PhD Studentships in Engineering

The James Watt School of Engineering, University of Glasgow, is dedicated to supporting greater diversity in engineering. To enable this mission, the Mary Gibb Dunlop Scholarships have been established to support exceptional female academics (and those identifying as female) to undertake postgraduate research within the James Watt School of Engineering. Applications for full or part-time doctoral research within the school are welcomed. The scholarships, available for October 2022, provide 3.5 years stipend at UKRI rates and tuition fees for UK and international students.

The University of Glasgow is home to an internationally leading research portfolio, an enviable graduate training programme and a long-standing reputation for excellence, making it an incredibly vibrant environment for researchers. It has world class and unique facilities, internationally established research leaders, a strong Postgraduate Research population and a culture of innovation and enterprise.

The James Watt School of Engineering (JWSE) at the University of Glasgow is an energetic and growing international centre of excellence for Engineering research. The School leads research in five Divisions: Autonomous Systems and Connectivity; Biomedical Engineering; Electronics and Nanoscale Engineering; Infrastructure and Environment; and Systems, Power and Energy. We have 140 academics and 168 post-doctoral researchers supported by 61 technicians and 27 professional services staff. Currently we have 450 research students working towards doctorates.

The James Watt School of Engineering has an integrated research structure of sufficient scale to enable major engineering challenges to be tackled effectively. Our research brings together fundamentals, technologies and applications, and with our research we are tackling global challenges of the 21st Century.

We welcome PhD applications from female future world changers who wish to pursue their research as part of a diverse, multi-disciplinary community of researchers. In return we offer students world-class facilities, a stimulating working environment, and robust student support and supervision structure.
