Join, consult or collaborate with us

Work with us

We collaborate widely, both across faculties within the University and with other Universities and research centres around the world. If you are looking for ways to collaborate with us (e.g. sabbatical stays, joint grants) please contact any of our staff, or the Head of Group to direct you.


PhD studentships are regularly on offer through our Centre for Doctoral Training.

MSc summer projects are supervised by individual members of staff.

Undergraduate students - we regularly have undergraduate summer internships. If you would like to inquire about these, please contact any of the academic staff that you would like to work with.


The group has a wide range of consultancy experience, across numerous domains. Not all our consultancy is on a remunerated basis; we value interactions with non-academic partners, so please feel free to discuss ways we could work together.
