Work with us

PhD studentships

  • We are accredited from STFC to support STFC supported PhD positions so we receive an allocation of funding for PhD students from them There is a list of potential PhD projects here.
  • From time to time, the department also has teaching associateships, which are funded by the university for five years but include teaching obligations. The funding of these positions does not depend on the nationality of the student.
  • We also have successfully applied for EPSRC studentships for appropriate mathematical topics. Candidates with mathematical interests may also be eligible to apply for a University studentship for research in Mathematics.
  • List of the available Phd projects in all ares of physics, mathematics and statistics .
