Joining Us

orangtallWe welcome approaches from people who may be interested in joining the group at a variety of levels.

PhD STUDENTS. Various PhD studentships are available each year. These are awarded competitively within the School of Biosciences and are not allocated to specific supervisors or projects. Details of current PhD projects are listed here and on the FindaPhD website, but we also welcome approaches from talented students with their own project ideas.

POST-DOCS. If you are interested in joining the group as a post-doc, we would normally expect you to apply for your own fellowship. We are always happy to hear from people who are interested in taking this route. In addition, we occasionally have vacant post-doc positions available on existing grants. These are advertised on, in the scientific press and displayed here.

PROJECT STUDENTS & INTERNSHIPS. We occasionally take Undergraduate and Masters-level students for research projects in the group. Those applying from outside the University of Birmingham should send a C.V. to Susannah, describing the project they wish to work on and why.
