Joining the lab

Postdoctoral researchers

We currently have no funding for a new postdoc. 

We do welcome enquiries from potential postdocs at any time. Available (funded) posts are advertised here, at jobs.ac.uk and on the university website.

Others might wish to consider fellowship routes such as EMBO, HFSP, or Marie Curie schemes. We welcome enquiries for suitable candidates. We will consider supporting the most able candidates for these but please ensure you are eligible.

The call for Newton Fellowships is currently open.  Newton Fund countries include Brazil, China, India, Mexico, South Africa, and Turkey but the scheme also enables applicants from Italy, Israel and the USA to come to the UK for research for up to 2 years.

Graduate students

 

T

he only current option to join the lab is through our Wellcome Trust Dynamic Cell Biology PhD Programme.

Other specific studentships are advertised through findaphd.com

Otherwise we welcome applications from students who have scholarships or fellowships to fund their own studies.

Undergraduate students
In general, we are unable to accept interns or summer students for more than one week unless their stay in the lab is funded. This is to ensure fair access for all regardless of ability to work without getting any income. For undergraduate students this could be through relevant Wellcome Trust, Nuffield, Biochemical Society, or British Society for Cell Biology schemes. We are already committed for 2017 and so cannot take further students.
