Why Oxford Biochemistry

We can offer world-class facilities, training programs and mentorship. If your application is supported by the Department and has secured funding, we will provide you with office and laboratory space and access to our specialist facilities.
There is a rich tapestry of quantum-related work in and around Oxford (see for example - oxfordquantum.org) as well as significant collaborative activity from industrial partners. The Department is also deeply committed to computational
biochemistry, with three academic positions providing over 20 PDRAs and graduate students. The Department has also been instrumental in setting up the

DPhil in Computational Discovery in partnership with IBM.

If you think you might be interested in making an application, then please get in contact as soon as possible. A member of our finance team will be able to assist you with costing of proposals.
