This is an open call to all students interested in joining the Ioannou group for their PhD. For UK students (or EU students that have been in the UK for at least 3 years), there is competitive funding we apply for from various sources here, but note that our successful applicants have some of the following: first class bachelors degrees, distinction in their masters, relevant experience, first-author published paper (or in press) and prizes for academic achievement. For non-UK students, please only get in touch if you know of PhD funding opportunities that you are eligible and competitive for.
