Science & Solutions for a Changing Planet DTP
This is a unique and prestigious doctoral training opportunity. Based out of the Grantham Institute, this NERC funded, innovative programme integrates six core research partners and 27 other private and public sector partners to train and inspire a new generation of environmental experts and leaders to tackle some of the toughest challenges of our time.
PhD programmes (III)
PhD in Applied Mathematics
The Applied Mathematics and Mathematical Physics (AMMP) Section is the largest section in the department, with well over 100 members. Its research prominence and national and international standing hinges on the success of our doctoral training environment. The research environment is vibrant and the Section runs numerous weekly seminars in each of the core areas as well as the Applied Mathematics Colloquia that are high profile events with leading international speakers.
Medical Imaging CDT
The Centre for Doctoral Training in Medical Imaging provides a comprehensive interdisciplinary PhD programme in Medical Imaging, specifically designed to meet the challenges in healthcare and medical imaging. King's College London and Imperial College London, two world leading research-focused universities, collaborate to create an interdisciplinary training approach specifically designed to provide a unique PhD experience.
PhD programmes (IV)
EPSRC CDT in Diamond Science & Technology
This CDT brings together a consortium of eight universities – Warwick, Aberystwyth, Bristol, Cardiff, Imperial, Newcastle, Oxford, and Strathclyde – and forty academic partners who provide the necessary complementary research excellence and breadth to enable transformative breakthroughs in DST.
CDT in Neurotechnology
The Centre for Neurotechnology is hosted by Imperial College’s Institute of Biomedical Engineering. It aims to foster collaborative research at the interface of neuroscience and engineering across the Faculties of Engineering, Medicine and Natural Sciences, as well as with satellites at Oxford and the Crick Institute.
PhD programmes (V)
British Heart Foundation Centre of Research Excellence
The British Heart Foundation (BHF) Centre of Research Excellence at Imperial was originally funded for six years in 2008, with the aim of promoting innovative, world-leading cardiovascular research and training at the interface of science, technology and medicine. The Centre was renewed by the BHF in 2014 for a further five years, through 2019, and is directed by Professor Michael Schneider.
PhD in Bioengineering
The Department of Bioengineering leads the national and international bioengineering agenda, advancing the frontiers of our knowledge in biomedical engineering, biological engineering and biomimetics. Our PhD students are encouraged to interact with researchers working in different areas fostering the intellectual capabilities and practical skills needed to cooperate with engineers, clinicians and scientists from a variety of academic backgrounds.
PhD programmes (VI)
Wellcome Trust PhD
A particular strength of Imperial College lies in the field of infection research. Now in its thirteenth successful year, this Wellcome Trust programme provides an outstanding opportunity for PhD students to train in areas of basic science that have direct relevance to the development of novel approaches to the prevention and treatment of infection.
The Pharmacat Consortium was established in 2006, with industrial partners AstraZeneca (AZ), GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and Pfizer, to promote and support stronger collaboration between Chemistry and Chemical Engineering - both first rate departments at Imperial College. Syngenta and Lilly joined in 2010.
PhD programmes (VII)
High Energy Physics
High energy physics addresses basic questions about matter and energy, such as the origin of mass and the observed asymmetry between matter and anti-matter. Much of the Imperial HEP programme is directed at discovering where the Standard Model will break down, since theoretical expectations imply that it cannot be the final story. This will be accomplished by testing predictions to high accuracy and looking for phenomena outside the model such as supersymmetry or extra dimensions.
NERC CDT Quantitative Methods in Ecology & Evolution
The CDT will offer training (between 2017 & 2023) with a focus on ecosystems and relevant evolutionary processes, linking theory with data collection, assimilation, analysis, interpretation and visualisation, leading to prediction, with modelling at its core.
