PhD applicants

*********************************

Sofia Gripenberg, Owen Lewis, Becky Morris* and Eleanor Slade are all able to supervise PhD students (in Oxford, the qualification is known as a ‘DPhil’). Our current students are funded through the Environmental Research Doctoral Training Partnership (previously NERC studentships), prestigious independent studentships (e.g. the Christopher Welch Scholarship) and, for overseas students, scholarships funded by their home countries (see the Department of Zoology website). Applications for the Environmental Research DTP are due in January (see here for details on how to apply). If you’re interested in studying for a DPhil please contact us well in advance of the university deadlines, preferably attaching a CV, research interests and your ideas about your preferred research topics.

*Since Becky Morris has moved she will now recruit PhD students through the University of Southampton – please contact her for details.
