Postdoctoral research fellowships
I am happy to receive emails about postdoc positions for consideration at any time. Suitable candidates are held on file until the next opportunity becomes available. If you have a very strong cv, you are welcome to email to discuss potential external funding applications (e.g. Marie Skłodowska Curie Fellowships, DFG or DAAD Fellowships, Newton Fellowships).
We usually take on 1-3 PhD students in September of each year, typically with first class MChem/MSci degrees in Chemistry, or equivalent. Some of these positions are available through the Bristol Centre for Doctoral Training in Technology-Enhanced Chemical Synthesis .
For either entry route, please make initial contact with me by email, sending a cv. You should also apply directly to the School of Chemistry at http://www.bris.ac.uk/chemistry/courses/postgraduate/ , mentioning that you are interested in working in the Clayden group.
Bristol MSci undergraduates
We take on 3 or 4 final year undergraduate research projects each year: information is circulated to 3rd year MSci students in the spring term before the October project start date.
Internships (Erasmus/Masters/PhD level)
Students from EU Universities / French Grandes Écoles with enquiries about short (3-12 month) research placements are welcome to contact me by email. We sometimes have limited space for EU students wishing to undertake short (usually 3-12 month) research placements. In general, 3 to 6 month placements between April and September are most practical to accommodate.
