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
The rEaCt CDT Programme
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:
- With the interdisciplinary nature of the programme, students will be trained to tackle challenges in the field of synthetic chemistry, engineering and data science, with high-level expertise in at least two of these areas.
- Using the latest synthesis and analytical tools, our CDT alumni will also hold a high level of technical proficiency; to make, measure and model reactions, including automated reactors in combination with process/data analytical tools.

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 and the successful applicant will subsequently need to apply online.

Interviews are ongoing and will continue until we have filled in all available places. Early applications are strongly encouraged.
Due to the spread of COVID-19 and its societal implications, interviews may be held on a virtual platform but we will aim to accommodate onsite interviews where permitted.
