The universities of Glasgow and Strathclyde have combined research expertise to lead CDT FUSE with the ambition to create a training and research powerhouse in ultrasonics.
Ultrasonics is the science and technology of sound at frequencies above the audible range and is vitally important across many sectors from robotics in the oil and gas industry to medical imaging.
For autumn 2021 entry, 10 studentships are available.
Join a cohort with 20+ academics and 30+ innovative micro-company and multinational organisations to work on doctoral projects that are aligned during the training phase.
Each cohort of researchers will benefit from:
Key areas for applied ultrasonics include:
The multiple needs of these sectors will be met by novel ultrasonics research in:
Funding is available to cover tuition fees for UK Home applicants and a stipend at the Research Council rate (£15,245 for Session 2020/21).
