The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training encourages applications from exceptional candidates with backgrounds in the natural sciences (e.g. biology, chemistry or physics), engineering disciplines (e.g. electrical engineering, mechanical engineering), computer science, and medicine.
Entry is competitive and we are looking for aspiration as well as intellectual aptitude. You should possess an innovative approach to problem solving, well developed technical skills, a willingness to work in a cross-disciplinary research setting, and an aspiration to become a world leader in the field of sensor innovation. It is important that you are open to learning new skills which might lie outside the field of your undergraduate degree.
You would normally have obtained a first, or upper second class, honours degree (or equivalent) in your undergraduate course.
