EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Integrative Sensing and Measurement

Sensing and Measurement is perhaps the most fundamental scientific capability required and utilised by society

Sensing and Measurement is perhaps the most fundamental scientific capability required and utilised by society: it impacts on all areas of life from integrated atomic clocks for GPS location, through the myriad of chemical and physical sensors found in science, industry, environmental monitoring, consumer goods, biomedicine, food, energy and transport.

The new EPSRC CDT in Integrative Sensing and Measurement provides four-year PhD training tailored to develop the research leaders of tomorrow in this exciting and burgeoning field. Students will be immersed in a world-leading, multidisciplinary research community at Glasgow and Edinburgh Universities together with our industrial partners, united by the common language, concepts and applications of sensing and measurement. This includes, for example:

The new EPSRC CDT in Integrative Sensing and Measurement provides four-year PhD training
  • Nanofabrication and microfabrication
  • Chemical, biomedical sensing, lab-on-a-chip, lab-in-a-pill
  • Time and frequency measurement
  • Quantum sensing and radiation measurement
  • Electromagnetic sensing from radio-frequency, through THz and visible to ultraviolet
  • Optical sensing, spectroscopy and imaging
  • Microscale imaging
  • Magnetometry
  • Measurement of gravity and acceleration
  • National-standards measurement
Funding of stipend and fees is available for UK and EU candidates.
