I am pleased to announce that there is an MRC-funded PhD studentship available in the Huett lab, starting in the 2012/13 academic year.
The project will examine the role of novel effectors in host-pathogen interactions, with a strong initial focus upon cellular imaging. The second supervisor will be Dr Rob Delahay, and a successful candidate can expect broad exposure to cutting edge research and technologies within both the School of Biology and Centre for Biomolecular Sciences.
This studentship is open to all qualified UK students or EU students who have been resident in the UK for at least the last 3 years (EU students who have not been in the UK for 3 years will only receive fees and no stipend). Funding is for three and a half years.
Applicants should have a strong academic and practical science record, with an upper second-class (2i) Honours degree or better. High-scoring MSc or MRes qualifications and/or previous research experience would be an advantage.
