Opportunities for Research Experience and Training

Applications to join our group are always extremely welcome from outstanding and enthusiastic Part II, PhD and postdoctoral candidates. Our main activity is Organic Synthesis, but we have a strong interest in Molecular Recognition, Photochemistry, Electronic Spectroscopy, Optoelectronics and Photobiology. All members of the group are exposed to a wide range of chemistry and techniques. Please contact Harry directly by phone, fax or email if you would like further information.

Information specific to:
Part II
Summer Students/Internships
PostDoctoral Research

Section 1. Information for prospective Part II students (internal Oxford 4th year):
Harry Anderson supervises about 3-4 Part II students each year. These projects involve a wide range of topics and generally include some organic synthesis in combination with some photophysical or biological experiments. Contact Harry by email to discuss available research areas.

Section 2. Information for prospective visiting research students:
The Anderson group hosts 1-3 visiting research students each summer during June to September, for research secondments lasting 2-3 months. If you are interested in carrying out research with the group, you will need to secure a grant to cover the cost of your accommodation and travel. You will also need to arrange for two of your current academic mentors to send Harry Anderson letters of recommendation. Contact Harry by email to discuss available research areas.

Section 3. Information for prospective PhD students:
Applications from well qualified and highly motivated PhD candidates are always welcome. Information on Graduate Admissions, Studentships and sources of funding can be found in the Oxford University Graduate Prospectus, which is on-line: http://www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/postgraduate_courses/.
