Applications are invited for ten 4-year MRes/Ph.D. EPSRC CDT rEaCt studentship projects – Cohort 2 (Intake October 2020)
Fully funded EPSRC – and some industry-funded – studentships are available for Home Students and EU nationals who have been ordinarily resident in the UK for at least three years prior to the start date a CDT studentship, i.e. for a 1st Oct 2020 start date you would need to have been resident in the UK since 30th Sept 2017.
Self-funded overseas students are also welcome to apply.
In turn, this stimulates developments that can underpin smarter high-throughput approaches for data handling with the promise of offering unprecedented insights to molecular processes.
The rEaCt CDT aims to provide cross-sector training for a new generation of synthetic chemists with the interdisciplinary skills necessary for the challenges and opportunities created by the data-revolution in the 21st century.
The CDT assembles a multi-disciplinary team of internationally-leading researchers at Imperial College and benefits from significant strategic infrastructural and capital investment on cutting edge, state-of-the-art technology and facilities such as ROAR, and the Agilent Advanced Measurement Suite
MRes (Year 1): The first year of the 4-year programme comprises of an MRes in Advanced Molecular Synthesis, where the CDT students will progress through an academic program of lectures and workshops on three core modules aimed at underpinning the fundamentals in synthetic chemistry, engineering and statistical sciences. Each student will also undertake a 9-month individual research project in a chosen area.
Ph.D. (Years 2 – 4): Following the successful completion of the MRes, students will pursue their independent project in subsequent years.
All students will be encouraged to undertake a period of placement and internship, in an industrial or an academic collaborator’s lab, during or immediately after their Ph.D.
Profile of the Researcher produced by this CDT:
Applicants should hold or expect to obtain a first or upper-second class honours degree or equivalent in Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, or a related field. A Master’s degree in one of the above fields is an essential requirement. Imperial College PhD entry requirements must be met.
