prospective students

Honours students: We typically accept one honours student per year. If you got something brilliant in mind, involving science communication, bioinformatics, or wet-lab experiments, run it by us. We are always open to new ideas.

Graduates students: We are currently looking for a PhD student to start in Sep 2016 or Jan 2017.

Postdocs: I wish! We’d love to have you, but just can’t swing it right now. That goes for you too international applicants. We’d happily sponsor any fellowship applications for postdocs wanting to get funding to work in the lab.



  • Domestic PhD students: Want a PhD? Then send me your CV and maybe we can get the ball rolling.
  • Undergraduate science writers in residence: Do you love to write fun, engaging stories about science? Send me a sample of your writing and some potential stories ideas. If they look good, you can join our team of writers in residence.
