The lab is based in the Cambridge University
Department of Pharmacology
on Tennis Court Road.
We have one funded postdoctoral position
, to join the lab in Cambridge University Department of Pharmacology.
Contact Mark to discuss. 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.
The lab and University run a range of events to support postdoctoral fellows and promote their careers, including:
Postdocs of Cambridge Society
with social events, training sessions (idea development, leadership, grant
writing, managing scientists), and connecting to career opportunities.
Potential Doctoral students
We are looking to welcome new Doctoral students into the lab. There are various 3 year or 4 year
fully funded doctoral
for students at Cambridge, including Doctoral Training Centres (e.g.
for international students, and many places funded via colleges. Deadlines are early, so get in contact with Mark
Students are welcome from a range of backgrounds. 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 like. The lab is not
able to host MPhil students.
Part II students
We look forward to taking 2-3 Part II students for Pharmacology practical research projects. Each undergraduate has their
own project, with close day-to-day support by a member of the lab, along with scope for creativity and important findings.
Undergraduate students have been authors on several of the group’s recent papers and patents.
