Fully funded studentships available

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Sensor Technologies and Applications offers around 10 fully funded studentships per year for eligible UK and EU students with a strong interest in interdisciplinary sensor research. We are happy for candidates from overseas to apply but the Sensor CDT cannot provide any funding, so you would need to find your own support, e.g. from your own country or from other funding opportunities at Cambridge.

Wide range of tailored sensor related PhD projects

Our PhD projects cover a cross-section of interdisciplinary sensor related topics, ranging from pure science and technology to the application of existing sensors in new imaginative ways. We provide a list of carefully chosen PhD projects for our students to select from. In addition, students may, in collaboration with their supervisors, develop their own project and tailor it to their specific interests.

Diverse academic and cultural background

We welcome applications from physicists, biologists, chemists, engineers, material scientists, pharmacists, medics, computer scientists and many other related subjects. Our applicants come from the UK, Europe, Asia, Africa, the Americas and Australia.

Deadlines

The deadline for applications is 7 January 2020.
