Project Description

Applications are invited for a four year PhD studentship starting in September 2019 funded by a BBSRC Collaborative Training Partnership between The University of Sheffield and MedImmune Ltd., Cambridge.

The successful applicant will join an established group of researchers at Sheffield and MedImmune concerned with synthetic biology-based engineering mammalian cells for production of next generation biopharmaceuticals. This project is concerned with the development of methods for directed re-design of host mammalian cell factory functional phenotype for improved manufacturing performance using a combination of genetic engineering and directed evolution approaches.

Informal enquiries should be directed to Professor David James ().

Funding Notes

Applicants from the UK or EU should hold or expect to be awarded a first or upper second class degree in molecular bioscience or (bio)chemical engineering, or the equivalent.

If English is not your first language, then you must have International English Language Testing Service (IELTS) average of 6.5 or above with at least 6.0 in each component.
