A PhD in Analytical Chemistry involves conducting experimental research and testing new methodologies that help in the analysis of chemical compounds.

What's it like to do a PhD in Analytical Chemistry?

Analytical Chemistry is a field that involves the application of chemical principles to test and identify chemical compounds. A PhD in Analytical Chemistry will involve working on a research project under the guidance of an expert supervisor. You'll likely be using analytical methods such as chromatography and spectroscopy to test the properties of chemical compounds.

Some of the issues that Analytical Chemistry researchers aim to solve include climate change, ageing, drug development and safer drinking water.

Some popular Analytical Chemistry research topics are:

  • Analytical chemistry of pharmaceuticals
  • Analytical chemistry of polymers
  • Chemical forensics
  • Chemical production and consumption
  • Chemical analysis using nanomaterials

If you are considering a PhD in Analytical Chemistry that has a computational focus, you will likely be working on projects such as computer aided analysis or data processing.

You might also be required to complete some training modules during your first year to gain a deeper understanding of the field and prepare you for your own research.

In addition to attending research meetings, writing papers and completing other academic duties, you might be asked to complete modules that improve your research skills.

PhD in Analytical Chemistry entry requirements

Bachelors and Masters degrees in Analytical Chemistry are usually a mandatory entry requirement for a PhD in a related subject like Chemistry or Physics.

Depending on where you study, you might also be asked to show that you'll be able to complete the research programme given the academic resources available at the university.

You'll also be required to show that you have the language skills to complete a PhD in Analytical Chemistry. This will usually be an IELTS score of 6.5 or a TOEFL score of 89.

PhD in Analytical Chemistry funding options 

In the UK, a PhD in Analytical Chemistry would be funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) which provides fully funded studentships along with a guaranteed monthly stipend. You will also be entitled to an annual tuition fee waiver.

PhD in Analytical Chemistry careers

Most Analytical Chemistry PhD graduates choose to continue their research careers and apply their knowledge to solve real-world problems. You can also choose to work in industries such as pharmaceuticals and biomedical engineering.
