[Closes Jan 2017] Studentships available at EPSRC and BBSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Synthetic Biology
The EPSRC and BBSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Synthetic Biology (SynBioCDT) is a doctoral training programme that combines the fundamental understanding of biological systems with the principles of engineering, so as to create the next generation of industrial and academic leaders in the nascent field of Synthetic Biology.
This PhD project with Dr Frank Tietze at the Institute for Manufacturing will be focused on a recent phenomenon that can be labelled “OpenIP”, for instance where large IP owners strategically make IP freely available through patent pledges. These seem to be carefully designed by the companies for different reasons and with a number of restrictions on licensees, such as non-assertion clauses.
The Department of Physics invites applications for a University Lectureship in biological physics, to commence on 1 September 2017 or as soon as possible thereafter. This area of activity is a growing and strategic priority for the Department, underpinned by current research efforts in soft matter and theory of biological systems, and ranging to applications in new biophysical technologies and medical applications.
Applications are invited for the next round of University of Cambridge/ Wellcome Trust Junior Interdisciplinary Fellowships.
