EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Molecules to Product

50 funded PhD studentships will be available over the next 5 years for UK and EU students.

The Centre for Doctoral Training in Molecules to Product will train tomorrow’s research leaders with the skills and know-how in designing, characterising and developing the next generation of chemical and material based products.

The vision is to underpin a ‘design and supply’ paradigm instead of the current road map of inventing, developing then manufacturing. This approach will assist industry to mitigate against wasted development time and costs and to focus on products and processes where the risk of failure is reduced. The research projects range from original research delivered entirely within an academic environment through to fundamental research in partnership with industry.

This is an exciting opportunity to undertake a 4 year funded PhD in Molecules to Product. 10 funded places are available for 2020 entry (check website for details).You are advised to apply as soon as possible.


  • Interdisciplinary training programme supervised by world class researchers
