EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Urban Science and Progress

Urban Science is an emerging discipline which can assist governments, industry and citizens

Up to 10 Home/EU PhD studentships available for 2017 entry

“For the first time in history, more than half of the World’s population lives in urban areas; in just a few decades the World’s population will exceed 9 billion, 70% of whom will live in cities. Enabling those cities to deliver services effectively, efficiently and sustainably, while keeping their citizens safe, healthy, prosperous and well-informed, will be among the most important undertakings of this century.” - [UN-HABITAT]

multiple fully-funded PhD studentships to start in

Addressing the challenges of an increasingly urban world will be one of the most important undertakings of this century. Our centre for doctoral training in urban science employs city, industry and academic professionals to provide sector-leading training and research supervision. The centre also provides an international student experience through its partnership with CUSP urban science laboratory in New York.

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Urban Science and Progress has multiple fully-funded PhD studentships for October 2017. The centre is multidisciplinary, inviting students with strong backgrounds in computer science, informatics, engineering, geography, mathematics, environmental science, socio-technical studies or other relevant discipline areas, to apply. The CDT offers a 1+3 (MSc+PhD) training model that is high-quality and rigorous, to produce multiple cohorts of successful, highly-employable graduates. The first year provides Masters-level training in one of three streams (Information Engineering, Data Analytics, Urban Informatics and Analytics). In years 2-4, students carry out PhD research guided by supervisors from within the Centre. City and industry partners will provide additional mentoring and guidance.
