The University of Leicester is providing 4 fully-funded PhD studentships as part of Laboratory for Multiscale Emergent Bioengineering.
The projects will establish the next generation of multiscale computational models linking gene and cell interactions that will help engineer personalised asthma and cancer therapies as well as uncover multiscale regenerative and developmental mechanisms.
Benefit to the candidates
Dott. Himanshu lab offers the candidates a multidisciplinary environment where both computational and experimental approaches are synergistically used to understand disease emergence and engineer strategies to silence or reverse the underlying mechanisms. This will enable the candidates to gain crucial interdisciplinary skills required for careers in academia, industry, or non-profit organisations.
As part of these projects, the candidates will regularly interface with Engineers, Life Scientists, and Clinicians. These opportunities will offer the candidates a sheltered real-world experience to explore their research and professional interests and aspirations.
Furthering the candidates' professional development
The funding will cover the fees, stipend, and travel costs. The team is further dedicated to ensuring the career development of the candidates, including helping them learn new skills via attendance at international conferences and summer schools.
