Person Specification

PhD places in the school are awarded competitively, and have high entry requirements. Applications will be considered from students with, or expecting to gain, a first degree in any of a wide range of disciplines including physics, mathematics, engineering, geology, chemistry, geochemistry, biochemistry or similar disciplines at first or upper second class level.

We attempt to recruit the best candidates for any of our advertised projects (see the project list) based on qualifications, skills and aptitude for research, although we also have to take account of subject balance, supervisor workload, timeliness and fit to strategic objectives. In very rare cases it is possible for students to propose their own projects, but this must be in consultation with staff in the school and the project must be linked to the school’s overall research strategy.
