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 while.

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 entrepreneurship.

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.

Undergraduate students have been authors on several of the group’s papers, including in PNAS and Nature Communications,

as well as patents.
