For DPhil (PhD degree) at Oxford
There are D.Phil projects available for interested candidates within the group research activities. Informal inquiries can be directed to Professor Ron Roy or Associate Professor James Kwan.
However, applications must be submitted through the university website.
Some opportunities for a funded D.Phil are listed below:
Students engaged in graduate research may propose to visit (for up to 1 year) to conduct research on a specific topic in the laboratory under the guidance of an academic. Students proposing to visit the laboratory should familiarize themselves with the regulations for obtaining the status of Recognized Student at Oxford.
Recognized students typically obtain funding from a fellowship or exchange scheme (some are listed below) to cover tuition fees. A research proposal should be developed by the student in conjunction with the host supervisor as well as their home-institute supervisior. There are several steps required to secure a place as a Recognised Student. Therefore, due to the requirements and approval process, it is advised that interested students begin planning well in advance and allow several terms lead-time (typically 6-12 months) prior to beginning their studies at Oxford.
