Applicants with computing background should be ready to learn more about programming biological systems. Applicants with non-computing background should be willing to learn about data and model-based analysis approaches, and writing computer programmes. They should be self-motivated and have the ability to work both independently and as part of a team.
The opportunities are open to UK/EU students and overseas students. The collaborative and presentation aspects of the research require very good English language and communication skills.
