Almost all DPhil positions are awarded as part of a larger DPhil scheme, these positions are fully funded and last 3 to 4 years.

There are several schemes for which the lab regularly offers projects, including:

Other studentships and exchanges

Most Masters studentships in Oxford are part of four-year undergraduate courses, however studentships are sometimes available.

The lab is also open to hosting short-term summer studentships, exchange students and schemes like Erasmus.
