Applicants should contact the supervisors (Dr. G.A. Pavliotis,
g.pavliotis@imperial.ac.uk  and Dr C.J. Cotter,
colin.cotter@imperial.ac.uk) directly in order to discuss the potential
projects and submit a CV, covering letter and the names of two academic
referees. Supervisors will advise students of any further/alternative
departmental requirements. The latest date for applications to
supervisors is *1 February 2013. * Interviews are expected to be held in
mid February.
