Projects, Studentships and Vacancies

There are opportunities to join our research team at all levels. Please read through the appropriate sections to learn more about these opportunities:


If you are a current Cambridge undergraduate student

There are often small research projects ideally suited to run through the undergraduate vacations, involving data analysis, technique development or the study of specific materials. The nature of these projects changes with the exact details of the research being done in the group. If you are interested in undertaking a project, you are welcome to make informal enquiries to members of the group. This will usually result in a discussion over coffee to see where any project may go.
