‌‌‌‌‌‌‌‌We have a number of fully-funded 4-year PhD studentships available to start in October 2018. These studentships are in collaboration with industry partners of the CDT and will be of particular interest to applicants from the EU who do not meet the EPSRC residency requirements for full funding as these studentships would be fully-funded for such applicants. Successful candidates will have an aptitude for theory and simulation and already have, or expect to achieve, a first class (or equivalent) Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in the physical sciences or a branch of engineering. Applicants should apply via the usual route, making it clear in their personal statement which project they are interested in. For further information on these projects please see the contact details in the project description.
