Find out more about Imperial College London's Undergraduate Research Opportunities Programme (UROP). You can also reach out directly to us if you are interested in joining us as visiting students. 

As Masters students

It is possible to join our group once you are enrolled in one of our MSc courses or working on an MEng degree in the Department of Aeronautics! Please contact us for potential research topics.

As PhD/doctoral students

We currently have a fully funded EPSRC-iCASE PhD studentship on the "Design, Manufacturing and Characterisation of Sustainable Flexible Packaging Films" with Unilever. This PhD project will tackle the urgent need to produce truly sustainable recyclable and biodegradable flexible packaging such that our economy could be decoupled from fossil-derived resources. Note that this studentship is available only for students eligible for home fees (home fees may be demonstrated by being a UK national, having settled or pre-settled status, or indefinite leave to remain or enter). Interested applicants should get in touch with us by sending an up-to-date curriculum vitae, citing “PhD Studentship, ICL-Unilever” in the email title. 

There are also a number PhD studentships/scholarships available for home and international students. Feel free to contact us for further details

As post-doctoral research associates

There is currently no open funded research associate positions in the group but there are a number of competitive, externally funded Research Fellowships (e.g. RAEng, Newton Trust or ICRF etc.) that you could apply to join us. Feel free to discuss with us further.
