This PhD studentship is funded by the Faculty of Science for 4 years. Funding is available to EU applicants and comprises home/EU tuition fees and an annual stipend of £14,777. Overseas applicants may apply but they will be required to fund the difference between home/EU and overseas fees (in 2017/18 the difference is £13,805 but fees are subject to an annual increase).
