EPSRC DTP Studentship in 3D Printing

Department of Engineering, Cambridge

University of Cambridge, Trinity Ln, Cambridge, UK


  • Posted on: 08th Nov 2021
  • Funding amount: Funding Available
  • Funding for: EU Students, International Students, UK Students
  • REF: NM28779
  • Closes: 15th November 2021
  • Hours: Full Time

Additive manufacturing offers virtually limitless opportunities to make devices by controlling geometry, material composition, and processing conditions at every point in an object. In the same way that biological materials are able to achieve properties far beyond those of their constituents through complex and locally varying structure, novel additively manufactured devices could feature unprecedented combinations of properties and functionality.

This project will involve developing new 3D printing machines and materials to improve the performance and functionality of 3D printed devices. The successful applicant will gain experience in a broad range of areas including 3D printing, electrical engineering, machine learning, materials science, and medical devices. There will also be diverse opportunities for interdisciplinary collaborations.

Applicants should have (or expect to obtain by the start date) at least a good 2.1 degree in an Engineering or related subject.

The EPSRC DTP studentships are fully-funded (fees and maintenance) for eligible UK students. EU and international students may be considered for a small number of awards at the UK rate. Full eligibility criteria can be found via the following link;https://epsrc.ukri.org/skills/students/guidance-on-epsrc-studentships/eligibility/

To apply for this studentship, please send your CV, academic transcripts and contact details for two academic references to Dr. Sebastian Pattinson swp29@cam.ac.uk to arrive no later than 15th November 2021.

Please note that any offer of funding will be conditional on securing a place as a PhD student. Candidates will need to apply separately for admission through the University’s Postgraduate Admissions application portal; this can be done before or after applying for this funding opportunity. Note that there is a £75 fee for PhD applications. The applicant portal can be accessed via: www.graduate.study.cam.ac.uk/courses/directory/egegpdpeg. The funding is conditional on submitting this application before 31 March 2022.

The University actively supports equality, diversity and inclusion and encourages applications from all sections of society.
