Candidates are expected to hold (or be about to obtain) a minimum upper second class honours degree (or equivalent) in biology or a related area. Candidates with experience with Drosophila or with an interest in gene expression and stem cells are encouraged to apply.
This project has a Band 2 fee. Details of our different fee bands can be found on our website (View Website). For information on how to apply for this project, please visit the Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health Doctoral Academy website (View Website).
Informal enquiries may be made directly to the primary supervisor.
