Our vision is to lead the transformation in the resilience of our infrastructure by conducting world-class, cutting-edge industry-relevant research and you can be part of this. We offer an inspirational doctoral training programme focused on cohort-based training for talented students from diverse academic and social backgrounds.

We are currently looking to recruit 12 students to start in October 2020 on our four-year cohort-based MRes + PhD programme. In the first year, you’ll undertake training in broad infrastructure engineering topics as well as specialist modules to help develop your research skills and prepare you for your PhD studies in years 2-4.

The CDT’s research and training activities capitalise on Cambridge’s internationally recognised strengths across the engineering and sciences disciplines as well as wider university collaborations for underpinning theoretical and experimental knowledge for infrastructure research.

We offer fully funded EPSRC studentships (fees of £8589 and a tax-free stipend of £15,285) for UK students or provide fees only for EU students living outside the UK. Further details about eligibility can be found at: . Oversea students are welcome to apply but will need to sources their own funding.

About Department of Biochemistry, University of Cambridge

The Department of Biochemistry is a member of the School of the Biological Sciences and one of the largest departments in the University of Cambridge. The Department is especially strong in research with investigators of international standing in a wide range of disciplines including structural biology, molecular enzymology, cell signalling and control of gene expression, molecular microbiology, plant molecular biology and bioenergy, cancer and cardiovascular biology. We also have a strong cohort of independent research fellows with funding from the Wellcome Trust, British Heart Foundation, BBSRC and MRC. The Department houses multiple core facilities funded by Wellcome Trust, BBSRC and MRC to support modern biomolecular research, including 800MHz NMR, state-of-the-art X-ray crystallography, protein chemistry, mass spectrometry, metabolomics and advanced services for protein and nucleic acid sequencing. In collaboration with the Department of Genetics we have also established the Cambridge Systems Biology Centre, which hosts genomics, proteomics and associated bioinformatics. We also participate in the Wellcome Trust-MRC Cambridge Stem Cell Institute , the Cambridge Cancer Centre and other major research initiatives.
