EPSRC Doctoral Training Partnership


The Engineering and Physical Science Research Council (EPSRC) Doctoral Training Partnership at King’s College London offers PhD Research Studentships across the Faculty of Natural and Mathematical Sciences and the Faculty of Life Sciences and Medicine, particularly in the School of Biomedical Engineering and Imaging Sciences.



School of Biomedical Engineering and Imaging Sciences

DTP students in the School of Biomedical Engineering and Imaging Sciences can undertake research projects as part of the Surgical and Interventional Engineering programme, that have been developed around 4 central themes:  smart sensors and actuators, computer-assisted interventions, computational modelling and materials and theranostics. The School also offers DTP projects in areas such as Image Acquisition and Image Reconstruction, Imaging Biology and Imaging Chemistry,  Medical Image Computing, Imaging Robotics, Machine/Deep Learning. A key strength of our DTP consists in its world-leading teaching facilities embedded within St Thomas' Hospital in the heart of central London. Students will also enjoy access to wider School infrastructure such as the new London Medical Imaging & Artificial Intelligence Centre for Value-Based Healthcare and London’s first high-field 7 Tesla MR Centre. Further, the students have access to the state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities and mock-operating theatre of the Department of Surgical and Interventional Engineering.

Further information is available on

Details of upcoming project calls are circulated via email to all academics in the School.




Faculty of Natural and Mathematical Sciences


The Faculty of Natural & Mathematical Sciences allocate a number of EPSRC Doctoral Training Partnership studentships per academic year across its departments.  These studentships cover the standard period of completion of our research programmes (i.e.3 years) and start on 1 October of each year.


To be eligible for a full studentship (stipend plus fees), applicants must be a UK resident for a period of three years immediately prior to the date of application for an award (but not wholly or mainly for the purpose of full-time education).  Residents of other member states of the European Union are eligible for fees-only awards; however, they are eligible for the full award if they have spent three years prior to the application for study in the UK.  

Applicants from outside the European Union are not eligible for support from the EPSRC DTP grant.

Application process:

Each Department will consider all eligible applicants who apply for entry to the relevant PhD programme, and whose application has been processed and accepted.
