Here we list current vacancies and opportunities to work with researchers in the Zeeman Institute:
The GeMVi project is looking to recruit East African Research Fellows to undertake short term public health oriented projects of relevance to the East African setting. More details and application forms can be found here.
We are always interested in hearing from researchers that are looking to apply for independent fellowships. Depending on background and interests, there are multiple funding sources where SBIDER has had past success:
- BBSRC (including David Phillips and Early Career fellowships)
- Wellcome Trust (including Henry Wellcome & Henry Dale fellowships)
- Leverhulme Trust (including Research and Early Career fellowships)
- Newton International Fellowships. Annual competition, opens January for candidates outside the UK.
If you are interested in doing a PhD in any aspect of Systems Biology or Epidemiological research, there are a number of potential funding sources (in both Life Sciences and Mathematics). For those with a mathematical background, the Zeeman Institute (in partnership with Complexity) has recently won EPSRC funding to renew the Centre for Doctoral Training, MathSys -- which already provides funding for a number of PhD students. For those from a more biological background, the newly opened MIBTP training partnership offers many opportunities to work with us. Alternatively, the graduate school offers information on a variety of scholarships which may be helpful. In all cases, the first step should be to contact someone in the Zeeman Instititute -- look at our People page to find a list of our interests -- we can then usually offer advice on funding routes.
Staff in the Zeeman Institute run a number of lecture courses, in different disciplines, that provide a fantastic introduction to our subject areas. In addition, we are always keen to be approached to supervise undergraduate projects and summer projects (support by URSS). Example lecture courses include:
