PhD studentship - endosymbiotic kinetoplastid - position open

Exploring the genomic evolution and biology of a unique endosymbiosis - Neoparamoeba perurans

We are looking for a motivated and capable PhD candidate to join us to link with new RCUK-funded project to understand the role of Perkinsela, a kinetoplastid endosymbiont, in the biology of a major salmon pathogen - N. perurans. This is a unique endosymbiosis, and an opportunity to use cutting edge 'omic technologies to explore its biology and evolution. You can find out more here

The studentship is NERC funded, University of Glasgow-based. You will benefit from expert supervision from Dr. Guillame Chomicki (Durham); Prof. Mike Barrett (Glasgow); and me - Dr. Martin Llewellyn (Glasgow).
