We are in the "New Biochemistry"
building on the second floor.
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
(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

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
Potential doctoral or master
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
, 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
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.
