We have PhD positions available in the lab to start in October 2017. The projects involve developing new single-molecule FRET sensors for synthetic biology and drug discovery applications, alongside contributing to our other research interests.
Students will receive full training in a wide range of biochemical and biophysical techniques, chiefly single-molecule FRET spectroscopy and biomolecular labelling. Skills may also be gained by working closely with our collaborators (in Madrid, Florida, Leeds and Bristol) with significant scope to develop the project according to individual interests.
Applicants should have (or expect to gain) a 1st or 2.1 class degree in Biochemistry, Chemistry, Biophysics or a related discipline, and be happy to work in a collaborative, multidisciplinary environment.
For more information email Dr Tim Craggs.
We are always happy to host talented scientists for Fellowships in our lab. If you would like to join the lab via this route, please contact us directly, with your CV and project ideas, and we will try and support you in your application process for external funding.
