Teaching Biological Physics
Undergraduates: We are involved in teaching the 4th year Major Option Biological Physics, the Short Option Introduction to Biological Physics and the Biophysics Practical course. Teaching materials for the Short Option can be downloaded from here. Richard Berry is the senior physics tutor at St Catherine's College. St Catz takes ~8 new physics undergraduates each year. There's more on how to apply on the college and Physics Department web-sites.
Graduates can join the group either via the sub-department of Condensed Matter Physics or the Doctoral Training Centre at the Life Sciences Interface (DTC). There is also a new DTC in Systems Biology involving collaborating labs.
