How to Apply

Please check Current Opportunities to see if recruitment is open.  We are unable to accept or review applications outside of recruitment rounds.

To apply, please download and complete the Horizon CDT PhD Application Form (Word) and return it by email or post to the address on the Form.  You must also include: a CV, copies of certificates/transcripts (where relevant), and a personal statement.

The personal statement should include a brief statement of your research interests, how they relate to the Horizon CDT’s research themes and why you are applying to this particular programme.  Please keep this statement to a maximum of 2 pages length.  We do not expect a research proposal from you at this stage as this will be developed during the first year.

Please forward the Referee Report document at the end of the Application Form to your nominated referees, and ask them to return completed forms to the address indicated.
