Graduate Laboratory Experience Placement

Graduate Laboratory Experience Placement in the D’Arcy Thompson Unit, School of Life Sciences

We are delighted to announce that are seeking to appoint two recent graduates (graduating in 2021 or 2022) for our laboratory experience placement. We recognise that Biomedical and Life Sciences Graduates in 2021 and 2022 will have had their research experience, in particularly wet-lab experiences, curtailed due to social distancing measures and other restrictions.

Celebrating Success as in-person Graduation Returns

Over the past two weeks, the University of Dundee has been celebrating graduation. Last week, the graduands from 2022 crossed the stage at the Caird Hall to receive their degrees. This week we have welcomed back the classes of 2020 and 2021 who missed out on an in-person event due to the covid pandemic. Alongside the University led events of the graduation ceremony, garden party and ball, the School hosted a Graduation Reception in the Street area for the graduates, friends, family and staff.

Sisters’ success a cause for double graduation celebration

Two sisters will make the University of Dundee’s Graduation celebrations a family affair this week.

Jireh and Jasleen de Guzman will cross the Caird Hall stage to collect their qualifications at the same ceremony on Friday, watched on by their nearest and dearest.

The pair, from Brechin, have gained qualifications in the Life Sciences sector with Jireh set to collect a BSc (Honours) in Pharmacology with a Year in Industry, and Jasleen an Integrated Masters in Biochemistry.
