Creative, enthusiastic new members are the lifeline of the group and we’re always looking to welcome new researchers from a wide range of career stages and backgrounds.


Internships are suitable for relatively short projects (1–4 months) and an excellent way to dive into a fun research challenge. Paid internships are possible if you have valid status in the UK (e.g. student or work visa). Feel free to get in touch with Hessam to enquire about possible internship opportunities.

Nuffield placements

If you are in high school, Nuffield placements are an excellent way to get your hands dirty and experience working in a research group. We welcomed three Nuffield students in 2023 and are looking forward to more students joining this summer. If you are specifically interested in a placement within the group, please let Hessam know as early as possible so we can look into the possibility of hosting your placement here.

Undergraduate & post-grad taught projects

We host 1–4 post-graduate taught (PGT) students every summer. On top of that, at least one fourth year BSc/MChem project student joins us every year. If projects in the group fit your research interests, it might be a good idea to get in touch early to see if hosting your project here will be possible.

PhD/MSc supervision

We welcome applications from enthusiastic undergraduate/master students in any STEM field, particularly those with a background in chemistry, life sciences, engineering and computing.

Post-doctoral research

Please contact Hessam directly via e-mail to discuss PDR opportunities.

None of the above?

There may still be a way we could work together. Send us an email with your interests and availability to find out if there are any suitable opportunities.
