Centre for Doctoral Training in Plastic Electronics
Applications are invited for fully funded and self-funded four-year CDT studentships in Plastic Electronic Materials, at the EPSRC Plastic Electronics Centre for Doctoral Training (Imperial College London, Oxford University and Queen Mary University London). The Plastic Electronics CDT programme is a 1+3 year MRes+PhD cross-disciplinary, cross-institutional and industry-supported programme.
Funding is available for UK applicants, and EU candidates who meet the Research Council criterion of having been ‘ordinarily resident’ in the UK for the past three years. We also welcome applications from self-funding CDT and MRes (including international) applicants. Candidates should have at least a 2:1 (or equivalent) degree in Chemistry, Physics, Materials Science, Chemical Engineering or Electrical/Electronic Engineering (other degrees are also considered). You should be looking for a challenging, interdisciplinary research training environment and have an active interest in the development and applications of new functional materials.
Funded CDT projects available for 2018 entry:
Other projects are available for self-funding and MRes students.
The Centre for Doctoral Training approach aims to enhance postgraduate teaching and research through placing more emphasis on training, collaboration, networking and transferable skills than traditional postgraduate programmes. Students progress through the programme as a cohort, supporting and learning from each other. The PE-CDT programme encompasses cohort-building elements, including group learning, a Winter School, outreach activities, and social events.
Informal enquiries may be made to Ms Lisa Cheung ([email protected]).
