS you will be allocated projects that are relevant to your proposed PhD or MD, or DDS programme. The core module in animal behaviour introduces the central questions related to animal behaviour research (adaptive consequences, proximate mechanisms, development, and evolutionary history) and the research methods associated with each. Research-led seminars, delivered by members of Newcastle University s Centre for Behaviour and Evolution, form a significant part of this module and cover a wide range of taxa (insects to humans), topics (olfaction to cooperation), and methodologies.
