About the Project
Training/techniques to be provided:
The student will receive training in biochemistry and cell biology, including the growth and differentiation of induced pluripotent stem cells, immunofluorescence microscopy, receptor identification, mass spectrometry, proteomics and bioinformatics analyses.
Candidates are expected to hold (or be about to obtain) a minimum upper second class honours degree (B.Sc. or equivalent) in a related area / subject (e.g. biochemistry, cell biology, neuroscience) and preferably a master degree in a related area.
For international students we also offer a unique 4 year PhD programme that gives you the opportunity to undertake an accredited Teaching Certificate whilst carrying out an independent research project across a range of biological, medical and health sciences.
