Applying to us

First round application deadline
3 January 2019

 

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.

Before applying, please read this important information about our ability to offer places on this course for October 2019.

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 projects 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 application deadline for the first round of applications is 3 January 2019. Shortlisted candidates will be interviewed from 14 January 2019. Further application rounds might be opened if we have spaces.

Important information

The University's ability to offer this course in 2019/20 depends on funding decisions scheduled to be made by the EPSRC in December 2018 for all CDTs seeking renewal, including the Sensor CDT. We will therefore not be able to confirm any offers of admission until at least December 2018. Applications will nevertheless be assessed in line with our normal application procedures, so you should not delay in submitting your application. If this course is not offered, then either your application fee will be refunded, as well as travel expenses to attend for interview, or (with your consent) your application may be transferred to another course.
