PhD Opportunities

We currently have no funded PhD studentships available. However, students wishing to either apply for their own funding or can self-fund should send an email directly to Rianne, r.lord@uea.ac.uk to discuss help with applying.

PhD Positions

Information regarding research degrees and our university open days can be found on the universities webpage. We advertise both funded and self-funded PhD projects, and these are listed on the School of Chemistry.

To cover the costs of a self-funded PhD, students can apply for a UK Gov Postgraduate Doctoral Loan or through some research council opportunities:
