The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Graphene Technology, based in the Cambridge Graphene Centre (www.graphene.cam.ac.uk) at the University of Cambridge invites applications for full-time 4-year PhD studentships starting in October 2019. The Centre's research and training activities focus on Cambridge's internationally recognised strength in graphene, carbon allotropes, layered crystals and hybrid nanomaterials. The centre has a strong collaboration with industrial and academic partners across various disciplines (Engineering, Nanotechnology, Chemistry, Physics, Materials Science, Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology) which will help shape and develop the Centre's vision and mission activities.

The structure of the programme is a one-year MRes course followed by a 3-year PhD study. The first year will form the scientific and technical expertise of the students in science and technology of graphene and related materials, ranging from basic physics, chemistry and nanotechnology to applications in the areas of electronics, photonics, communications, energy, bio-medicine and composites. This will be done by a combination of taught modules, workshops and short projects. Coupled with these, business and entrepreneurship skills, public outreach and tailored professional development significantly extend the training. The students will have a clear view of various research areas and be equipped with the necessary skills and experimental techniques in Graphene Technology before selecting their PhDs at the end of the year, enabling them to use their next 3 years efficiently, rapidly achieving high impact research and independence.

Full EPSRC funding is available for UK students and European students who have studied in the UK for 3 years. Students are normally expected to have a 2.1 or 1st class honours degree from a UK University or an equivalent standard from an overseas university. Eligible UK and EU students with these or equivalent qualifications are encouraged to apply. A limited number of EU funded studentships are available for those who have not studied in the UK for 3 years. Non-EU applicants are not eligible to apply for funding from the Graphene Technology CDT, but can still join the programme if recipient of external scholarships (such as CSC or commonwealth scholarships) covering the full costs.

Applications should be made online www.doctoral.graphene.cam.ac.uk/how-to-apply.

Enquires can be made to doctoral@graphene.cam.ac.uk

The University of Cambridge is committed to equality of opportunity, supports and encourages applications from under-represented groups and values diversity.
