Warwick Centre for Doctoral Training in Analytical Science

Warwick Centre for Doctoral Training in Analytical Science

A new generation of Analytical Scientists

With the world-leading facilities and expertise in Analytical Science at Warwick and partner external facilities (e.g., Diamond, ILL, ISIS) at their disposal, our students will graduate with a unique combination of skills in exploiting synergies between different experimental methods, e.g., diffraction, electrochemistry, mass spectrometry, microscopy and NMR, and in harnessing the power of combining data collection with experimental design, statistical analysis and simulation. Training will be delivered from across physical sciences, engineering and manufacturing, statistics, life and medical sciences in close partnership with industry, with research areas including pharmaceuticals, agro-chemicals and additives, soft matter, biological systems, energy and functional materials.

Warwick Centre for Doctoral Training in Analytical Science

The core principles of the Analytical Science CDT are:

  • World-leading Analytical Science expertise and infrastructure for delivering high quality research where experiment is linked with statistics and theory-based design and interpretation
  • Problem-driven advances across agro and speciality chemicals, materials, pharmaceuticals, health and personal care
  • An established integrative and cross-disciplinary research environment for delivering PhD training
  • Rapid technology transfer between academia and industry
  • Catalysis of academia-industry and industry-industry collaborations

Integrated 1+3 year programme MSc + PhD

  • Students have a choice of studying in the 1 + 3 MSc + PhD format (with PhD project choice during the MSc), or integrated training offered during a 4 year PhD with certificate, with selection of a specific advertised project (current such projects are available with Bruker and the ISIS neutron source)
  • Multidisciplinary projects and modules - spanning experiment and quantitation
  • Strong industrial links
  • Significant emphasis on transferable skills team building, communication of science, decision making, leadership, ethics, research proposals, careers
  • Fostering a research and training community
Warwick Centre for Doctoral Training in Analytical Science

Warwick CDT in Analytical Science offers a four-year degree programme (MSc + PhD) in Multidisciplinary Science.

Year 1:

Rigorous MSc programme comprising of taught modules in frontier analytical techniques including electrochemistry and sensors, magnetic resonance, mass spectrometry, microscopy & imaging, separation science, X-ray and neutron that link to underpinning modules in, e.g., chemistry and statistics, together with group-based as well as individual-based research projects.

Years 2–4:

Multidisciplinary PhD in Analytical Science. A wide pool of supervisors from Chemistry & Physics, Engineering & Manufacturing, Life Sciences & Medicine and Statistics, as well as industrial partners from the pharmaceutical, agrochemical, additives, energy sectors and instrument manufacturers. Each MSc or PhD research project will be aimed at the creation of new instrumentation and techniques or improvements to existing methods to solve real-world problems that cannot be tackled now.

We invite applications from recent graduates with a strong first degree in any related discipline, including Chemistry, Engineering, Life Sciences, Mathematics, Pharmacy, Physics and Statistics.

Studentships are available for UK citizens for September 2019 entry (full fees + consumables budget and minimum £14k stipend). EU students can apply for a limited number of stipends covering tuition fees. Applications are invited throughout the year. Please visit the website for more details.
