Postdoctoral applications

We have a funded postdoctoral position now available. 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 masters students

We have two CASE DPhil studentships available (i) with AB Vista and (ii) in collaboration with Lee

Sweetlove and Green Biologics- please enquire for details.

Apart from that, 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.

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 Rhodes Scholarships or Clarendon Scholarships. 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. 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.
