Synthetic Biology in Cambridge

 

Graduate student positions available with Sam Rodriques in the Applied Biotechnology Laboratory at the Francis Crick Institute. Projects include work on connectomics, viral vectors for gene therapy, and sequencing-based diagnostics for cancers and rare diseases.

  • Deadline: unspecified
  • Funding: unspecified
  • Location: Francis Crick Institute, London

The Applied Biotechnology Laboratory at the Francis Crick Institute is seeking graduate students and postdocs to start in 2021.

We are a community of engineers and scientists operating at the interface of biology and engineering to develop first-in-class biotechnologies that enable us to map, control, and build biological systems. New and ongoing projects in the lab include work on connectomics (brain mapping), viral vectors for gene therapy, and sequencing-based diagnostics for cancers and rare diseases. Every technology we develop is oriented towards a specific unmet need in biology and medicine, and we leverage an international network of philanthropists and investors to help us deploy our technologies worldwide. We welcome ambitious applicants with backgrounds in the physical sciences and engineering, as well as in neuroscience or biology. All positions are fully funded, including stipends and generous unrestricted funding for research expenses.
