Joining the Group

Projects, Studentships and Vacancies

Like most research groups there are a wide range of ages and experience working in the Electron Microscopy Group. There are often 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. 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 the  best method is to read through the research pages of the website and identify those group members whose research interests you. Informal enquiries are welcome and will usually result in a discussion over coffee to see where any project may go.


If you are interested in applying for a PhD in the Cambridge Materials Science Department

There is extensive information about applying for the PhD programme on the main Department website ( However applications are typically made to join specific research groups. If you are interested in applying to join the group as a PhD student then you should look at the PhD projects page to get an idea of the sort of postgraduate projects we have on offer. This list is not exhaustive and if you would like to discuss potential projects or research areas with specific members of the team then you should contact them to arrange a meeting.


If you are a post-doctoral researcher

Post-doctoral research positions in the group become available at different times throughout the year. These are always posted on the main university jobs site (, however we will list links to these adverts and associated particulars on this page.
