PhD position in evaluation of liquid-liquid phase separation in disease cells and in vitro using fluorescence lifetime imaging and image correlation spectroscopy
The University of Manchester
About the Project
Candidates are expected to hold a minimum upper second class honours degree (or equivalent) in a physical chemistry, physics, biophysics, chemical engineering or any related subjects. Candidates with experience in any of the aforementioned techniques or with an interest in liquid-liquid phase separation are encouraged to apply.
For information on how to apply for this project, please visit the Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health Doctoral Academy website (https://www.bmh.manchester.ac.uk/study/research/apply/). Informal enquiries may be made directly to the primary supervisor. On the online application form select PhD Biophysics.
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.
