PhD positions

Details of any IMPACT Studentships or Industrial CASE Studentships awarded directly to Professor Purton will be advertised here, and at findaphd.com, as they become available.

The work in the Group covers a range of topics, so as well as students with degrees in the life sciences, those with backgrounds in Chemistry, Biochemical Engineering or Bioinformatics, can be considered for particular projects.

Informal applications are welcome from students who wish to study for a PhD in an aspect of algal biology or biotechnology, particularly those students who have an independent source of funding (e.g. a government scholarship). Students who fulfil UK/EU residency requirements and are interested in Research Council or Wellcome Trust studentships should visit the Institute of Structural and Molecular Biology website for further details, as competition for these studentships is administered centrally by the ISMB.
