PhD opportunities

The School of Chemistry is committed to tackling current and future scientific challenges, and our current research priorities, facilities and infrastructure put us in a strong position to achieve this.

Of course, we also need enthusiastic and enterprising young research workers who are eager to learn, determined to succeed, and committed to carrying out research to the highest standards of excellence. Currently, there are over 100 postgraduate students and postdoctoral research fellows carrying out research across a broad range of chemical disciplines.

We normally have up to 20 PhD studentships available to start each year. For the latest information, including how to visit us and how to apply, please follow the links the below.
