This PhD project is in a competition for an EPSRC studentship. Funding is for 3.5 years and will be available to successful candidates who meets the UK Research Council eligibility criteria. These requirements are detailed in the Research Council Training Grant Guide which can be found at View Website (see Annex 1 for Residential Guidelines for Research Council Studentships). In most cases UK and EU nationals who have been ordinarily resident in the UK for 3 years prior to the start of the course are eligible for a full-award. Other EU nationals may qualify for a fees only award.
