Metrology and sensor networks

NPL

NPL maintains a wide portfolio of internationally visible research programmes that advances measurement science, underpins the SI system and supports various cross-disciplinary technologies in natural sciences, engineering, materials science and computer science.

The fundamental questions of sensor standards, calibration and traceability underpin any research and development in sensing.

In collaboration with NPL, the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Sensor Technologies and Applications is inviting applications for a fully funded 4-year PhD studentship commencing in October 2015 to work on a project in the above areas.

The student will have the opportunity to develop an interdisciplinary and academically challenging project together with researchers from NPL and Sensor CDT supervisors.
