This is a 3-year PhD fellowship funded by COMPARE (The Centre of Membrane Proteins and Receptors). COMPARE seminars offer opportunities to learn about potential collaborations in the field of membrane protein/receptor clustering and to present the progress of the PhD project on a regular basis.
The project is linked to a second COMPARE PhD studentship dealing with improving data analysis in quantitative microscopy co-supervised by Iain Styles (School of Computer Sciences) which should support the experimental work in project.
Interested students should contact Prof Herten ([email protected]), with a cover letter and CV.
