We are in the "New Biochemistry"
building on the second floor.
We have a funded postdoctoral position now available on protein engineering for vaccine development-
no previous experience of vaccinology/immunology required; please enquire. We are also 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 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 details
, including Doctoral
Training Centres (e.g. Synthetic Biology, Interdisciplinary Bioscience, Biomedical Imaging) and the
Wellcome Trust Structural Biology Programme.
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 before then.
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

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. 2017. 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
regularly with Mark.
