I am part of a few interdisciplinary projects where we (have secured/are short-listed for) funding to support PhD students (ideally someone with strong molecular biology/engineering/computational/statistical/bioinformatics background) in numerous research groups I am affiliated with. In some cases, international students (especially for the prestigious Lord Kelvin Smith PhD Scholarships) can also apply.
These are all listed under
with instructions on who to contact as well as project details (clickable links) also given.
Note that there is a fair bit of bioinformatics involved!
