Positions available

PhD students

PhD positions are available to work in the group (depending on funding), usually starting at the beginning of October. Candidates must have, or expect to graduate with, a first or upper second class MSci/MChem honours degree in chemistry or a degree subject with a major chemistry component. Overseas applicants should have an equivalent qualification. Information on how to apply for postgraduate study at Birmingham can be found on the School of Chemistry website. Applications are best made online, by following the links here.

Postdoctoral research associates

Positions will be advertised, when they become available, at jobs.ac.uk and on this website. If you have, or are interested in applying for, your own postdoc funding, then do contact me - I am happy to help with such applications to join the group. Unfortunately there is little point in contacting me if a position is not currently advertised or you are unable to support yourself financially e.g. through a fellowship, as I will not have funds to support a PDRA.

A postdoctoral position is available to start October 2017 or as soon as possible thereafter. Applications can be made by following the link in this advert.


Opportunities to carry out a research project in the summer vacation preceding the final year of study are often available.

Further information on any of the above can be obtained from Dr. Grainger.
