Joining the group

PhD positions

Details of current PhD projects for which I hope to recruit students can be found on the departmental list of current PhD projects.

Funded PhD studentships for UK and EU students may be available through the department. For primary consideration, applications should be received by January to start the following September.

To make a PhD application, please use the application form available throught the St Andrews Postgraduate application system.

Undergraduate projects and summer internships

I supervise final year projects in theoretical physics for St Andrews undergradutes in theoretical physics and theoretical physics and mathematics. As well as the projects listed, I am happy to consider projects you may wish to suggest, but you should contact me early in such cases.

I am willing to support and supervise one or two undergraduate students to apply for funded summer internships. Details of potential sources of funding can be found on the department page on summer vacation placements. Note that deadlines for the Carnegie scholarship and the Laidlaw leadership scheme are likely to be in January. Please contact me at least one month before any deadline to discuss potential projects. I am not prepared to supervise unfunded or self-funded summer internships.
