EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Sensor Technologies for a Healthy and Sustainable Future (Sensor CDT)

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Sensor Technologies for a Healthy and Sustainable Future (Sensor CDT), at the University of Cambridge, is looking for aspirational, enthusiastic and open-minded students to join its vibrant environment.

We are recruiting talented students with a demonstrable interest to conduct interdisciplinary sensor science. The Sensor CDT bridges world leading expertise and infrastructure in sensor research across the engineering, computing, physical, and biomedical sciences.

Successful applicants will join a 4-year programme consisting of a 1-year MRes followed by a 3-year PhD.

We provide our students with the “common language” and skills necessary to become future industrial or academic leaders in cutting-edge sensor development, intelligent data interpretation and ground-breaking sensor applications.

Throughout the programme, our students participate in workshops to nurture their research and entrepreneurial skills as well as to develop their understanding of responsible innovation. Leading academic and industrial experts provide coaching and mentoring as well as critical technical and scientific guidance.

The programme is developed along three directions:

  • Sensors for a healthy society: We will provide research training on new sensor technologies e.g. for assisted living of an aging population and of patients with chronic diseases, for point of care diagnostics, and for companion diagnostics for advanced medical treatment.
  • Sensors for a sustainable environment, society and economy: This theme centres on the use of sensors e.g. to drive resource and energy efficiency in industrial and agricultural processes, to monitor human impact on the environment, and to use sensors for enabling the sustainable use of infrastructure assets.
  • Sensors with open technologies: We have pioneered the use of open technologies as an alternative to proprietary technologies for advanced sensor systems design in our current CDT.

Both training and research activities in the Sensor CDT are strongly supported by world leading industrial partners.

How to apply

We are inviting applications from graduates with a 1st or upper 2nd class honours degree (or equivalent) in physical sciences, life sciences, medicine, engineering, or computer science. We are looking for students with an innovative approach to problem solving, well-developed technical skills, and the aptitude and aspiration to become future world leaders in the field of sensor technologies for a healthy and sustainable future.

To apply please visit our website cdt.sensors.cam.ac.uk/how-to-apply.

Funding Notes

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Sensor Technologies and Applications offers around 10 fully funded studentships per year for eligible UK and EU students with a strong interest in interdisciplinary sensor research. We encourage candidates from overseas to apply but funding would have to come from other sources e.g. from your own country or from other funding opportunities at Cambridge.

Deadline: refer to our website for further information.

The University values diversity and is committed to equality of opportunity.
