Opportunities


Please get in touch if you are interested in joining the group as we are always looking for talented and motivated scientists to assist in external fund applications.

PDRA Positions:

If you are interested in joining the group as a PDRA, please visit the postdoctoral fellowship opportunities webpage and indicate which funding schemes you have in mind when getting in contact with Aniello.

PhD Studentships:

We welcome enquiries by email from potential PhD students from the UK and around the world who have (or are about to obtain) a good undergraduate degree in Chemistry or a closely related subject. However if your nationality is from a country outside the EU or the UK, you are classed as an overseas student and will normally have to provide your own sources of funding for maintenance and fees.
