About the Project
This project provides training in a leading, internationally-recognised interdisciplinary environment. Training will be provided in human in vivo research (including ethical and regulatory aspects); photobiology intervention study; UVR measurement and dosimetry, and data management and analysis. The successful candidate will benefit from interactions with other researchers and group collaborators, and have the opportunity to contribute to national / international conferences and public engagement activities.
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.
