Postdoctoral research fellowships
Applicants are welcome to email a cv and covering letter 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 Chemical Synthesis. In Sept 2018 I will also be taking on one or two PhD students in association with a major grant in the field of Molecular Robotics and Conformational Communication Devices. 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.
Applicants from outside the European Union need to note that they must find for themselves full overseas fees for postgraduate study. You should apply directly to the School of Chemistry at http://www.bris.ac.uk/chemistry/courses/postgraduate/ .
Bristol MSci undergraduates
We take on 2 or 3 final year undergraduate research projects each year: information is circulated to 3rd years 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.
