Four-4-year PhD in Nano Science with focus on Nano Assembly University of Cambridge:

Nano Science &Technology Doctoral Training Centre! 

The University of Cambridge calls, invites applications for 4-year PhD program starting in October 2013 at its Nano Science & Technology Doctoral Training Centre (NanoDTC). The focal point of this EPSRC centre for doctoral training is on Assembly of Functional Nanomaterials and Nanodevices, working from Nano Science through Engineering to Applications, with a view to realizing scalable nanomaterials and nanodevices. 

The first year of the programme consist of taught Nano courses across Physics, Engineering, Chemistry and Materials Science, together with short and medium term research projects, and an extensive, wide-ranging range of lab practicals. Towards the end of this first year students are well equipped to engage, take on fully in their own PhD topic selection process. Approved interdisciplinary PhD topics are then pursued and completed in one of almost a hundred Nano research groups around the University for a additional three years, with second supervisors from another department. 

A significant component of the programme is exposure, spotlight to innovation and business courses through the Judge Business School and through programmed sessions with partner Nanotechnology companies. The cohort, followers of around 10 PhD students per year in the NanoDTC will continue to work together closely together throughout the entire PhD programme, with financial support provided for international conferences as well. 

We invite applications from top-class independently-minded undergraduates expecting to graduate with a high degree (equivalent to a First class honours (1st) or Second class honours, upper division (2.i) in a UK 4-year undergraduate Masters (MSci, MPhys etc.) in a relevant science or engineering discipline. Applicants should have an interest, significance in innovation, nanoscience and nanotechnology, and be motivated to work across traditional disciplinary boundaries. Full financial support is available for UK students. Funding for a limited number of EU students is also available.
