This studentship is targeted to applicants with a Physical Sciences, Mathematical or Computational Sciences background, interested in applying their training to stem cell biology. Students complete three lab rotations during year one, before deciding where to undertake their thesis work.
Stem cells are defined by their capacity to self-renew and differentiate into somatic cells. Great inroads have been made towards understanding how stem cells generate tissue and sustain cell turnover, most of which have been made by studying the biochemistry of stem cells. Less is known of their function across scales – from molecules to tissue – or interaction with their physical environment.
We welcome applications from those who hold (or expect to receive) a relevant first degree at the highest level, with a passion for scientific research, with a Physical Sciences, Mathematical or Computational Sciences background.
Applicants must meet the MRC eligibility requirements at here.
