There are multiple CDTs across Scottish Physics. All are part-funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, EPSRC.
The Scottish Doctoral Training Centre in Condensed Matter Physics (CM-CDT) is a collaboration between the Universities of Edinburgh, Heriot-Watt and St Andrews providing international-level doctoral training in the core discipline of condensed matter physics. Commencing in 2009 and part funded by the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, CM-CDT offers 4-year studentships.
The Centre for Doctoral Training in Applied Photonics is a collaboration between the Universities of Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Heriot-Watt, St Andrews and Strathclyde spanning physics and engineering. This CDT, part funded by the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, was created to meet industry's need for highly skilled engineers in the photonics-electronics interface; companies developing photonics-enabled products and services, from consumer technology and mobile computing devices to healthcare and security. CMT-AP offers EngD or PhD studentships.
The CDT in Intelligent Sensing and Measurement is a collaboration between the Universities of Glasgow and Edinburgh spanning physics and engineering and addresses sensing and measurement across applications that impact all areas of life, from integrated atomic clocks for GPS location through the myriad of chemical and physical sensors found in science, industry, environmental monitoring, consumer goods, biomedicine, food, energy and transport. Part funded by UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, CDT-ISM offers 4-year studentships.
