Each year the group typically takes on one to three new DPhil students to work on our key research themes. The application process is organized centrally through the Graduate Studies Office, with a series of set deadlines at which point all applications received are then processed (gathered fields). The key deadline - in respect of funding/scholarships is in late January each year. Details of the application procedure can be found here with further information from the central University here. Interested students are always welcome to come to the Chemistry Research Laboratory to have a look around, meet the group and discuss available projects. Get in touch by email to sort out arrangements in advance. There are a number of possible avenues for funding, including scholarships applied for through the University, and we have a good recent track record with these.
Simon is also Director of the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Inorganic Chemistry for Future Manufacturing (OxICFM) - a £10.4M centre for training the next generation of doctoral scientists in inorganic synthesis. 12 doctoral studentships are available each year (starting in each of 2019-2023) as part of this programme (across the whole breadth of inorganic chemistry, and a number of the current group are part of this programme. The application procedure for OxICFM is also run through the University's central system, and includes a formal selection interview. More details can be found here.
