Up to six fully-funded PhD studentships available for October 2018 entry

The Department of Electronic Engineering undertakes world-leading research in a number of areas of electronic and computer engineering. The most recent Research Excellence Framework rated 87% of our research World Leading or Internationally Excellent.

We are pleased to announce that the Department has up to six fully funded PhD studentships starting in the 2018/19 academic year. These studentships will cover the tuition fee at the UK/EU rate (£4,310 in 2018/19) and a stipend at the standard research council rate for a period of 3 years (£14,553 in 2017/18).  International (non-EU) candidates are also welcome to apply but will be required to pay the difference between the UK/EU and international tuition fee rates.

Up to four of these studentships are available in any research area in the Department of Electronic Engineering. Our research groups have a number of suggested projects available, information on these can be found on our research project pages. You are strongly encouraged to contact the appropriate member of staff for each project, in the first instance, who will be able to advise you on your application.

Two of these studentships will be focused in the following areas (click on the link to find out full details about each project):

Candidates must have (or expect to obtain) a minimum of a UK upper second class honours degree (2.1) or equivalent in Electronic and Electrical Engineering, Physics, Computer Science, Mathematics, Music Technology or a related subject.

How to apply:

Applicants must apply via the University's online application system. Please read the application guidance first so that you understand the various steps in the application process. To apply, please select the link for either the PhD in Electronic Engineering or the PhD in Music Technology as appropriate for October 2018 entry.

Please specify in your PhD application the research project (and member of academic staff) which you are applying for and that you would like to be considered for one of these departmental studentships.
