About the Project
Training/techniques to be provided:
Work in the host laboratories encompasses a range of cutting-edge microbiology, molecular biological, biochemical and biophysical techniques that provide an excellent basis for a career in biosciences research. The project particularly will involve gene cloning and manipulation, mutagenesis and sequence analysis, as well as a range of project-specific assays that assess TA activity in E. coli.
Candidates are expected to hold a minimum upper second class honours degree (or equivalent) in a related subject and to possess postgraduate experience. A solid theoretical background in molecular biology, e.g., understanding of gene expression and control, is essential. Practical experience in molecular biology techniques, including polymerase chain reaction, molecular cloning and sequence analysis, is required.
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.

As an equal opportunities institution we welcome applicants from all sections of the community regardless of gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation and transgender status. All appointments are made on merit.
