The postholders will be full members of the Oxford lab, while based primarily at the Wellcome Trust “Flagship Centre” within the Oxford University Clinical Research Unit (OUCRU) in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam – this houses over 300 researchers specialising in infectious disease and global healthcare, in one of Vietnam’s largest hospitals and the hub for a network of Oxford clinical sites across South-East Asia.

The posts would suit postdoctoral researchers interested in career acceleration through joint publications in the engineering and clinical literature, entrepreneurship and patenting opportunities, which are strongly encouraged alongside co-supervision of Oxford doctoral students, junior researchers, and other appropriate opportunities. You will also develop, establish and pursue appropriate analytical protocols and techniques to support the Wellcome innovations flagship research. These full-time posts are fixed-term until 31 August 2022, and come with an attractive package of overseas benefits.
