This PhD project is in a Faculty of Science competition for funded studentships. These studentships are funded for 3 years and comprise UK/EU fees, an annual stipend of £15,009 and £1,000 per annum to support research training. Overseas applicants may apply but they are required to fund the difference between home/EU and overseas tuition fees (which are detailed on the University’s fees pages at View Website . Please note tuition fees are subject to an annual increase).
