PhD Studentships in the School of Science

Loughborough University

Closes: 29th February 2024

Applications are invited for a number of funded studentships in the School of Science for a 1st October 2024 start date. 

Overview: 

The School of Science brings together the Departments of Chemistry, Computer Science, Mathematical Sciences, Mathematics Education and Physics. Our research ranges from the purely theoretical to the very applied and impactful, and is driven by both curiosity and society’s need for solutions to real-life issues. In the most recent Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) each of the academic departments had at least 85% of their research ranked as ‘internationally recognised’. Our students benefit from an active research community, state-of- the-art facilities and training and research funds. The PhD student will be supported through monthly research meetings and trained on technical, industry relevant skills. There will be opportunities to present at national and international scientific events.

The School is very involved in and committed to diversity and inclusion for all, regardless of gender or gender identity, race or ethnicity, disability, sexual preference, age or other characteristics. There are a variety of events and initiatives each year to support and celebrate diversity, including Women in Science Lectures, Black Excellence in Science events, a Pride in Research workshop and Pint of LGBT+ Science activities. All students are welcome and encouraged to contribute to our diversity and inclusivity plans and activities, and there are funds available to support childcare during travel to conferences for students with childcare responsibilities as well as funds to support students to attend national events aimed at diversity in STEM.

Extensive investment in the student learning environment and research facilities as well as a supportive and welcome environment for all makes Loughborough an excellent place for any motivated student to pursue academic aspirations, research interests and career goals. 

As members of the Doctoral College, all postgraduate research students benefit from the full programme of Doctoral College events, such as the Annual Research Conference, the Summer Showcase, Three Minute Thesis competitions and regular Café Academique seminar series. Our full programme of activities is designed to enhance research culture, networking skills and promote multi-disciplinary thinking and creativity.

In addition, the Doctoral College offers an extensive training and development programme, mapped to the Vitae Researcher Development Framework. Training sessions include face-to face workshops, online and blended learning. To complement structured learning, students are also encouraged to undertake researcher-led initiatives, peer to peer support, and to apply for funding for skills and CV enhancement. You will have the opportunity to undertake training in teaching skills and use these skills to teach undergraduate students. You will also have access to a dedicated postgraduate research careers consultant, to help you succeed in your research and future career.
