The Swire Institute of Marine Science offers three major sources of funding to support researchers wanting to visit SWIMS to undertake research. For enquiries, please contact the Director, Gray A Williams.
Higher Degrees (M.Phil / Ph.D)
Students who are interested in undertaking a research postgraduate degree (M.Phil or Ph.D) in marine biology and ecology should directly contact SWIMS academic staff for more information regarding individual projects.
Student Research Assistantships/Internships
Undergraduate students holding a permanent Hong Kong identity card are encouraged to apply to work as volunteer student research assistants during the semester breaks/summer holidays. Undergraduate students from both local and overseas institutions who are enrolled in a degree programme, which requires the completion of an internship, may also contact us to discuss how we can facilitate that requirement. Interested students should contact SWIMS Secretary, Ms Sylvia Yiu.
