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 Intelligent 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:
Applicants must have a good first degree (2:1 or better) in an appropriate Physical Science or Engineering.
Funding of stipend and fees is available for UK and EU candidates. Additional information for non-UK applicants is at: www.ed.ac.uk/studying/international
Deadlines for applications are as follows:
Applicants will normally be interviewed in small groups in the month following each deadline.
Please apply by submitting a CV with a covering letter as soon as possible to Prof Andy Harvey at [email protected] Your covering letter should highlight specific projects that are of most interest to you from the list here or you may prefer to describe general areas of research in the selection matrix here.
