We are looking for recent graduates and postdocs with expertise in immunology and CRISPR/Cas9 systems in Plasmodium to help develop our sporozoite vaccine program. If you are interested in applying for a position, sponsoring a fellowship application or discussing opportunities please get in touch.


For PhD students


To join the lab you must obtain a studentship or scholarship that covers your fees and gives you a stipend. There are several of these open to UK students and those from abroad, through national or international funding bodies with many specific to various home countries. At Imperial there are several programmes, which may be relevant to you, for example the Wellcome Trust 4 year PhD programme in the Molecular and Cellular basis of infection <here> or the PhD programme through the Institute for Chemical Biology <here> (to name two) or visit the departmental website that has links to other options College wide.



For Postdoctoral fellows


If you are bright, ambitious and have a strong CV, you may well be in the running for a postdoctoral research fellowship and, if you click with the lab, we’re always willing to pull out the stops to help you get funded.


We’re particularly keen on applications from students or post-doctoral scientists with skills outside the box from computational biology, maths, physical sciences, engineering or chemistry. We’ll teach you how to be a cellular parasitologist, you teach us how to think differently!
