Joining The Hayward Group


Part II Students

The group generally accepts 4 Part II (Oxford final year) students per year. Part II projects tend to lie in the highlighted research areas. Research students are directly supervised by Prof. Hayward assisted by senior graduate students and post docs who have projects in related areas.

Prospective Part II students are welcome to come and talk about projects, email to arrange a meeting.


Graduate Students

We are always looking to recruit new graduate students to the group. Graduate (D.Phil) courses usually begin at the end of September and the graduate admissions system is geared to this schedule. All prospective D.Phil students should consult the Chemistry Department's Graduate Web Pages and contact Prof. Hayward as soon as possible to discuss research opportunities, possible sources of funding and to arrange (if possible) a visit to Oxford.
