Overview

We are always looking for enthusiastic, intelligent and motivated researchers who enjoy taking things apart and putting them back together again (with the excessive use of tape!) to join the TheLeeLab. Research in our group is highly multidisciplinary involving, physical chemistry, optical physics, synthetic chemistry, image analysis and bespoke coding.

If you are interested in joining the group, either as a Part III, Masters student, PhD student, or as a Postdoctoral researcher, please contact Steven F. Lee directly at sl591@cam.ac.uk. Applications should include:

  • a cover letter highlighting your research interests
  • a full CV
  • names and addresses of two referees

Funded PhD projects and postdoctoral positions will be advertised when available.
