EPSRC Doctoral Training Partnership

The University of Exeter EPSRC DTP (Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council) is offering up to 28 fully funded doctoral studentships over the 2018/19 and 2019/20 period. Students will be given sector-leading training and development with outstanding facilities and resources. The EPSRC DTP studentships will be offered across the whole of EPSRC’s remit, with projects at the interface of disciplines and collaborations with users where appropriate. The DTP funding will be distributed using an open and transparent process, underpinned by clear criteria. Studentships will be awarded to outstanding applicants, the distribution will be overseen by the University’s EPSRC Strategy Group in partnership with the Doctoral College.

The University of Exeter stimulates, supports and sustains a vibrant research and intellectual environment, across and between disciplines for postgraduate and early career researchers.  We have invested £350 million pounds in Science and Engineering since 2008 and we are one of the fastest growing and fastest rising research intensive universities in the UK.  We were ranked 16th out of 134 universities in the national Research Excellence Framework (REF) and 98% of our research is rated international quality by REF.

Studentship opportunities will be offered from early November 2017 with a consistent application deadline of January 2018. Offers will be confirmed by March for commencement in October 2018.

The terms and conditions of training grants provide the framework for EPSRC DTPs and are available from the RCUK website along with the Training Grant Guide.
