PhD topics and potential projects now available to view

PhD

We now have a new page dedicated to PhD opportunities with RGCL, which outlines both areas of expertise within the Group and suggested topics for study. This is intended to give an idea of the range of topics that our staff can supervise, but it is by no means restrictive – we are always interested in receiving proposals from applicants who have formulated their own research projects. If you are considering making an application, please contact a relevant member of staff first with details of your proposed research topic. You are also welcome to contact us with any general questions about PhD research or the application process.
