As a major UK science facility, Diamond offers exciting prospects for PhD students across a wide variety of scientific and technical areas.
The majority of Diamond joint-funded students involve collaboration with UK universities and are fully funded studentships that Diamond support by a 50% contribution towards university fees, student stipend and certain travel, subsistence and accommodation costs combined with a 50% contribution from the university.
Students are given the opportunity to undertake a research project and submit a thesis for examination in accordance with the University’s regulations governing their PhD programme and the research is intended to lead to academic publications and to further the student’s career. Studentship projects are extremely varied, but are all similar in the sense that they are pushing the boundaries of what is possible on Diamond’s beamlines.
Benefits of Diamond's jointly funded studentships
Currently Diamond has around 110 active PhD students in collaboration with universities, taking on 15-20 per year.
