We always welcome enquiries if you are interested in joining the lab.

PhD Students.  Various PhD studentships are available each year. These are awarded competitively within the Medical School and the Department of Biomedical Sciences as well as through other more adhoc schemes. 

Details of current PhD projects can be found here on FindAPhd or please contact us if you have your own project ideas.

Post-Doctoral Research Fellows.  If you are interested in joining the group as a post-doc, we would normally expect you to apply for your own fellowship (for example, from the Wellcome Trust or National Institute of Health or EMBO).  We are always happy to hear from people who are interested in taking this route.  In addition, we occasionally have vacant post-doc positions available on existing grants.  These are advertised on www.jobs.ac.uk, in the scientific press and displayed here.

Project Students and Internships.  We occasionally take undergraduate and Masters-level students for research projects in the group.  Those applying from outside of Sheffield University should send a C.V. to Dr. Johnston  (This email address is being protected from spambots.
