How to apply

Your research

Your first task is to decide on a research area or areas that will motivate you to work hard, enjoyably and productively over a period of 3 years (for PhD). If that area is represented by a specific postgraduate project in one of our Research Institutes, you may wish to make informal contact by email with the academic responsible for that project initially, to find out more. Then, submit an application form.

If your application is not for a specified project, you should submit a research proposal indicating what areas of research interest you and what is the nature of the work you wish to undertake (experimental? theoretical? simulation?). Please do not simply send your CV. You should send your research proposal with a completed application form for our consideration.
