The application process has two steps:
•First, you should contact relevant members of the department to discuss potential topics and projects, starting dates, funding, etc. To identify a prospective supervisor, please browse our academic staff page, or look under staff research interests. Academic staff that have open positions typically advertise them on the school webpage, their personal webpage and/or social media, so it is good to keep track of those opportunities. If you do contact academic members of staff directly, please specify your research interests and attach evidence of your high academic standard (e.g., CV + short cover letter detailing relevant grades, research experience, research outputs, awards, other relevant experience).
•Next, if these initial discussions are successful, you should complete the formal application form. As described in this form, to support your application you must submit a Statement of Research Interests, university transcripts, your IELTS/TOEFL results (if applicable), and reports from two referees.
