Applications are open for a fully funded PhD studentship in ageing/stem cell biology and chronobiology

We are offering a competitive PhD opportunity funded by BBSRC Doctoral Training Partnership (Newcastle/Liverpool/Durham) with a start date in October 2020 and fully paid at RCUK rate for 4 years. The project title is: ‘The role of circadian rhythms and redox signalling in musculoskeletal stem cell ageing’ and the project will be using a range of state-of-the-art laboratory techniques and mathematical modelling. This project is a cross-institutional collaboration between the primary supervisor Dr Vanja Pekovic-Vaughan and the UoL supervisory team (Dr Aphrodite Vasilaki, Prof Richard Barret-Jolley, Dr Mirela Domijan) and supervisors at Uo Newcastle (Prof David Young and Dr Daryl Shanley), where the student will have the opportunity to undergo further training.

If you are interested and would like to have a chat either in person or by email, we are happy to provide more detail on the project and help with the application process (vpv35@liv.ac.uk)
