Join us!

We are always interested in hearing from enthusiastic and talented chemists interested in working with us.  ANU is consistently ranked as one of the world’s leading universities (currently ranked in the top 25 in the world, and the best in the Southern Hemisphere by the QS World University Rankings), and Canberra was recently ranked as the best city to live in in the world by the OECD, as well as one of Lonely Planet’s top cities to visit in 2018.

While all these types of rankings should be taken with a pinch of salt, we’re definitely based in a nice spot, at a great university. See the photos page for some idea of what Canberra is like.

The group is located in brand new labs in the Research School of Chemistry, and we have access to excellent facilities within the school. People working in the group will be exposed to a wide range of skills and techniques including organic synthesis, coordination chemistry, host-guest chemistry, NMR spectroscopy and X-ray crystallography.


Undergraduate research students
The group is keen to host undergraduate research students.  Please contact Nick for more information.

Summer scholarship students
If you are an undergraduate student from Australia or New Zealand, interested in working in the group as part of the ANU summer scholarship program (which includes full board, a weekly allowance and travel to Canberra), please apply here.

PhD students
If you have (or expect to get) either a 1st class BSc(Hons) or masters degree, there is a good chance you may be able to get a scholarship to study for a PhD in the group.  Please contact Nick for more information.
