The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Future Infrastructure and Built Environment (FIBE-CDT) in Cambridge University is currently looking to recruit talented students for a number of fully funded studentships to carry out cutting edge research within a broad range of both core and interdisciplinary civil engineering topics at the UK's top ranking Engineering Department. Successful applicants will join an innovative model of doctoral education focused on cohort-based training.

The MRes+ PhD programme is structured as a 1 year MRes + 3 year PhD. You will undertake training in both core civil engineering subjects and specialist modules to develop your research interests and prepare you for your PhD studies. The MRes programme is designed to allow you to explore your interests through labs, courses, group projects and involvement with industry partners.

The FIBE-CDT's research and training activities focus on integrating Cambridge's internationally recognised strength in structures, geotechnics, materials, construction, sustainable development, building physics and water and waste within the wider context of related engineering disciplines, architecture, the sciences, land economy, manufacturing, business, economics, policy and social science, and also includes entrepreneurial training delivered in collaboration with the Judge Business School.
