The Information Security Group welcomes applications from prospective PhD students wishing to propose their own research projects or who wish to develop a detailed project in conjunction with their supervisor. This is the "normal" mode of application for PhD students.
However, we also welcome applications from prospective students wishing to work on specific topics or projects of particular interest to members of the ISG faculty. Prospective applicants with interest in specific research areas should visit our research areas webpage and contact a member of ISG staff listed in the respective research area, before making a formal application to the College admissions office.
The ISG also hosts the Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Cyber Security for the Everyday, which is funded by the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). The CDT's main objective is to develop a cohort of highly trained researchers with a broad understanding of cyber security, and an appreciation of the increasingly important interplay between theoretical, technical and social foundations in this field. Sample research topics for the CDT can be found here.
