Working with me

I will update the posts below with masters, PhD, Postdoc project positions as they become available. But if you have a great idea for a project and would like to work with me please do send me an email, it is always fun to discuss new project ideas and we can investigate funding options.


Overseas applicants:

Be aware that UK research council PhD studentships (e.g. through the NERC DTP, or STFC) are only able to fully fund UK applicants. Therefore if you are an overseas student it is important that you apply for funding early, either through your domestic funding agencies, or from international scholarship programmes like the Gates. The deadlines for these scholarships may be long before the internal Cambridge PhD deadline, so check them regularly. There is further information on making a PhD application as an overseas student on the Department of Earth Sciences web page and on the Institute of Astronomy page.

Research council funded PDRA positions are open to all applicants.

Post-doc positions

I am always keen to develop ideas and work on fellowship applications with people. I can also help put you in contact with the resources in Cambridge to develop these applications. Please contact me to discuss further.
