This is a 4-year CRUK-funded studentship (open to UK and EU candidates). The ideal candidate would have a keen interest in the development and application of new tools and methodologies to study cancer biology and for drug discovery, and would welcome the multidisciplinary nature of the project. In particular they should have a strong physical- or computer-sciences background. A high level of computer literacy, including experience of computer programming is essential. The project is based at the ICR and will be co-supervised by Chris Bakal at the ICR and Chris Dunsby in the Photonics Group at Imperial.
