Postdoctoral applications

We are keen to sponsor candidates, either with PhDs or coming to the end of their PhD, to apply for

postdoctoral fellowship awards. Get in contact as early as you can, because this process always takes a


The lab and Department run a range of events to support postdocs and promote their careers, including:

Oxford Biochemistry Postdoc Association helps to bridge different labs in Biochemistry and other

Departments, run training sessions, and connect to career opportunities.

Oxford Biotech Society brings many companies into the Department, as well as promoting


Medical Sciences Division training courses in e.g. leadership, grant writing, managing scientists.

Potential Doctoral students

We are looking to welcome new Doctoral students into the lab. There are various 3 year or 4 year

doctoral programmes for students at Oxford (please find details here), including Doctoral Training

Centres (e.g. Interdisciplinary Bioscience, Biomedical Imaging) and the Wellcome Trust Programme in

Infection Immunology and Translational Medicine.

For non-UK residents, scholarships for a 3 year DPhil are the most common funding scheme (a PhD is

called a DPhil in Oxford): deadlines are in January, so get in contact with Mark well before then. One can

also be funded from the National Institutes of Health Oxford-Cambridge Scholars Program

Students are welcome from a range of backgrounds. Each student will be given a project suitable for

their skills and fully supported as they learn skills in new areas, via training within the lab and through

short training courses in the Department and University. When you fill in the University application, you

are free to apply to any college you would like.

Part II students

We look forward to taking 2-3 Part II students from Oxford University Department of Biochemistry or

Department of Chemistry from Sept. 2020. Each undergraduate has their own project, with scope for

creativity and important findings.
