PhD and Postdoctoral Research Opportunities

CRoLAC supports PhD and postdoctoral researchers wishing to join Queen Mary. Various funding schemes are available, including for non-British nationals.

Before making an application for a PhD or a postdoc, you will need to identify and contact an appropriate supervisor/mentor. CRoLAC members sit in different schools across the faculty and have a wide variety of expertise related to the region. On the ‘Who we are’ page is a list of our members with links to their profiles and research interests. You can use this to help you identify an appropriate supervisor/mentor. Supervision teams can combine expertise from two schools.
