This project will be funded from an MRC grant and the successful applicant will be hired as a full time Research Assistant who will be enrolled into the University of Edinburgh PhD program as a part-time PhD student. This financial arrangement will not affect in any way the students’ progress towards a successful PhD but because of the employment constrains only EU citizens can apply (any EU country applicant will be given an equal opportunity). The start date is flexible but is expected to be in autumn 2019.
