All of the Department's Academic Staff is active researchers, who are warmly welcome applications for suitably qualified candidates.

Doctoral students are supervised by a three-member committee (the principal supervisor and two faculty members) with direct expertise in their area of research. Following the international standards, the committee guides the PhD candidate to work on an innovating topic. The Department uses a number of regular monitoring and assessment processes to keep track of progression and pick up on any emerging training issues, i.e., presenting an annual report on the progress.
