PhD Opportunities

We have a variety of possible PhD projects and areas in the group. If you think you might be interested, please do the following:

  • Decide whether you prefer theory, experiment, or simulation. They are all very different and, while you could in principle combine, for example, theory and simulation or simulation and experiment, people usually find that their skills and interests fall into one of these categories.
  • Browse our list of PhD projects and our research pages to get a feel for what we do. Note that the projects listed below are not an exhaustive list. If you have a specific idea that isn’t here, contact us, and we may have been thinking about it already!

  • Contact potential supervisors to find out what they do and whether your skills would be appropriate.
