Who we are

A four-year multi-disciplinary doctoral training programme in advanced inorganic materials

The Inorganic Materials for Advanced Manufacturing Centre for Doctoral Training (IMAT CDT) is an EPSRC-funded centre focused on training the next generation of scientists. Our focus is on inorganic materials – spanning design, synthesis and characterisation and focusing on the raw materials, process and products – and our goal is to equip and enable a new generation of scientists capable of addressing critical societal challenges.

We offer a fully-funded four year PhD programme, comprised of taught courses and a substantive research project. The IMAT CDT is based in the Departments of Chemistry and Materials of the University of Oxford, but it also integrates faculty from the Departments of Physics or Engineering, both for our training programme and collaborative projects. Our CDT brings together over fifty academics, nineteen industrial partners, and several international centres of excellence.
