We seek applications from outstanding post-graduate candidates with an interest in inorganic synthesis across the breadth of molecular, nano-scale and extended materials chemistry. Twelve fully-funded four-year studentships are available each year, for applicants with related science degrees and/or relevant synthetic experience. Further details of the application procedure can be found below.
Applications from female and other under-represented group candidates are encouraged. The University has recently launched a number of pioneering initiatives to improve access to graduate study, including scholarships for black students or fee waivers for applicants from low income backgrounds.
