Finding a supervisor

Before applying for one of our PhD programmes, you will need to find a potential supervisor.

We have nominated supervisors for funded projects which you can view from our available projects pages:

Current Social Sciences projects

Current Physical Sciences projects

If you have your own funding and would like to pursue a research project of your choice, you can find a potential supervisor from our list of academic staff or by visiting our research group webpages to see the academic staff in each group. Read our staff profiles, and get in touch with staff members whose interest areas fit with your research project.

Academic staff list - potential supervisors

If your research interest is interdisciplinary, you might find it helpful to contact more than one potential supervisor, with a view to working with multiple supervisors.
