From time to time post doctoral research opportunities will be available within the Materials Theory Group. These are advertised on the University of Cambridge's site (Dept. of Materials Science and Metallurgy subsection), and on the PsiK mailing list.


Potential research students are encouraged to apply to the CDT in Computational Method for Materials Modelling, or directly to the department (clearly indicating Prof. Chris Pickard as a potential supervisor).


We support applications from excellent early career researchers to personal research fellowships. These include schemes such as Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions, Leverhulme Trust Fellowships, Royal Society University Research Fellowships, and similar programmes. Please get in contact with Prof. Chris Pickard if you are interested in applying to these.
