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:
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
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/.
