You will begin your PhD at the Aerosol Science CDT hub at the University of Bristol, with the academic team providing comprehensive training in the core physical science of aerosols, research methods, and in professionalism and translation of research. You will then have the opportunity to build networks across the 7 universities, undertaking a short project at either your home institution or another partnering institution. These training elements will equip you for your PhD research in years 2-4.
Throughout your PhD, you will be supported by a mentoring team of two academic supervisors and an industrial partner, who will host you for a placement in Year 2 or 3. You will benefit from the diverse backgrounds of your peers, with training in year 1 using team-based learning. Cooperative learning groups in subsequent years will continue to provide opportunities for peer-to-peer learning and support.
