The Fielding research group is based in the Department of Materials at The University of Manchester. Our research primarily focuses on the design, synthesis and applications of polymers and polymer colloids for use in fields such as waterborne paints, biomedical diagnostics and regenerative medicine. This website aims to provide a background to who we are, a directory of our publications and highlight a range of our research activities.

We are always looking for new collaborators and to recruit talented PhD students and Post-doctoral researchers, where funding allows. Currently advertised project vacancies can be found on our University of Manchester research page and informal enquirers can be sent via email (contact details at foot of page). Prospective applicants who can self-fund or have a scholarship should also make initial contact by email.

May ’20 - 3 PhD's in a Pod

3 PhD's in a Pod is a fun, informative science podcast produced by Jack from our group and is being released throughout May/June 2020. In each podcast @PhDJack94 and co-host Josh invite a different PhD student or Post Doctoral Researcher to talk about their life. Their podcasts can be found on Spotify, Apple Music and Podbean, with links available in their twitter profile (here).
