CMAC, the EPSRC Future Manufacturing Research Hub in Continuous Manufacturing and Advanced Crystallisation, is a major initiative that aims to accelerate the adoption of continuous manufacturing technologies for high value chemical products such as pharmaceuticals. The Hub brings together a UK team that includes seven top research universities (Bath, Cambridge, Imperial College London, Loughborough, Leeds, Sheffield and Strathclyde) and eight pharmaceutical companies (AstraZeneca, GSK, Bayer, Lily, Novartis, Roche and Pfizer). We are now recruiting PhD students for our world-class post-graduate research degree programme with 3-4 year studentships starting in October 2019 across partner institutions.
The 3-4 year PhD programmes combines dynamic, multi-disciplinary training with pioneering research projects spanning the breadth of the Hub's manufacturing research scope with active involvement of industrial partners. Research opportunities include the following thematic areas:
Students will join an established community of doctoral researchers and benefit from support from internationally leading academic supervisors and expert industry practitioners and opinion leaders. Successful candidates will emerge with highly sought-after multidisciplinary skills and an international reputation for excellence in continuous manufacturing and crystallisation research.
We are inviting applications for fully funded studentships commencing October 2019 from students with a background in relevant disciplines of Science, Engineering including Pharmaceutical Science, Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Physics and other related disciplines. The multidisciplinary programme offers a dynamic and exciting training programme to equip students with the necessary skills to tackle a range of research challenges across all of the thematic areas. Applications are welcomed from UK/EU students with, or expecting to obtain, a first class or upper second class honours degree in relevant disciplines.
