About the Project
Candidates are expected to hold (or about to obtain) a minimum second class (for MPhil study) and upper second class (for PhD study) honours degree (or equivalent) in biochemistry, cell biology, chemistry or a related subject. Candidates with experience in protein folding study or with an interest in protein folding and protein biotechnology are encouraged to apply.
For information on how to apply for this project, please visit the Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health Doctoral Academy website (https://www.bmh.manchester.ac.uk/study/research/apply/). Informal enquiries may be made directly to the primary supervisor.
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.
