Are you passionate about enantioselective catalysis, organic synthesis and non-covalent interactions, and wondering if you can join the group to carry out research with us? Or maybe your expertise is complementary to ours, and are interested in collaborating?

If the answer to any of those questions is yes, then Allegra is waiting for you to make contact via email. 

I offer a fully funded position for an MRes student, with an October 2024 start: please get in touch if interested!

Drop me a line if you are interested in carrying out undergraduate research projects, research visits and summer placements in my lab. Please also include your CV to apply for PhD and postdoctoral stays. Outstanding candidates are encouraged to seek out postdoctoral fellowship opportunities, such as those listed here (MSCA, Newton, IAS fellowships), and will receive full support in crafting a competitive application for external funding.
