Doctoral Degree Opportunities

If you are interested in pursuing a PhD in one of the above areas of research. Please

    • Step A - Self Check: I only consider students who have one or more of the following attributes:
      1) graduate from a top university; 2) strong publications at masters level; 3) awards for skills in certain areas
    • Step B - Email me directly with your interest and engage me in a conversation on:
      1) why you want to do a PhD with me; 2) what topics interest you; and 3) your ambitions in 5-10 years.
    • Step C - Funding Opportunities: I will engage you in a conversation on scholarship opportunities (see below).

    If all is agreed, you should officially apply in confidence after Step C. Doctoral degrees with me can be highly theoretical, or industrially applied.

    Post-Doctoral Fellowship Opportunities

    If you are interested in pursuing a PD fellowship with me, please contact me directly. There are many funding bodies in Warwick and nationally, and I would expect that you already have a strong idea on the funding body, as well as the main thesis of the fellowship. Don't come under-prepared.
