We currently have positions available for prospective PhD students for the academic year 2023/24 and would like to encourage you to be in touch! There is a Graduate Open Day on November 1st, 2022 at the Department of Chemistry - come by and have a look.

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. Junior Research Fellowships at Oxford Colleges are also available, and can be found listed in the gazette.

PhD studentships

There are a number of avenues open for joining the group as a PhD student, and the general admissions procedure for Departmental funding is described here.

There are a number of alternative funding sources available, particularly for international students.

Students may also wish to consider applying to one of the Doctoral Training Centres, and conducting their research project with us.

Part II projects

Every year we take Oxford Part II students studying for a degree in Chemistry. Applicants from the Biochemistry course are also welcome.

Summer students

We are open to undergraduate students spending their summer with us performing a small research project and gaining experience in a laboratory environment.
