Thank you for your interest! We are always looking for creative, smart, enthusiastic and friendly people to join the lab.
Contact: If interested, please contact Greg directly by email, sending your CV and the names of at least 2 (preferably 3) referees. Please also take a moment to describe why you are applying to the lab and where you might see an overlap in research interests.
Research Assistants: We may have opportunities from time to time. In particular we have hosted 3 recent graduates enabling them to gain valuable research experience before going on to the PhD programmes of their choice (Cambridge/London/Manchester).
Post-docs: We have an active ERC consolidator grant. We are currently very keen to recruit people who will add to the skill base of the lab in electrophysiology (patch clamp) and optical imaging - motivated in part by many new findings emerging from connectomics work. Of course all strong candidates will be considered seriously. Current lab members have held Dorothy Hodgkin,Henry Wellcome, EMBO, HFSP and Swiss National Science Foundation post-doctoral fellowships.
PhD students: See LMB PhD Programme for details. One student has joined the lab most years. Funding for EU nationals has come from MRC studentships, Boehringer Ingelheim Fonds and the Cambridge Trusts. International students are largely restricted to LMB Cambridge Scholarships. See LMB funding page for details.
Summer students: See LMB Summer Studentships for details. We typically take one or two summer students each year and they have made many valuable contributions to projects. Please read the LMB summer student information and ensure that you follow the general instructions above when contacting Greg. It will be very helpful if you at least one of your referees is a former research supervisor.
University of Cambridge students: We have hosted Part II Neuroscience, Part III Biochemistry and Masters students in the past. All students have gained First class/Distinctions for their project work.
Other opportunities: Greg is the lead PI for the Wellcome Collaborative award supporting the Drosophila Connectomics Group in the University of Cambridge Department of Zoology. Some members of the connectomics team work closely with wet lab scientists at the LMB. There may be positions available from time to time in the group.
