About the Project
Together we aim to uncover how cell trafficking evolved to sustain the complexity of the eukaryotic life we know.
This PhD is from a VW Life? award (https://www.volkswagenstiftung.de/en/funding/our-funding-portfolio-at-a-glance/life-–-a-fresh-scientific-approach-to-the-basic-principles-of-life).
ABOUT US: The Baum lab (https://www.ucl.ac.uk/lmcb/users/buzz-baum) is an interdisciplinary team. Working together, we aim to better understand the evolution of eukaryotic cell shape and division, to determine how cells regulate their form, and to determine how these processes contribute to normal tissue development and homeostasis and, when they go awry, to the evolution of metastatic cancer.
ABOUT YOU: The candidate should have an undergraduate degree in the Natural Sciences.
They should have a working knowledge of cell biology and microscopy, and be willing to work as part of an interdisciplinary team.
HOW TO APPLY: The position is fully funded by the Volkswagen Foundation and will be for four years starting at any point after January 1st 2020. Please send electronic applications to [Email Address Removed] in the following format:
• A CV, including full details of all University course grades to date.
• Contact details for two academic or professional referees (at least one academic).
• A personal statement (750 words maximum) outlining (i) your academic excellence, (ii) suitability for the project, (iii) what you hope to achieve from the PhD and (iv) your research experience to-date.
The evaluation of applications will begin 28th October 2019 until the position is filled.
