    PhD Positions: Deadline to Apply for Studentships: 1st Feb 2018

    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 Kobayashi or by post to the address below.


    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. Kobayashi. For full consideration, applications including reference letters should be submitted by the deadline, when the committee will begin reviewing applications. Applications received after the deadline 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. Currently we have no funds to support non-EU international students.
