16 PhD in the Centre for doctoral training in Soft Matter / UK
We would like to invite applications for PhD positions in the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Soft Matter for Formulation and Industrial Innovation – SOFI2 CDT.
16 fully funded, four-year PhD studentships will be available in SOFI2 CDT commencing in September 2020, for graduates in the physical and biological sciences, mathematics and engineering. SOFI2 is the successor to the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Soft Matter and Functional Interfaces (SOFI) which since 2014 has provided industrially integrated, postgraduate training in research, enterprise and innovation for future leaders in the soft matter academic and industrial sectors. SOFI2 CDT combines expertise from Durham, Leeds and Edinburgh universities, more than 25 industry partners and national facilities. It brings together more than 60 academics from departments of Physics, Chemistry, Food Science, Biology, Engineering, Earth Sciences, Computing, (Applied) Mathematics and the Durham University Business School. SOFI2 students will undertake a common 6-month, industry-facing science training course before selecting their research projects at one of the three partner Universities. Approximately half of the projects are expected to be co-sponsored by external partners and all students will have an external co-supervisor.
For further information on SOFI CDT2 and how to apply please visit the SOFI2 CDT website: www.soficdt.ac.uk
A selection of the projects that are available for the most recent cohort may be found at www.dur.ac.uk/soft.matter/soficdt/projects/ A sub-set of projects for the 2020 intake will be posted on the SOFI website in the coming weeks.
The closing date for applications for the first selection round is Wednesday 27th November 2019.
