Postgraduate vacancies

We aim to recruit 60-70 postgraduates each year to our PhD and Masters courses and also to our various centres for doctoral training. We cover a very broad range of subjects and applications are welcomed in all areas of chemistry at any time of the year.

Below are highlighted just a few of the many projects available. Please note, unless otherwise indicated the MScR projects require students to be self-funding.
