We currently have positions available for prospective PhD students, and always welcome applications to join or collaborate with our research group.

The research backgrounds of the scientists in our group are varied and inter-disciplinary, spanning from the physical sciences to biology. If you are interested in working with us please feel free to email.

Post-doctoral positions

Current vacancies are advertised on the Department of Chemistry website. If there are no positions listed, we nonetheless welcome speculative applications.

Furthermore, a range of independent funding sources exist, from both national and international sources. Nationally funded opportunities include the Royal Society, Wellcome Trust, EPSRC, BBSRC, and MRC fellowships. Alternatively european and international sources such as the Marie-Curie, EMBO and HFSP programmes might be appropriate. Junior Research Fellowships at Oxford Colleges are also available, and can be found listed in the gazette.
