CDTACM Studentships Available

6 February 2019

Imperial College London and University College London - Centre for Doctoral Training in Advanced characterisation for Materials (CDTACM) has a number of four-year fully-funded studentships available.

CDT ACM Studentship

The CDT ACM PhD programme offers training in the application of state-of-the-art characterisation techniques to materials challenges in key thematic areas of societal importance such as Energy, Information Technology, Nanomaterials, Healthcare, Security, Environment and Transport. Each project will involve experts at both University College London and Imperial College London and you will spend time at both sites during your project. You will also have a three-month placement at a leading international university, research institute or industrial partner. Specially designed training modules in characterisation will be interwoven with your PhD research project, and you will receive professional development training delivered by our award-winning Graduate Schools. The world-leading research that you will be involved with will be closely linked with real-world applications, as the projects will be aligned with the priorities of our network of industrial partners. On graduation you will be ideally qualified to follow a career path either in academia or industry. Our training philosophy is that our graduates will provide the innovation and creativity required to lead the world in the development, characterisation and manufacture of new materials, making a significant contribution to the quality of life of future generations.

This CDT seeks candidates for October 2019 entry. You will hold, or be expected to achieve, a Master's degree in addition to a Bachelor's degree (or equivalent) at 2:1 level (or above) in a relevant subject (e.g. Materials, Physics, Chemistry, Earth Sciences, Mechanical, Civil, Electrical or Chemical Engineering). Research projects on offer are diverse and successful applicants will choose a project after the initial three months of the programme, following discussions with project supervisors. Students will take taught courses at both universities during this three month period. Projects will be available in the following areas: Energy Materials, Biomaterials and Regenerative Medicine, Engineering Materials, Electronic and Magnetic Materials.
