Key Research Interests and Expertise
Life in our research groupAt UEA I have supervised research projects carried out by postdoctoral researchers, PhD students, MSc students, technical staff and visitors continuously over the past 30 years or so, and it is a source of great pride for me to see that these researchers have gone on to positions of significant research leadership not only in the UK, but also in (alphabetical order) Algeria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Columbia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, India, Iran, Iraq, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, Pakistan, Spain, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, US, Uzbekistan, and Vietnam. One of the reasons that these scientists have done so well is that my lab consistently attracts the very best students and researchers and consistently produces the very best research papers illustrating significant advances in knowledge. This is as true of the current cohort as it was of the very first. The secret? That is easy: excellent students and researchers, interesting and important research projects, excellent facilities, and a friendly and supportive working environment. I would like to say this is true of my lab only, but it is also true throughout the School. And this research excellence in depth in the School of Biological Sciences provides a vital, dynamic research environment that benefits everyone, but especially those in my group.
PhD PositionsPlease email me to discuss PhD opportunities and projects within the School of Biological Sciences
Postdocs & FellowsI am always happy to discuss possibilities for postdoctoral work and collaborations. Possible funding routes include applying for fellowships, e.g. EU Marie Curie fellowships, with me acting as sponsor, or grant applications with you as a named postdoc.
