    PhD studentships / Demonstratorships in Anatomy at the University of
    Liverpool, UK.

    Period: Sept 2007-Sept 2010

    Applications are invited from graduates, or those who expect to graduate,
    with a First Class Honours, or good Upper Second Class Honours Degree in an

    The stipend will be at Research Council rates (currently 12,600pa),
    additional payment for demonstrating will be available and home/EU tuition
    fees will be paid.

    We are seeking to recruit two graduates in anatomy or closely related
    discipline. The successful candidates will undertake PhD projects in the
    Division of Human Anatomy and Cell Biology (HACB) and in addition, will be
    expected to demonstrate up to six hours per week during term time. The
    studentships can be held in any of the research groups within the Division
    of HACB, please see or email for
    details, but we would be particularly interested in applicants who are
    interested in the following project:

    The comparative functional morphology of the human and ape locomotor system
    under the supervision of Drs, Evie Vereecke and Michael Gunther. The
    specific programme of research will be designed in consultation with the
    successful candidate. The project will be part of other related research -
    such as the evolution of habitual bipedalism - in the Primate Evolution and
    Morphology Group ( The candidate should be
    able to collect, analyse, and interpret anatomical and behavioural data,
    have good communication skills and the ability to work independently. We
    offer a stimulating and internationally-renown research environment with
    state-of-the-art facilities. As part of the studentship, research visits to
    our collaborators nationally and internationally will yield a unique
    insight into the functional interpretation of morphology.
