EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Water and Waste Infrastructure and Services Engineered for Resilience (Water-WISER)

A Water-WISER PhD offers a unique opportunity to contribute to the generation of new knowledge to improve water, waste & sanitation infrastructure and services for the poorest and most marginalised members of our global community.

Fifty funded PhD studentships are available over the next 5 years for UK and EU students.  The details are as follows:

Studentships consist of a 4-year stipend paid monthly (at EPSRC standard rates, rising each year: e.g. for the academic year 2021/2022 the stipend is £15,609 tax-free). All fees are paid. A maximum sum of £20,000 over 4 years is available for fieldwork and laboratory costs; this could increase if a sector partner is involved in co-funding the project.

International students are eligible for a full scholarship (stipend and fees paid, plus fieldwork costs) though a maximum of 3 places are available per year. Note: places have been filled for entry in Sept 2021.

The studentships will be hosted by three world leading water sanitation and waste management UK research centres, each with a pedigree of more than 40 years of relevant research and teaching experience:
