SSPC recruiting for 3 fully-funded 4-year PhD studentships in the EPSRC-SFI Centre for Doctoral Training in Transformative Pharmaceutical Technologies

Funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Council, Science Foundation Ireland and 19 industry partners, the EPSRC-SFI Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Transformative Pharmaceutical Technologies provides world-leading training to prepare strategic-thinking scientists for high achieving careers in the pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors.

The Synthesis and Solid State Pharmaceutical Centre (SSPC), Ireland, is recruiting for three fully funded studentships to commence in September 2019. Successful SSPC PhD applicants may be registered with the School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, Trinity College Dublin, the School of Pharmacy, University College Cork or the School of Chemical and Bioprocess Engineering, University College Dublin.

These studentships will be aligned with twelve further studentships being offered by the Schools of Pharmacy at the University of Nottingham and University College London (UCL).
Over the course of their PhD studies, SSPC CDT students will engage extensively with other students in the CDT based in the UK, and with other Ireland-based SSPC students.
