*** PhD positions available *** We're advertising fully funded NERC and BBSRC PhD projects, on various themes relating to fertility/sexual selection/ageing/life history in Drosophila. See the projects on FindAPhD here, and contact me for informal enquiries ************************ Interested in joining the lab? Liverpool University provides a world class research environment as well as a culturally vibrant and fun city to live in. Our lab is located in the Institute of Infection, Veterinary & Ecological Sciences, which is home to a diverse set of staff and students, making for an ideal location to conduct integrative evolutionary biology research. If you’re interested in joining us, informal enquiries are welcome at any time – drop me an email (contact details here).
There are a number of ways to get funding to join our lab. Here of some of them.
Post docs & research fellows National fellowship schemes from NERC, BBSRC, the Royal Society can provide substantial funding. Marie Curie fellowships which allow people to come from locations outside the UK, as can Newton Fellowships. We have plenty of experience in writing and interviewing for fellowship schemes, so can help you with your application. Get in contact well in advance for the best chance of success!
PhD students I’m happy to supervise students in any of the areas of research currently going on in the lab – see our previous publications to get an idea of what we're doing. Joint supervision of PhD students is common here, and I have co-supervised students with a whole range of colleagues. In the first instance please email me to discuss research interests and possible projects. Check out the the Doctoral Training Programs for funding details – BBSRC, NERC and MRC. Or if you have your own funding, or other schemes you can apply to, do get in touch!
Undergraduates We can offer undergrad project places to Liverpool students – please email me if you’re a student interested in doing your project with us. There are also potential opportunities for undergraduates (from any University) to gain research experience during vacations, for example ASAB provide undergrad project scholarships. These typically require a bit of preparation so be sure to contact me in good time.
