We invite applications for the study of PhD and MPhil degrees in Mathematics, Statistics and Physics at any time during the year. 

All PhD students receive a new desktop computer, a travel allowance of £1500, their own desk in the School and access to advanced training courses.

Applicants may suggest their own project or choose from the projects described in the links below.  If you choose a PhD project from the areas we've suggested, please provide the titles of your top three projects and list in order of preference. You should use the university's online application form to apply.
