About the Project
Training/techniques to be provided:
Depending on the background of the candidates, relevant training in biology and/or in informatics will be provided through interactions with supervisor, regular group meetings, and also through courses available in the faculty/University, e.g., Wellcome Trust Informatics training program.
Candidates with background in Maths/Physics/Statistics/Engineering/CS with strong interest in biology, or candidates with biological sciences background with some experience in computing and at least good A-level in Maths and strong motivation to learn more advanced statistical modelling techniques.
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.
