If you are excited to probe cellular responses with a mixture of experimental and computational techniques, come work with us!
We welcome specific enquiries from potential PhD students, masters’ students, and from visiting scientists including ERASMUS.
We welcome specific enquiries from prospective Postdocs interested in applying for fellowships to work with us: send an email describing your interests in this lab, and attach a CV.
What do we mean by “specific enquiries”? Unfortunately, labs get so many spam-like generic emails about PhD places that these emails get deleted immediately. Instead, show that you have interest in our specific work, on RNA processing and environmental responses in fungi. The ideal “specific enquiry” email would reference a specific paper we have published, and make some suggestions as to what you want to do next in response. Those emails get thoughtful replies - just show that you’ve put in some thought in writing to us! As part of our commitment to diversity, we will take particular care to respond to students from underserved populations.

Design and Implementation
I was inspired by, and built from, The Drummond Lab website. This in turn was built from a design from Trevor Bedford.
