If you are interested in plant environmental stress responses, disease resistance, gene regulatory networks, new technology and exciting applications, I am keen to hear from you and always open to discuss possibilities for Postdocs or PhD students with their own funding. See also FindAPhD.

Post-doctoral fellows

I welcome applications from individuals with a PhD or equivalent training who are seriously pursuing a career in science.
I do not currently have any funded positions for Postdocs. Interested candidates with external funding are welcome to contact me. Also contact me if you have the possibility to apply for your own postdoctoral funding through national and international agencies – if we find a research topic of common interest I will support you in the writing of the fellowship application to come to my lab to carry out the research.
The ideal applicant would have a PhD preferably in biology or bioinformatics.
A strong background in functional genomics and high-throughput analysis would be an asset.

Interested applicants should send a CV, description of research experience and interests, and contact information for references to Prof Alessandra Devoto

Postgraduate studies (MSc and PhD)

Candidates should have a previous degree in a relevant field (e.g. Biology, Bioinformatics, Biotechnology, Biochemistry, Genetics) and a keen interest in discovery!

If you are interested, contact Prof Alessandra Devoto.

Final admission is granted through the School of Biological Sciences at Royal Holloway University of London. For more information see:

Undergraduate students

I have occasionally the opportunity to accommodate enthusiastic and dedicated undergraduate students in our research team. We expect serious effort and long-term commitment, and in return provide the opportunity to become part of an active research project in the lab.
If you are interested, contact Prof Alessandra Devoto.
