3 students working in the Birmingham Fly Facility

We are international research labs at the University of Birmingham that welcome world-wide applicants. Typically, our research teams host technicians, Post-doctoral research fellows, PhD students, Master students and Undergraduate lab project students. We also host undergraduate students seeking a summer placement and scholars from other institutions and countries who wish to collaborate with us during short visit stays. The University of Birmingham also offers opportunities for early career PIs, e.g. the Birmingham Fellows scheme, and academic positions.

We offer research opportunities at any stage in your career: Post-doc, PhD, Master, short-stay visits, undergraduate summer placements. 

There are also multiple fellowships you can apply for to join our labs (e.g. Marie Curie-Sklodowska, EMBO, Human Frontiers, Royal Society, Leverhulme Trust, MIBTP BBSRC, Darwin Trust, etc). 

If you are interested in collaborating with us, please get in touch too.
