Opportunities to join the Webb group


Please contact Dr Mike Webb for further information if you are interested in joining the group.


Postdoctoral Fellowships

The nature of UK/European funding means that flexibly-funded PDRA positions are not generally available. Any specific opportunities will be advertised here, on the University website and on We are however happy to support applications from suitably qualified candidates for Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellowships and the Newton International Fellowship schemes. Mike will work with candidates to support them as they compose their application.

PhD positions

Funded PhD positions within the group are principally available through four distinct mechanisms: the BBSRC and WT-funded schemes run through the Faculty of Biological Sciences, EPSRC-funded studentships awarded by the School of Chemistry and University Scholarships (the principal source of funding for international applicants).

Two specific project opportunities are currently available to work with Mike and Bruce through the BBSRC scheme here. Applicants interested in other aspects of the groups' work are encouraged to apply to the WT scheme here.


Summer studentships

Undergraduates interested in a funded summer placement in the group should contact Mike in the first instance. There are numerous sources of such funding but applications to these are generally coordinated centrally through the School of Chemistry.
