Supervisor Guide

Information for current and prospective CDT supervisors.

From 2019 to 2024, the CDT will recruit at least 60 students (~12 per year). Students are fully funded for 4 years (1 year MScR +3 year PhD) and receive £7000 allowance for research costs and conference travel.

In Year 1 students work towards a Master by Research, undertaking taught courses, group, and individual research projects. In Years 2-4 students work on an interdisciplinary PhD project and undertake tailored training, public engagement and other CDT-specific activities and events.

The recruitment process typically begins in October of each year, please check our application page for details including closing dates for applications. If you are aware of, or have been approached by, promising students please do direct them to the CDT as we are always keen to encourage high quality applications. We are also working actively to promote equality, diversity & inclusion in all things that relate to our CDT and especially welcome applications from under-represented groups.
