Oxford is one of the leading chemistry research departments in the world with around 80 academic staff carrying out international-level research, and an annual research income of around £15 million. The latest UK Research Assessment Exercise confirmed that Oxford Chemistry has the highest "power rating" (breadth and depth of science) in the UK. We are always looking to recruit talented scientists. If you are interested in working in the Paton group then please get in touch with a CV.


PhD Studentships

The group participates in several Centres for Doctoral Training at the University of Oxford, each of which provides provides four year fully funded graduate studentships. These are: Theory and Modelling in the Chemical Sciences (TMCS), Synthesis for Biology and Medecine (SBM) and Systems Approaches to the Biological Sciences (SABS). We invite prospective students to get in touch.
If you have your own funding or intend to apply for an independent scholarship then apply as soon as you are able. The University of Oxford participates in a number of Graduate Scholarship Schemes for International students. Informal enquiries are welcome.



Visiting Researchers

Applications for short research stays are welcomed from postgraduate researchers or faculty members based in the UK or overseas. It may be possible to support these visits through Travel Grants offered by the Royal Society or the Royal Society of Chemistry.
