Joining the Lab

We are constantly looking for enthusiastic, ambitious, hardworking people who are interested in joining the lab. 

If you are interested in joining the group at any level, you should contact me directly to discuss potential projects.


Graduate Students

We always want to hear from students interested in our research. Graduate students usually join the department via the excellent MBB PhD program, you can apply here. We also have access to studentships from the BBSRC White Rose Doctoral Training Program - these will be advertised when available.

The University of Sheffield have an incredibly strong and supportive postgraduate community and enjoys support from a number of UK research council funding bodies. Further details on the funding opportunities available at the university are available here. Well qualified and motivated graduates should contact me directly to discuss potential projects and options for funding.

Fully funded PhD studentships in the Bose lab will be advertised on this page as they become available. 


Post-doctoral Research

We welcome applications from talented scientists with diverse research backgrounds. Our multidisciplinary research means we can provide training for researchers with a strong track record who are motivated to gain experience and develop skills in different areas and techniques. There are several possible sources of funding for post-doctoral research, including but not limited to:  

•    HFSP Long-Term Fellowships
•    Sir Henry Wellcome Postdoctoral Fellowships
•    Newton International Fellowships
•    EU Marie Curie Fellowships

Most funding sources have deadlines of up to one year in advance of starting the project. Therefore, if you are interested in joining the group as a post-doc, you should contact us at least six months in advance of the planned start date to discuss potential projects and funding opportunities.

Project Students and Internships.

Enthusiastic and interested students who wish to apply for summer studentships should contact me directly, including a CV and a brief description of your scientific interests and goals. There are a number of potential funding sources for summer projects. However, most have application deadlines early in the new year, so I would encourage interested applicants to contact me a soon as possible following the Christmas vacation.
