Mphil Scientific Illustration in Pathology in Pathology at University of Cambridge

University of Cambridge, UK is inviting excellent candidates to apply for a PhD position in pathology. The funds for this fellowship are available for two years. The deadline for applying is March 31, 2020.

Illustrating Emerging Concepts in the Biology of Infectious Disease using Scientific Animation

The candidate will work closely with molecular virologists, epidemiologists and graphic artist(s), in order to apply the latest advances in illustration and animation to explain cutting-edge concepts in virus infection, disease formation and disease management. The project will focus on the transmission of human papillomaviruses, which are responsible for approximately 5% of all human carcinomas, including nearly all cases of cervical cancer, and a significant proportion of head and neck cancers. Although primarily based in the Department of Pathology at the University of Cambridge, the project will involve regular travel between Cambridge and London to liaise with collaborators.

The candidate would be expected to have an interest in illustration and a first or upper-second (2.i) class degree in biology or other relevant subject. Additional training will be provided during the course of the project, and will build on existing skills in animation and disease biology in the Doorbar lab

The Department requires that by the time of interview all potential students must have fulfilled the language requirements for admission.

The studentships are available to UK nationals and EU students who meet the UK residency requirements.
