PhD opportunities

PhD opportunities: Science Graduate School

Our seven departments recruit talented PhD students each year to support their research interests. We support the recruitment and training of students through the Science Graduate School, you portal to a PhD in science at the University of Sheffield.

Through the Science Graduate School website, you can find PhD and funding opportunities across the University of Sheffield's seven science departments. There is also information on how to apply for your PhD once you have found a project and funding, and what to do if you have your own idea for a project.

Science Graduate School

Each science department also has its own PhD webpages, where you can find details of specific projects and funding that are available in each department.
