Leeper Group



Ph.D. Students

The group is no longer accepting applications from prospective Ph.D. students. However applications to start as an M.Phil. student in October 2020 or 2021 will be considered.

To apply for admission as a Ph.D. or M.Phil. student you need to complete the University's Graduate Scholarship and Admission Form (GradSAF). To apply for funding make sure that you tick the relevant funding box in the GradSAF Section B. The deadlines for applying for funding are: for U.S. students applying for a Gates Scholarship early October; for other students early December.

Post-doctoral Researchers

Currently there is no funding available to pay the salary of postdoctoral applicants. Enquiries from researchers who are willing to apply for their own funding (e.g. from an E.U. Marie Curie Fellowship) would be welcome.

Summer Students and Short Projects

All applicants need to have their own funding or be willing to apply for it. We are normally willing to accept one or two project students on ERASMUS or similar schemes.
