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 South-West Doctoral Training Partnership of the BBSRC, starting September 2018.
The successful candidate will have a 1st or 2:1 class degree in Biological Sciences or a related discipline, an appetite for technological development as well as an interest in quantitative approaches to stem cell biology. Applications from EU citizens are welcome.
The project aims at understanding how adult stem cells respond to the local needs for cell replacement through lineage tracing, genetic manipulation, confocal microscopy and the development of a new, Gal4-compatible, drug-inducible method for the temporal control of transgene expression in Drosophila. This will be done in collaboration with Prof Helen White-Cooper’s lab in Cardiff and that of Dr Edward Morrissey in Oxford (who will bring in his expertise in mathematical modelling).
For more details of the project see here.
For further questions and informal enquiries contact Dr Joaquín de Navascués at deNavascuesJ@cardiff.ac.uk.

Deadline for applications: Monday 4th December 2017, midnight
