 ...a hub of information and resources for postdoctoral researchers in the Oxford Chemistry Department

There is LOADS going on for postdocs and early career researchers, but it can be tricky to find! This site aims to collect all the useful information and keep it in one place. Please contact us if you think something is missing or you want to promote something of interest to postdocs in chemistry.

Travel grants

Travel funds have become available to Oxford Chemistry DPhil students and postdocs via a BBSRC Innovation fund for attendance at International Conferences. This is a competitive process and application forms are available here.
