Currently advertising

The WAMESS CDT is currently advertising for studentships in both tracks of the CDT (find out more about Track A and Track B).

Track A

Applications are open for Track A students. Track A is for students who wish to have their academic training programme to be concentrated in the first year of their 4 years in the CDT. Their research project is then completed over the remaining three years. This means that a student has longer in which to choose their research project. The broad initial training programme can help to inform a student’s choice of research project. Track A students will be based at the University of Strathclyde for all 4 years of the CDT.

Track B

Applications are open for Track B students in the following set research projects:

Track B students will be based at the University of Strathclyde for the first semester of the CDT. The remainder of the PhD will be carried out at the host university: Strathclyde, Edinburgh or Oxford.
