hi everyone i was wondering if anybody had any suggestions for particularly good places to do a phd in quantum gravity? in the uk or around europe in particular? most theoretical physics positions seem to be focused on high energy theory or strings. i am particularly interested in loop quantum gravity or similar approaches. renate loll in utrecht for example would be exactly the kind of person i'd be interested in doing a phd under however she does not seem to be inerested in applications at present. so if anybody has any suggestions that would be nice!
