CDT in Transformative Pharmaceutical Technologies

Learn more about the Centre for Doctoral Training in Transformative Pharmaceutical Technologies.

The CDT is a partnership between the University of Nottingham, University College London (UCL), and the SSPC, the Science Foundation Ireland Research Centre for Pharmaceuticals in Ireland. It builds on our highly successful previous CDTs in Targeted Therapeutics and Advanced Therapeutics & Nanomedicines.


The deadline for applications has now passed.  However we will continue to accept application until all places are filled.  Please continue to check here for further updates.

To apply you will need to complete an online application form, which includes statements on your motivations for applying to the CDT and how your previous skills and experience have prepared you for a PhD in this research area.
Our panel of academics will consider all applications and those successful at the application stage will be shortlisted for an interview. 

All communications, such as invites to interview and outcomes of your application, will be sent via email.  We aim to communicate decisions as soon as possible, but please bear in mind that we receive a high volume of applications and processing these can take some time.
