Ph.D. Studentship Opportunities: Ph.D. students in the group work on research projects that enable them to make new contributions to techniques in bioinformatics
and the understanding of biological systems. Students typically develop software to analyse biological data and mine databases. They may also then apply this new software in
collaboration with "wet-lab" groups.
Ph.D. projects are developed in discussion with the student and designed to be individual to the student, and provide a range of training in bioinformatics research
Ph.D. Applicant Requirements: Ph.D. applicants should have a strong
interest in computing. Some prior experience of programming in a Unix/Linux environment is helpful as it gives an indication of aptitude for the work but this experience is not essential. Previous students have come from first degrees in: Chemistry, Biochemistry, Theoretical Physics and Genetics, but we also welcome applications from students of other disciplines such as Computer Science and Mathematics.
Please see the College of Life Sciences Ph.D. web pages for details of how to apply and the funding opportunities.
Please note that opportunities for funding non-UK/EU citizens resident in the UK are very limited.
