Vacancy Information
The UCL EPSRC DTP has fully funded 4 year studentships available for study in any UCL Faculty through an open competition.
You can apply for MPhil/PhD, MRes/PhD, or EngD programmes in any UCL Faculty. Studentship projects must lie within the EPSRC Themes and Research Areas – which include topics such as Manufacturing the Future, Healthcare Technologies, Digital Economy and many more topics within Engineering, Physical Sciences, and Mathematical Sciences.
The UCL prospectus has details of the available research degree programmes. The list of UCL Faculty websites may help you to find more information and contact details for their constituent departments.
Studentships are expected to start on 27th September 2021 unless exceptional circumstances require an alternate start date.
Students will be initially registered for 4 years (or pro-rata equivalent for part-time students) and are expected to submit their thesis within this period.
