The Centre for Doctoral Training in Advanced Metallic Systems (AMSCDT) is a joint venture between Dublin City University, University College Dublin, University of Sheffield, and University of Manchester. AMS CDT aims to develop the next generation of metallurgy professionals who can create, shape, and deliver the national vision for UK and RoI metals manufacturing. We will equip you with a versatile and cross-disciplinary skill set to meet the most complex emerging challenges and contribute effectively to a sustainable world-leading metals sector.
Our training programme includes an initial 6-month conversion for graduates from STEM disciplines into materials and metallurgy, followed by a 3.5 year doctoral project combined with a professional skills training programme in years 2, 3 and 4.
The CDT’s research and training activities capitalise on four internationally recognised R&D Universities – The University of Sheffield, The University of Manchester, Dublin City University and University College Dublin. Our facilities include the world-class Henry Royce Institute and Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre in the UK, and the and I-Form Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre in Dublin.
Applicants should have (or expect to obtain by the start date) at least a good 2.1 degree in a Bachelors or Masters in an engineering, science or maths discipline and an IELTS qualification above 7.0.
AMSCDT actively supports equality, diversity and inclusion and encourages applications from all sections of society.
This PHD project will be hosted in Dublin City University and start in September 2022.
