PhD projects in my group are largely funded through the IAPETUS Doctoral Training Programme and are also advertised on the PhD page of our department website. Projects are typically posted in November with a February deadline. I'm also happy to help motivated candidates pursue other funding sources, such as the CSC, or discuss specific project ideas.
