Applications are invited for Marie Curie post-graduate fellowships to visit the University of Sussex Fission Yeast Group for periods of 3-12 months, and use the resources of the Fission Yeast Functional Genomics facility. Libraries of temperature-sensitive and insertionally mutated strains are available for high-throughput screening. Graduate students from EU states outside the United Kingdom, or the associated states, will receive training in the relevant techniques; if appropriate, strains of interest may be characterized by advanced molecular biological and microscopic techniques. Informal enquiries (to email@example.com) are invited from interested students in any of the eligible states. The University operates an equal opportunities policy, particularly with respect to gender and ethnic background.
