This project requires an individual that has great attention to detail and in meticulous in their approach to experiments at the bench. The majority of this project will be developing highly novel and unique genetic delivery platforms with high therapeutic and commercial potential. A candidate with future ambition to move into industry or academia would benefit from this PhD program and having supervisors and mentors that that span academia and industry. Previous students who have research in this field and under this team have indeed excelled at both. Finally, students that are also willing to learn new and diverse techniques and liase with a diverse range of future potential collaborators would also find this project very rewarding.
Obviously a candidate with an interest and/or training in molecular biology, virology and immunology would fit well with this project.
