Abstract

True to the vision of its industrial founders determined in 1920, Swansea University delivers worldclass research with global, societal impact, drives economic growth in the region and nationally and retains a fixed focus upon providing an inspirational and outstanding student experience.

In particular, postgraduate research is an integral aspect of the University's vision for its long-term future. It has an ambitious plan for growth, improvement to the research environment and support for PGR students, set out in our recently revised Research & Innovation Strategy (2017-2020).

The EPSRC Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) 2018/19 enables Swansea University to expand its training and support of the next generation of researchers across Engineering and the Physical Sciences, through pioneering fields as diverse as antimatter and quantum technologies in healthcare, to the design of the Bloodhound supersonic car and photovoltaic devices. The EPSRC DTP investment supports approximately 18 studentships per year for new doctoral students, and enables the University to continue to enhance its strong track record of collaborative partnerships with industry and academia. Swansea is committed to distributing these opportunities to disciplines that align both with EPSRC's priority areas and with the University's research strengths. Studentships will be available in and across the boundaries of three disciplines: Engineering, Science (including Mathematics) and Medicine.

College of Engineering: is based at Swansea University's £450M Bay Campus (opened in 2015), featuring four buildings dedicated to engineering with high-tech laboratories and world-class facilities geared towards industrial research. The College hosts the Materials and Manufacturing Academy (M2A), a Centre for Doctoral Training fully funded by EPSRC, WEFO and industry, the world-leading Energy Safety Research Institute and the Zienkiewicz Centre for Computational Engineering.

College of Science: integrates research in Physics, Chemistry (reinstated in 2017/18), Computer Science, Mathematics, Biosciences and Geography. Phase 2 of the Bay Campus development includes the Computational Foundry (open from September 2018), a £31M investment to nurture and grow a dedicated community of computational and mathematical scientists.

Swansea University Medical School: enhances the portfolio of Engineering and Physical Sciences at Swansea through the £22M Centre for Nanohealth, a unique open access interdisciplinary research centre bringing together industry experts with researchers in Science, Engineering and Medicine to lead innovations in healthcare and the £8M purpose-built Data Science Building serves as a hub for interdisciplinary research into health services, bioscience, epidemiology, computer science, mathematics and physics.

Typically, EPSRC DTP studentships are advertised from December (for an October start) with decisions usually made by April. Details of PhD projects and specific timescales for applying can be found here: http://www.swansea.ac.uk/postgraduate/scholarships/research/
