Funding Opportunities

We are always pleased to consider applications from potential group members. Our research is broadly described as materials chemistry, but occasionally crosses into aspects of physics and computer sciences, and involves both experimental and computational approaches. If you have a background and interest in these or related areas and would like to join the group, please get in touch.


We regularly host a number of undergraduate students for their final year research projects or summer internships. Project topics and scope can be tailored to your degree requirements, and cover areas suitable for Chemistry, Physics or Computer Sciences. Please contact James to discuss potential opportunities.


We welcome applications from candidates with a background in Chemistry, Physics or Computer Sciences. If no current positions are advertised, possible sources of funding may include:


We welcome applications from postgraduate scientists hoping to join the group as a postdoctoral or early career fellow. A range of schemes are available depending on career stage, including:
