Opportunities in the Dove Group
We are always looking to work with highly motivated and talented scientists. Specific funded opportunities will be highlighted and linked from the website homepage, advertised and also linked on the group webpage below when they are available.
Details of how to join the Dove group
Opportunities that arise will be advertised through the group twitter account (@Dove_Group) and on the website front page as well as in prominent (inter)national advertisers such as ‘jobs.ac.uk‘ or ‘EURAXESS‘. When they are available, they can be found at the PostDoc Opportunities page
The group are very active in supporting strong applicants that wish to apply for fellowships (such as Marie Curie-Sklodowzka Action EF/GF, Newton International Fellowships, Whittaker Fellowships etc.). The Dove group have an excellent record of success in supporting these applications and potential applicants should contact Andrew Dove by email (firstname.lastname@example.org), enclosing a copy of their CV, to discuss such opportunities.
Applications are also welcomed from suitable candidates who wish to study for a Ph.D. within the group.
The group regularly has fully funded PhD places (for those eligible for home fees status) – when they are available, they can be found at the PhD Opportunities page. If you are interested in these opportunities, please complete the form at the bottom of the page. If this page does not indicate that we are actively seeking applicants (or is not available) then potential applicants should contact Andrew Dove by email (email@example.com) to discuss such opportunities in the first instance, including a CV.
Typically, we are currently looking at projects in the areas that include:
- Development of homogeneous catalysts for polymer synthesis (stereoselective) and depolymerisation
- Creation of sustainably sourced degradable polymers with useful mechanical properties
- Understanding the degradation of polymers under controlled conditions and in the environment
- Use of crystallisation driven self assembly to create advanced nanoparticle structures for medical, security and sustainability applications
- 3D printing and tuning hydrogel materials to develop tuneable scaffolds for regenerative medicine
For more details about these areas, and the other research that we do, see our Research Pages.
We regularly support students from around the world to study with us through scholarships (such as Chinese Scholarship Council (CSC) or other government-funded scholarships). The Dove group have an excellent record of success in supporting these applications. Please contact Andrew Dove by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss possible opportunities.
