Our CGE PhD projects have all been recruited for and are currently underway. There will not be any more PhD opportunities for this round of funding (from 2014 to the year 2020). However, if you're still interested in gaining a postgraduate qualification through research, and being paid to do so, please see our current Masters Projects. If you would like to hear from some of our previous researchers about their experiences, why not check out our case studies? There are also PhD by Research opportunities available with our partner project Recirculate. Please see our Recirculate page for more details.

"The facilities are second to none and the research quality is high. I have produced a PhD in an area of study I am very passionate in... my research has such a technical edge I never imagined it could have. My expenses covered my travel to Iceland - it really has been absolutely incredible to work out there. I don’t feel I can put a price on the experience I’ve had!"
Rebecca Burns, Researcher with Isoprime
"I was interested in an industry-focused PhD because it would allow me to contribute to fundamental science research, alongside seeing a direct real-world impact of my work. It was exciting to be able to be a part of a unique scheme and I am certain having this collaborative experience will be of a great advantage to my career!"
