I am happy to take on very good, motivated students for PhD projects. I
have not listed a set of projects this year, because I have a large
number of existing students.
If you wish to study for a PhD under my supervision, please go through the formal admissions procedure. See http://www.soton.ac.uk/postgraduate/pgstudy/pgadmissionsprocess.html
You may list me as a potential supervisor.
Please do not send me your CV (resumé) - I am unable to make an offer until your qualifications have been assessed.
Please also note that we have a very limited number of studentships
available. We do not have teaching assistant positions available and
PhD students are normally expected to provide their own fees and living
Please wait until the project allocation is completed later this spring.
We have formal agreements with a number of other European universities.
I will discuss 6-9 month projects on an individual basis.
I get a lot of requests for summer internships. Unless you are a UK
student in your 2nd or 3rd years and planning to study for a PhD,
please do not email me, asking for a place.
I am unable to offer places for the following reasons:
Cost: I do not have funds to
support students with travel or accommodation. Additionally, visiting
students would normally have to pay fees to cover supervision time,
computer equipment and desk space. This means that you would have to
find several thousand pounds of your own money.
Time: We have a cohort of over
150 MSc students. In the UK system, students do a project over the
summer months. Therefore, I expect to be supervising 4 or 5 students
this summer. Additionally, I have a number of PhD students who will
also be supervised over the summer.
Quality: We need to have formal
agreements with partner institutions if we are to exchange marks. This
is very time consuming to develop for individual students.
