Doctoral Training Schemes

UK and EU students are welcome to apply for the following doctoral training schemes

The Scottish Doctoral Training Centre in Condensed Matter Physics (CM-DTC)

The CM-DTC is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). It is a tri-institutional collaboration between the Universities of St Andrews, Edinburgh and Heriot-Watt, providing international-level doctoral training in the core discipline of condensed matter physics. The 48 month studentship includes tuition fee payment, stipend at the standard EPSRC rate, and generous allowances for equipment, conference and workshop attendance.  Please see the website below for further information and application procedure.

Soft Matter and Functional Interfaces Centre for Doctoral Training (SOFI CDT)

The SOFI CDT is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). It is a tri-institutional collaboration between the Universities of Durham, Edinburgh and Leeds, with the core aim of training the next generation of industrial SOFI science and enterprise leaders through a rich programme of industrially integrated postgraduate training. All students joining the CDT will initially be registered at Durham University where they will stay for the first six months. After the first six months of cohort training and exposure to the entire CDT network, students will decide their PhD project and will then be registered for a PhD at the appropriate university. The 48 month studentship includes tuition fee payment, stipend at the standard EPSRC rate, and generous allowances for equipment, conference and workshop attendance.  Please see the website below for further information and application procedure.
