PhD Studentship in the EPSRC-funded Centre for Doctoral Training in Diamond Science and Technology

Deadline:1 October 2016 Opens:2 February 2016

This scholarship is to fund a PhD project in the Institute of Photonics. Further details can be found in the project section.

 

The Centre for Doctoral Training in Diamond Science and Technology:

The Diamond Science and Technology (DST) Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) is one of the newest CDTs funded by EPSRC and industry, and has diamond based research at the core of all activities. The DST involves a consortium of eight UK universities (Warwick, Aberystwyth, Bristol, Cardiff, Imperial, Newcastle, Oxford, and Strathclyde) and over thirty companies, keen to exploit the vast potential of diamond, along with many international partners. Diamond research projects will span a range of different themes including electronics, measurement and sensing, photonics, quantum, nuclear, water, manufacturing and new physical sciences for healthcare. There will be an intake of twelve students per year. Students are funded for four years and in Year 1 will undertake a purpose designed MSc in Diamond Science and Technology based at Warwick University, but taught by academics from partner universities and industry. As part of the MSc students will undertake two, ten week mini-projects at two different universities (or industrial partner(s)), which link to the theme of their chosen PhD. The PhD takes place in Years 2-4 at one of the eight universities.
