Fully funded PhD position

Interested in finding ways to beat drug-resistance in cancer? We are inviting applications for a fully funded (UK residents only) PhD position for a motivated student interested in studying the mechanisms of drug-resistance in colorectal cancer and how targeting the mRNA translation machinery could increase the anti-cancer drug efficacy.

Working in a highly collaborative setting between the RNA biology (led by yours truly) and functional genomics (led by Dr. Simon McDade) groups at the Patrick G. Johnston Centre for Cancer Research, you will apply a range of state-of-the art RNA-biology, and genomics techniques, bioinformatics. If that intrigued you, then check out this link and apply.
