We are always happy to support applications for independent Research Fellowships for candidates of exceptional academic calibre. We are strongly committed to mentorship of our Research Fellows, providing a supportive environment that encourages intellectual freedom and the generation of new ideas. Our Research Fellows are given unrestricted access to the group’s facilities and supervise their own Part II students.
The difficult reality is that there are always many more good candidates than there are Fellowships available. The Department of Chemistry has its own process for prioritising support for Fellowship applications, details of which can be found here. Informal applications should be directed to Professor O'Hare in the first instance, and are most helpful if they include a CV, an indication of the proposed support mechanism, and an outline of the research to be undertaken in Oxford.
