Joining the lab

Cambridge is a wonderful place. If you would like to join the lab as a PhD student or postdoctoral fellow, please contact Dr Hendrik van Veen ( for further enquiries. Possibilities exist for funding by the BBSRC, MRC and other funding bodies.

Summer students are very welcome too, especially in the summer months from early July to the end of September, and we appreciate international applications through funding schemes such as Erasmus Traineeships, Amgen Scholars Programme, and others.

Our lab draws students from all continents of the world. We therefore have a very interesting blend of cultures and customs in an environment in which you will have ample opportunity to be yourself and to showcase your talents in various forms.

Future group members are expected to show a strong interest in the biochemistry, molecular biology, electrophysiology and structural biology of substrate-translocating membrane proteins.
