Centre for Doctoral Training in Cyber Security

4-Year PhD (DPhil) Programme in Cyber Security

Good degree in the Physical, Mathematical, Business or Social Sciences? Interested in solving Cyber Space/Security challenges?

Up to 12 fully-funded studentships for Doctoral Research in Cyber Security

Candidates are invited to apply to the University of Oxford's 4-year Cyber Security PhD (DPhil) programme. This new and exciting programme provides a completely new perspective to solving the issues of cyber security by adopting an inter-disciplinary approach.

Cyber Security

As the technologies of cyberspace come to inhabit all parts of everyday life, Cyber Security has become everyone's problem. We face a growing collection of adversaries who are agile, opportunistic, and increasingly strategic, developing an ecosystem of suppliers involved in delivering elements of attack capability. They seek to defraud consumers, exploit their trust, or invade their privacy; to misappropriate corporate secrets and intellectual property; to disrupt the operation of the state or critical infrastructure.

Holding one of these studentships will allow you to study the problems and opportunities in Cyber Security from many different disciplinary perspectives, to understand the real-world challenges, and to make a contribution to solving some of the most significant problems society faces today.

The CDT:

  • has a multi-disciplinary approach, embracing both technical and social topics
  • uses cohort-based learning, so students from different backgrounds learn from each other
  • embraces both theory and practice

Applications will be considered from those with degrees at undergraduate (1st or 2:1) and master's level (Distinction) and from mature students with relevant interests and experience in a wide range of disciplines: Cyber Security raises research challenges which span computing and social sciences, as well as associated academic areas.

Funding is provided by EPSRC according to usual eligibility rules: Full studentships are available to UK candidates; and Partial studentships (fees only) are available for EU candidates. At present we are not able to offer these studentships to international candidates but we do welcome applications from self-funded students.
