PhD training, research and access to talent

Helping businesses gain access to research talent and capacity

We can help business access talent and research capacity (through CASE partnerships and 3-month funded industry placements) via our two leading PhD training programmes.

We also work closely with colleagues in the University Careers Service to ensure any vacancies or opportunities reach all relevant students.
