We are always looking for smart and interested people to join us, so if you're interested in coming to study or to visit, then just email Dr. Stephen Payne.
If you are a current undergraduate or masters student and thinking of applying for a DPhil (what Oxford calls a PhD), do read the information on the Department website and the University website first - they will be able to give you information about scholarships, funding and application procedures and deadlines. Do note that funding via the group is only available for specific projects, which are always advertised via the Department website jobs page. The different research areas will give some idea of the projects that we're working on, although they may not have the most up-to-date information, so email if you want to know more or if you are thinking of applying.
If you are a current undergraduate or masters student and looking for research experience over a vacation, the group doesn't generally have funding for this, but there are two excellent schemes available, through the Wellcome Trust or the Nuffield Foundation.
If you are a current graduate student looking for a post-doc position, any posts will be advertised via the Department website jobs page. These come up periodically as and when funding is available.
