Postdoctoral research fellowships
Following recent award of an ERC Advanced Grant, two Postdoctoral Research Associate positions are available in the Clayden group, to start late in 2020 or early 2021. Applications can be made through this link (closing date 30 June):
In addition, a further Postdoctoral Research Associate position is available to work on a collaborative project in the Clayden and Collins groups, on driving molecular motion using enantioselective redox chemistry (closing date 3 July):
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 Technoilogy-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.
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 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.
