|PhD student wanted!|
This is VERY off topic, but I have got funding for 2 PhD students to join our group investigating the effects of environmental nano particles on human
lung health, starting at Southampton University in October. The studentships are funded by the British Lung Foundation and the Institute for Life
Sciences, and offer great training.
Trying the normal route for advertising these hasn't been especially successful, so I thought I'd try here, as you lot seem to be able to
solve pretty much any problem!
We're after good postgraduates from either a biology / life sciences or physical sciences background, and a PM to me will get the ball
Spoing! - the sound of an irony meter breaking...

|Good grief! I thought you would be inundated in 2 minuites! |
I'm a mature Ph.D. student and believe me guys it is the best thing since sliced bread. You get to play with concepts that are intensely
interesting and really intelligent people are falling over themselves to help you!
What's more the money is good - you don't pay any taxes or local authority charges and the students union has cheap (ish) beer.
Also when you have a day like I've had today where 6 months of graft are rewarded with a really successful experiment the buzz is better than

As you say, this is may not be the forum for this sort of thing per se, but it's got to be better than New Scientist (cheaper too).
In addition, I have a 1st class Hons. (Chem.), a varied publications list along with many years international postdoctoral experience. Three
industrial (Pharma.) employs have all folded, I'm currently delivering groceries to the old and morbidly obese, therefore immediately available.
