Graphene NOWNANO Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) builds on the world-leading expertise in the science and technology of graphene and other two-dimensional (2D) materials at Manchester and Lancaster Universities to offer a broad interdisciplinary PhD programme. CDT students receive initial state-of-the-art training in fundamentals of graphene/2D materials, their applications, and key techniques. This is followed by a 3½ year research project you will select from up to 60 available projects in 30+ top-rated research groups across 9 disciplines/university departments (Experimental and Theoretical Physics, Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Computer Science, Materials Science, Electrical & Electronic Engineering, Pharmacy, Biomaterials, Nanotechnology for Medicine).
The CDT is based at the University of Manchester in partnership with Lancaster University and research projects are available at both partner institutions.
Graduates with a strong degree (first or high upper second) in science, engineering or bio-medical disciplines looking for a challenging research project in an interdisciplinary environment. Fully-funded places are available to UK nationals and a small number of studentships available to EU nationals. International students are welcome to apply provided they have their own funding.
Applications for September 2019 are now closed. The application process for entry in September 2020 will open in November 2019.
