Interdisciplinary Bioscience, Biomedical Imaging) and the Wellcome Trust Programme in Infection

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. When you fill in the University application, you are free to apply to any college you would


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. 2018. Each undergraduate has their own project, with scope for

creativity and important findings.

Masters students

We often take Masters students from European universities for a research project, e.g. through Erasmus,

so please get in touch.
