Award description

Applications are invited for one of 12 fully funded EPSRC PhD studentships in the area of Materials Science at the University of Huddersfield. Applicants should be of outstanding quality and exceptionally motivated.

Please note that there are more projects than funded studentships and therefore this is a competitive application process that will include an interview.  After the interview the 12 most outstanding applicants will be offered a studentship.

Completed applications, including all relevant documents requested above should be submitted via-email to materials.studentships@hud.ac.uk.

The closing date for the receipt of completed applications is 30 June 2018 (23.59, BST).
