- About The Department
We are engaged in the investigation of basic questions concerning the interaction of chemical substances with biological systems.
Several projects are undertaken in collaboration with other departments in the Faculties of Physiological Sciences and Clinical Medicine. The aim is to develop an understanding of fundamental mechanisms in chemical physiology and pathology, in the action of drugs, and in toxicology.
The Department of Pharmacology is keen to encourage applications from researchers looking to return to science after a career break. The University of Oxford is supporting up to three fellows for a fixed term of two years at 0.5 FTE. Matching funding, support and retraining guidance is provided by the Daphne Jackson Trust. Fellows are hosted within Departments in either the Medical Sciences or Maths, Physical and Life Sciences Divisions, including the Department of Pharmacology.
