Postgraduate Research

I am currently the postgraduate research (PGR) Director for the School of Physics & Astronomy. For PGR enquiries and questions, please contact me via pgrphys@leicester.ac.uk.

Finally, I continue to run our annual "Jobs Talk" for astronomy PhD students. The slides from talk, and other materials related to the post-doc job market, can be found here.
