Postgraduate research

We have a thriving postgraduate research community and always welcome applicants interested in undertaking postgraduate research.

We offer expert supervision in a wide range of research areas. To find out about current staff research interests and identify potential supervisors, please browse the research profiles of our academic staff.

Our postgraduate research programmes

We offer PhD and MPhil awards in History of Science, Technology and Medicine. The MPhil can be regarded as a preparatory course for the PhD, or as a free-standing research qualification.

For more information, please visit the PhD/MPhil in History of Science, Technology or Medicine Programme page.

Any questions? Please contact our postgraduate research coordinator, Professor Pratik Chakrabarti.

Our students

Our research students cover a wide range of ages and backgrounds and play an important role in the intellectual and social life of the Centre for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine.

They are encouraged to attend our seminars and less formal activities, and several of our recent conferences have been organised, or co-organised, by research students.

Most of our research students work mainly in the Centre itself, while others attend regular meetings but are based primarily outside Manchester.
