We are always pleased to hear from candidates interested in joining the lab.
A variety of funds are available to support summer placements in the laboratory, usually for periods of 8-10 weeks. Please contact us early in the year if you are considering applying to a summer placement. It is not usually practicable to consider short-term placements for undergraduates at other times of the year. Some sources of funding for summer students are available from http://biosciencecareers.wordpress.com/summer-studentships/
We are happy to consider applications from suitably qualified applicants from the UK or abroad for research studentships. Informal enquiries should be addressed to Professor Taylor (email@example.com) as early as possible in the academic year for which you hope to secure admission.
Many research studentships (BBSRC, Wellcome Trust, BHF) now include a first year during which you gain research experience in 2-3 different laboratories ('research rotations') before deciding on the lab in which to begin studies for a PhD. Summaries of the projects currently offered for research rotations in my lab can be found here: BBSRC, Wellcome Trust/MRC and BHF.
Consult the department's web pages (http://www.phar.cam.ac.uk/postgraduate/) for further details of graduate admissions procedures.
Postdoctoral research fellows
Enquiries from candidates within the UK or abroad who are interested in joining the lab as postdoctoral fellows are invited to contact Professor Taylor (firstname.lastname@example.org) well in advance of the preferred starting date. Early enquires allow time to arrange visits or meetings, to prepare applications for funding, and to catch funding deadlines, some of which occur only once each year. We are happy to consider enquiries from applicants at every level of experience, from graduate students close to finishing a PhD to experienced researchers seeking to establish an independent research group by applying for competitive research fellowships. We welcome applications from the UK and abroad. When we have specific posts available within the lab, details will be posted here.
Please address enquires to Colin Taylor (email@example.com).
