The Field Group
Welcome to the web pages of Rob Field's group, which is based in the Department of Biological Chemistry at the John Innes Centre.
The Field group has diverse interests, loosely based around understanding the molecular basis of complex biological events. While the theme that runs throughout is carbohydrates, we are not averse to studies on enzymes and natural products more generally. Specific areas of current activity research can be found on the accompanying pages.
The group comprises a mix of chemists and biochemists. Much of our research is collaborative, which sees us engaged with a wide range of chemists, biochemists, structural biologists, microbiologists, plant biologists and biomedics. This provides opportunity for individuals to bring their own particular expertise to the table and to benefit for the wealth and diversity of expertise within the Biological Chemistry Department, the John Innes Centre and the Norwich Research Park more generally.
Enquiries from potential postgraduate and postdoctoral scientists interested in the Field lab are always welcome. Studentship and employment opportunities will be advertised in the popular and scientific press and will be posted on the JIC website:
