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