I am looking for talented and driven candidates for a 4yr-PhD programme to join my laboratory at the European Cancer Stem Cell Research Institute at Cardiff University. The studentship is funded by the GW4 BioMed Doctoral Training Partnership of the MRC, starting October 2018.
The successful candidate will have a 1st or 2:1 class degree in Biomedical or Biological Sciences, or a related discipline, and an interest in basic biomedical research and in vivo approaches. Applications from EU citizens are welcome.
The project aims at understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying the chronic radiation injury, which is an important limitation to the efficacy of cancer radiotherapy. The project combines transcriptional profiling, functional assays and microscopy and histology, in collaboration with Dr Pablo Orozco ter Wengel.
For more details of the project see here.
For further questions and informal enquiries contact Dr Joaquín de Navascués at deNavascuesJ@cardiff.ac.uk.
