We welcome application from enthusiastic and well-qualified students and researchers who are interested in working on exciting projects in Soft Matter. Our research is interdisciplinary, so backgrounds from Maths, Physics, Engineering, Soft Matter, theory and experiments... all are welcome! In fact if you're a theoretician wanting to try out experiments, or an experimentalist wanting to learn some quantitative methods, I'd be particularly happy to hear from you. Please do send me an email to introduce yourself.
There are several excellent funding sources available for students and postdoctoral researchers, which I'd encourage prospective people to apply for. A non-exhaustive list is below. These often need a letter of support, so please contact me in good time and we can discuss an application.
