Work with us

When positions become available within the group they will be advertised here.

Postdoctoral Researchers

We welcome applications worldwide from candidates with high quality CVs and relevant experience. Funded vacancies will be advertised here as they arise. Postdoctoral workers are particularly encouraged to apply for independent funding, for example via Marie Curie Incoming or Intra-European Fellowships. Excellent candidates will receive strong support with these applications including assistance with research proposals.

Graduate Students

If you have your own funding or intend to apply for an independent scholarship then apply as soon as you are able. Informal enquiries are welcome. Available projects vary from being 100% computational, to collaborative projects combining experimental and computational work – the precise mix will be dependent upon the project and the nature of the funding.

Current Opportunities

Four-year fully funded PhD in Artificial Intelligence algorithms to predict aggregation and gel phenomena in peptide synthesis and isolation.

Deadline: Saturday, September 30th 2023

Three-Year fully funded PhD in Artificial Intelligence algorithms to design and optimize multi-component soft materials aligned with MSCA MultiSMART Doctoral Network.

Deadline: Sunday, April 30th 2023


Undergraduate Students

Each year 2 or 3 final year students join the group for their final year undergraduate research project. Although individual projects vary, they follow the main themes ongoing in the research group. Much of the work performed by undergraduate students is published and a number of undergraduate students from the group have gone on to secure PhD studentships. Available projects vary from being 100% computational (i.e. no bench work), to collaborative projects combining experimental and computational work – the precise mix can be tailored to the interests and skills of the student.

Please feel free to contact us to discuss our research in more detail, and to arrange a visit to the group.

Undergraduate Summer Students

The group has hosted several summer students (typically, those who have just completed their 2nd or 3rd year) over the past few years. These studentship positions are funded through one of several streams including the RSC, Carnegie, and Strathclyde. The deadlines for application to these awards are quite early in the year so students considering to apply should contact us as soon as possible to discuss what possibilities are available.
