If you are interested in joining the group there are a number of avenues that we could explore, please get in touch.

We are currently recruting two Postdoctoral Research Fellows, closing date 12/10/2023.
The successful applicants will participate in the project DYNBIOTICS. The overarching aim of this project is to understand the dynamics of antibiotics transport in individual bacteria in order to tackle antimicrobial resistance that causes a yearly death toll of 5 million people. This project is funded by the UKRI via the Frontier Research Guarantee scheme that is the UK equivalent of an ERC Consolidator Award.
These posts are available from the 8th of January 2024 (or shortly thereafter) on a three-year fixed-term contract.
The successful applicants will have extensive expertise in molecular microbiology and bioinformatics or in biophysics. During this project, the successful candidates will discover the biophysical processes and molecular mechanisms that permit individual bacteria to survive antibiotic treatment and will identify novel therapies that eradicate drug-resistant bacteria.

We are also recruting a PhD student, closing date 1/11/2023.
The successful applicant will participate in the GW4 BioMed2 Doctoral Training Partnership.
The overarching aim of this project is to discover novel antibiotic molecules by developing a rapid and robust microfluidic screening platform in collaboration with DSTL.
