Collaboration, Funding & Vacancies


We hold multiple collaborations spanning both industry and academia.

We are part of the Splice Select network is a BBSRC-funded network which aims to understand the molecular basis of regulating gene expression. More details can be found online.

As part of the University of Strathclyde/GSK collaborative programme, the Burley group offers PhD studentships that are based at the University of Strathclyde and funded by the University, the EPSRC & GSK. Students are co-supervised by chemistry academics and a senior chemist/biopharmaceutical scientist from GSK.  Students will have the unique opportunity to spend at least three months of the studentship at the GSK Medicines Research Centre in Stevenage, England.
