PhD studentships

The Bragg Centre is proud to offer up to five PhD studentships each year, which includes fees and a maintenance grant for 3.5 years.

Each year, a range of projects covering the breadth of our materials research portfolio will be available for applications. These will address fundamental and applied problems across design, characterisation, fabrication and modelling. 

The Centre comprises more than 320 members, including 120 student members, from over sixteen Schools within the University of Leeds and has had continued investment in excellent facilities and infrastructure, including a new building opened in 2021, to ensure that our staff and students benefit from state-of-the-art, high-quality equipment and laboratories.

We are a founding partner of the Henry Royce Institute, the UK’s Institute for Advanced Materials.
