Two competitively funded PhD positions are available to work with Dr Alexander Fletcher and collaborators at the interface of applied mathematics and cell and developmental biology at the University of Sheffield, UK.
Position 1 (deadline 6th January 2023): Understanding tissue patterning in a fluctuating environment https://www.findaphd.com/phds/project/bbsrc-white-rose-dtp-studentship-understanding-tissue-patterning-in-a-fluctuating-environment/?p147453
Position 2 (deadline 13th January 2023): Dissecting the developmental signalling logic of Hirschsprung disease in vitro and in silico https://www.findaphd.com/phds/project/mrc-dimen-doctoral-training-partnership-dissecting-the-developmental-signalling-logic-of-hirschsprung-disease-in-vitro-and-in-silico/?p149946
Both projects would be suitable for a mathematics/physics student who is keen to apply their expertise to biology, or a biology student who is keen to develop quantitative skills. Students will be provided with an interdisciplinary training in modelling, quantitative analysis and laboratory skills.
