Undergraduate Students

If you are an undergraduate student at the University of Edinburgh and have a keen interest in synthetic organic chemistry and want to learn more outside of the normal lectures and tutorials then please contact Dr Andrew Lawrence and introduce yourself. The Lawrence Research Group run regular meetings in which we usually discuss highlights from the recent literature and PhD students present talks on specific areas of chemistry relevant to their research. Interested undergraduate students are welcome to attend these meetings and to get involved more generally. Any students interested in joining the group to undertake a research project should contact Dr Andrew Lawrence directly.

Funded postdoctoral vacancies will be advertised here as they arise. Excellent candidates are encouraged to apply for independent funding and Andrew can provide all necessary support.
