At the University of Exeter we combine teaching excellence and high levels of student satisfaction with world-class research at our campuses in Exeter and Cornwall. We are a member of the Russell Group of leading research-intensive universities. Our success is built on a strong partnership with our students and a clear focus on high performance

The University of Exeter is among the top 150 universities worldwide according to the Times Higher Education World University Rankings. Functional materials is a key theme of the institution’s £320m Science Strategy. This theme benefitted from the appointment of 23 new academics along with £20m of investment in research infrastructure.

Why study with us
Our PhD students (postgraduate researchers, PGRs) are highly skilled and talented researchers, with the potential to become future leaders in industry and academia.

Unlike traditional “lone-scholar” PhDs, our PGRs are embedded in a strong local network of knowledge and experiences, formed by their peers, the academic supervisors and postdocs, who support the PGRs in their research and personal development.

Training and development
PGRs have access to a wide range of training within their college and across the institution. We offer scientific as well as professional skills training such as industrial awareness, teaching qualifications and project management.

As you progress, you will receive training in public speaking, intellectual property, business awareness, and interview techniques to prepare you for the next step in your career.

What we are looking for
We are looking for individuals who are curious and solution-oriented team players with the drive to make a difference and a supportive mindset. Like us, you should be genuinely committed to equality and diversity, recognizing differences as an opportunity for enrichment and learning.If you are ready to step up and take your development to the next level, now’s the time to apply.
