Join our team!

Over the next several months, we will be recruiting students and postdocs to advance projects focusing on the molecular, systems, and chemical biology of bacterial pathogens.

The excitement of scientific inquiry and the opportunities of scientific training should be accessible to and include people with diverse backgrounds, experiences, and aspirations. We strongly encourage applications from members of groups which are under-represented in science.

Graduate students

PhD students are recruited through the Crick Institute’s central PhD program which opens for applications in Autumn each year.


We expect to advertise a postdoc position on the chemical genetics of nitrogen metabolism in M. tuberculosis very soon, to start on 1 September 2021. Please email Eachan if you might be interested.
