If you find a project that interests you, please contact the associated lead academic directly. This person might also be the potential supervisor. Discussing with them the potential project idea before you apply is vital to maximising the strength of your application. We will not be able to consider applications for funding where a potential supervisor has not been named.
The project descriptions below are simply starting points for discussion and intended to help you find a good supervisory match. Any conversations you have with a potential supervisor may lead to developing a more concrete project. They will want to hear your ideas too.
