This page is for opportunities to do PhDs at Surrey, starting 2017. They cover all studentships available either wholly within the Soft Matter group or as part of collaborations between the another Department at Surrey and the Soft Matter group. The funding for the studentships is either (depending on the project) only for UK and EU nationals, or only for UK nationals, sorry.
Dr James Adams has the opportunity: Mechanically induced phase transitions in Liquid Crystal Elastomers (jointly supervised by Jon Bevan & James Adams). If you are interested, please contact Dr James Adams or Dr Jon Bevan.
The newest academic to join the Soft Matter group, Dr Izabela Jurewicz, as a new academic has very flexible funding for one PhD student.
