The Trapnell Fellowship

jerelle_trapnell

Dr Jerelle Joseph is the current Trapnell Research Fellow at King’s. Affiliated with the Department of Physics, she studies how cells organise their contents via the process of liquid-liquid phase separation.

I joined King’s College in October 2020 as a Junior Research Fellow in Physical and Chemical Sciences. I am extremely grateful to the Trapnell Fund for supporting my research, which involves using multiscale computer simulations to study how the interior of cells is organised.

The Research Fellowship has provided me with the opportunity to establish myself as an independent scientist, to be a part of the amazing community at King’s College, and to work alongside excellent researchers in the Chemistry, Physics and Genetics Departments at Cambridge.

King’s has a strong tradition of post-doctoral research funding; the College has over 130 Fellows, including around 19 Research Fellows at any one time. Research Fellowships are usually for four years, and give the holders an opportunity to establish their career before moving on to become academics, teachers and independent researchers.

Jerelle Joseph’s Research Fellowship is generously supported by the Trapnell Fund, established by Roger Leigh (KC 1927) and Hazel Trapnell.
