Opportunities

We are always looking to recruit talented and commited scientists. If you are interested in working in the O’Reilly group then please get in touch.

We do encourage researchers who would like to join our research team to apply for fellowship opportunities, for more details contact roreilly@bham.ac.uk directly.

Postdoctoral Positions

Specific postdoctoral positions within the O’Reilly group will be advertised on the University website and www.jobs.ac.uk when funding is available. However, if you can apply for your own funding then please contact me in advance. Please send a CV and covering letter, along with any enquiries.

PhD Positions

PhD positions are available in our group each year, usually starting in October. If you are interested in doctoral studies in the group then please contact us as soon as possible. An application should consist of your CV, a cover letter, and the names of two academic mentors who know your work and could provide a reference. There are a number of scholarships available through the University to fund graduate studies. We also have a number of students funded through the China Scholarship Scheme. 

Funding is generally available for UK/EU students, please contact ROR (r.oreilly@bham.ac.uk) if interested.

Applicants should have (or be about to receive) an honours degree (at least II.1 or equivalent and a Masters degree is preferred) in chemistry, or other relevant discipline, and should have experience with organic and/or polymer synthesis and characterization. This studentship only provides funding for UK/EU students and funding is provided for 3.5 years.

Summer Students

We can sometimes accommodate talented and motivated undergraduates during the summer vacation period for stays of approximately 10 weeks. Please be note that such placements need to be arranged well in advance. To apply, please send a CV and provide the name of a mentor who you have worked with before.
