Dr Martin Day 

I graduated with a BSc in Applied Biology (Hatfield University: 1971) and did my PhD in Microbial Genetics (University College London: 1975).  I moved briefly as a Post doctoral Research Associate (Warwick University; 1975-76) before taking up a lecturing position (UWIST, Cardiff; 1976-89).  I was a short term EMBO fellow (Basle; 1981) and became a Senior Lecturer (Cardiff University) in 1989 and Reader (Cardiff University; 1996 to present).  I took a sabbatical (OSU, USA 2002) to study phage taxonomy.
