How to join our Group


We're always interested in hearing from motivated candidates with a background in synthetic organic chemistry, polymer chemistry, biochemistry or related fields. All our projects are multi-disciplinary, offering excellent opportunites to work with National/International collaborators.

Specific projects will be listed here when they are available. Speculative enquires are welcome. Email MIG directly if you have any questions: m dot i dot gibson at warwick dot ac dot uk.


Post-Doctoral Vacancies

Excellent candidates with a background in biomaterials, polymer science, protein expression or carbohydrate chemistry should express their interest to Prof M. Gibson. We will advertise when any positions are available. If you have already secured your own funding (e.g. goverment sources, charities, research councils) or you would like to apply for your own funding (e.g. Marie Curie, EPSRC post-doctoral fellowships, Wellcome Trust Fellowships) email Matt directly. Please enclose a CV including a full publication list (including those in preparation or submitted).


Marie-Curie Fellowships Call is now Open.

We are very interested to hear from talented, ambitious, early career researchers who want to join our lab to work on ambitious projects at the interface between materials and medical sciences. The full call is here;

https://ec.europa.eu/research/participants/portal/desktop/en/opportunities/h2020/topics/msca-if-2017.html

Note the deadline is 14th September so get in touch soon if you are interested. We can offer projects ranging form polymer and carbohydrate synthesis to new biosensors, cell storage and non-traditional antibiotics. If interested, please send short (2 page MAX CV) and a cover letter/email.

Technical vacancies

None at moment

Ph.D Vacancies PLACES OPEN FOR 2017 START

We will have multiple vacancies for 2018 start. If you have your own funding, and wish to work with us, please send a 2 page CV (MAX) including grades and research experience.


Masters Projects

Vacancies for MAS/Systems Biology/AS:MIT/Polymer/Chemistry MSc Projects 2016

Candidates from Chemistry MSc, AS:MIT or Polymer MSc should apply directly from their respective project lists (but can email if further information is required). MAS CDT students should contact Matt early in Term 2 to allow time to prepare project proposals. We aim to have at least 2 vacancies each year.


Summer Placements


Vacancies for Summer 2016. Excellent students (must have at least a 2:1, preferably 1st) should contact Dr Gibson explaining motivation and to discuss potential projects as soon as possible.

Each year we hope to have at least 1/2 vacancies for Warwick students (in either year 2 or year 3) to come and work in the labs for 8-10 weeks during summer. This a great opportunity to improve your CV and to get paid at the same time. There is funding available via the Undergraduate Research Scholarship Scheme yearly, applications closing end of January.
