The Babraham Institute is an international focus for innovative research in post-genomics studying gene function in cells, organs and systems, supported principally by the Research Councils. It is a recognised postgraduate University Partner Institute of the University of Cambridge. Starting October 2013 one BBSRC CASE Award Studentship will be available at Babraham leading to a University of Cambridge PhD degree, in addition to those allocated following our Open Day in January. This studentship can be awarded for up to 4 years, for both UK and eligible EU students.
Please refer to the BBSRC website (www.bbsrc.ac.uk/web/FILES/Guidelines/studentship_eligibility.pdf) and further information on these web pages for details of eligibility and funding for the BBSRC CASE Award. Students will join a thriving scientific community situated on an attractive parkland campus near Cambridge. Our 60 students are all members of Cambridge Colleges and participate fully in University social and academic life (www.biomed.cam.ac.uk/gradschool/).
Details of our interactive scientific programmes can be found on www.babraham.ac.uk. The Institute is fully equipped for state-of-the-art biological research including: innovative molecular biology, stem cell manipulation and transgenics, epigenetics, structural studies on chromatin, real-time laser scanning confocal microscopy, calcium imaging, fluorescence sorting of cells, gene targeting and knockouts, mouse models of disease, mouse behavioural testing, mathematical and computational biology, proteomics and lipidomics. The closing date for application for this studentship will be Friday 7th June 2013. Selected students will be invited to attend interviews, discuss their research interests and view the Institute’s facilities.
Full details of the project and supervisor are given below; our supervisors welcome informal enquiries.
Travel expenses will be paid to those invited for interview.
