We still have fully funded studentships available for bright and enthusiastic Engineers and Scientists who are looking for challenging
and exciting research opportunities. Working with our many industry sponsors, we have a selection of projects and themes to choose from.
Applicants can apply directly to a 1-2-1 Industry sponsored PhD or choose from our pool of multi-industry focussed projects. Check out our new 1-2-1 project being advertised now on FindaPhD below.

To apply follow the instructions on the advert or contact Centre Manager Kimberley Matthews - Hyde on email@example.com
More than just a PhD.....
Our students have the opportunity to be involved in just more than research throughout there time with the iTCDT. Not only is our programme designed to equip our researchers with relevant tribology training and a physical sciences background, we provide training beyond Tribology, providing professional skills needed for either a successful career within industry or academia. Both Universities have a strong provision through our respective Doctoral Development Porgrammes, and the combination of appropriate training activities will form a foundation professional skills training.
Our researchers are actively encouraged to take part in a number of Outreach and Public engagement activities which include STEM events for school children, Maths Tutoring in local secondary Schools, filming for BBC Bitesize shows and presenting their work at both national and International conferences and events. We even encourage the odd 'pub' presentation as demonstrated this year by CDT 3rd year student Sam McMaster at Pint of Science 2018.
