Postgraduate Research (PhD)
Our research cuts across the traditional disciplinary boundaries, and we invite applications for research leading to the PhD degree from scientists and engineers in all appropriate subjects who have an interest in any of our research areas.
The main application sectors addressed by our research are energy conversion; environmental protection; transport; electronics/optoelectronics; and healthcare.
Across all themes, the research is carried out with strong support from and involvement of industrial organisations. This close collaboration with industry, alongside our first-class facilities, continues to ensure that the Department is at the forefront of Materials Science and Engineering research.

EPSRC Centres for Doctoral Training
What is a CDT?
EPSRC Centres for Doctoral Training are cross-departmental, cross-faculty or cross-UK institution research centres sponsored by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).
Each CDT offers four-year fully-funded PhD studentships in Materials, sponsored by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).
While working on an exciting research project you will benefit from specific modules in your research subject, opportunities for professional development and cohort-building activities.
