These studentships are funded by one of our Centres for Doctoral Training. These opportunities are student-driven and applications are completed through the relevant CDT. Please note that applicants must meet the RCUK residency requirements.
Centres for Doctoral Training
Criticat: Critical Resource Catalysis Studentships
The CRITICAT CDT, hosted by St Andrews, Heriot-Watt and Edinburgh Universities in Chemistry/Chemical Engineering, will provide PhD training across homo-, hetero- and biocatalysis as well as reaction engineering.
Optical Medical Imaging Studentships
OPTIMA is a 4 year PhD training programme combining excellent research and PhD supervision in world-leading scientific environments, and a bespoke programme of business training in healthcare innovation and entrepreneurship.
The Optical Medical Imaging Centre for Doctoral Training is currently accepting applications for Sept 2018 entry. The closing date for Overseas students was 16th November 2017 and the closing date for UK/EU students is 21st December 2017.See the Optima website for details.
