PhD Positions: Deadlines to Apply for Studentships: 1st Feb 2016 and 29th Feb 2016
The Institute offers higher degree programmes at PhD level. The majority of students will follow a three-year full-time route leading to the award of PhD. Studentships are generally funded by either the Science and Technology Facilities Council, or internally from our own research funds. We currently take in several new students every year. We highly encourage potential students to contact staff in their fields of interest for available PhD projects. A partial list of PhD projects is here. Please click here for more details on our PhD study programme. Informal enquiries may be made to Professor Salaris or by post to the address below. There are two kinds of studentships available for applicants this year, funded by two different funds. One is only for UK students (deadline: 1st Feb 2016), the other is open for UK/EU students (deadline: 29th Feb 2016). Applications received by 1st Feb 2016 will be automatically considered for all studentships. Currently we do not have funds to support non-EU international students.
Application procedure: Applications can be made by filling in the <online application form> where an official transcript should be uploaded. Applicants must also arrange for two letters of reference to be emailed to Prof Salaris. For full consideration, applications including reference letters should be submitted by the deadlines, when the committee will begin reviewing applications. Applications received after the deadlines may be considered at the discretion of the committee until the positions are filled. Successful applicants need to have gained a first class or upper second honours degree in an appropriate subject, e.g. physics, astronomy, mathematics.
