EPSRC CDT in Science and Applications of Graphene and Related Nanomaterials

EPSRC CDT in Science and Applications of Graphene and Related Nanomaterials (Graphene NOWNANO)

12+ 4-year PhD Studentships

Graphene NOWNANO Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) builds on the world-leading expertise in the science and technology of graphene and other two-dimensional (2D) materials at Manchester and Lancaster Universities to offer a broad interdisciplinary PhD programme. CDT students receive initial state-of-the-art training in fundamentals of graphene/2D materials, their applications, and key techniques. This is followed by a 3½ year research project you will select from up to 60 available projects in 30+ top-rated research groups across 9 disciplines/university departments (Experimental and Theoretical Physics, Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Computer Science, Materials Science, Electrical & Electronic Engineering, Pharmacy, Biomaterials, Nanotechnology for Medicine).

We offer:

  • World-class research in graphene and other 2D materials, their science and applications, including :
    • Experimental and theoretical physics of nanodevices based on 2D materials;
    • 2D heterostructures: materials on demand;
    • Synthesis, fabrication, characterisation and modelling of 2D materials;
    • Applications of graphene and other 2D materials in electronics, photonics, spintronics, electrochemistry, composites, filtration and separation, drug delivery, regenerative medicine, and other new and developing areas.
  • Vibrant interdisciplinary environment
  • Network of fellow scientists (over 60 students)
  • 6-month training in fundamentals of 2D materials and research techniques to prepare for challenging research projects
  • Training in innovation and commercialization of research
  • Network of industrial partners
  • Fully funded secondments in industry or partner research institutions
  • Public engagement activities led by the students

The CDT is based at the University of Manchester in partnership with Lancaster University and research projects are available at both partner institutions.
