I started my lab in the Sheffield Institute of Nucleic Acids (SInFoNiA) within the MBB department in May 2017. Prior to this, I performed my post-doctoral work in the lab of Professor Ed Hurt in the BZH at the University of Heidelberg, in Germany and my PhD in the lab of Professor David Tollervey at the University of Edinburgh.

We are always interested in applications from highly motivated researchers who would like to perform graduate studies or post-doctoral work in the lab.

If you are interested in joining the lab for either graduate or post-doctoral studies, please contact me, as I would be happy to discuss potential projects and funding possibilities with you.

We currently have one fully-funded PhD studentship available for a home/EU students. If you are interested in applying for this position, please email me with your CV and a short description of your research background and interests.
