We are in the "New Biochemistry"

building on the second floor.

           

Postdoctoral applications

We have two ERC-funded postdoctoral positions available (closing date July 4 2014):

(i) to enhance circulating tumour cell capture and analysis, ideal for someone with experience in cell

biology

(ii) to create a new generation of protein interactions and apply this to challenges in early diagnosis,

ideal for someone with experience in protein biochemistry, either from protein engineering/selection or

structural biology.

Please e-mail Mark your CV as soon as possible for initial enquiries.

Also 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.

Potential doctoral or masters students

We are looking to welcome new doctoral students or masters 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. Synthetic Biology, Interdisciplinary Bioscience, Biomedical Imaging) and the

Wellcome Trust Structural Biology Programme. Clarendon Scholarships for a 3 year DPhil are the most

common funding scheme for non-UK residents. (A PhD is called a DPhil in Oxford.) Students are

welcome from a wide range of backgrounds, including biology/biochemistry, chemistry and physics. 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.

Masters students may be supported by Rhodes Scholarships or Clarendon Scholarships.

Closing dates for funding to start in October 2014 have all passed.

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. 2015. Each undergraduate has their own project, with scope for

creativity and important findings. Undergraduates have achieved authorship on some of the lab's recent

papers. They are supported carefully day-to-day by a graduate student or postdoc in the lab and meet at

least weekly with Mark.
