The University of Warwick’s Centre for Doctoral Training in Analytical Science is inviting expressions of interest from appropriately qualified candidates for one fully-funded four-year studentship (fees, stipend and consumables budget). 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. The successful candidate will complete an MSc in Analytical Science in the first year and continue onto a PhD in one of the following 10 areas:
- AI-enhanced Low-dose Cryo-ptychographic Tomography for Organic-Inorganic Hybrid Nanostructure Professor Peng Wang (Physics)
- Assessing the potential of new organic semiconductors via THz mobility spectroscopy Dr James Lloyd-Hughes (Physics)
- Design, Synthesis and Application of Fluorescence Probes for Biological Imaging Dr Stefan Roesner (Chemistry)
- Developing a solid-state NMR approach to characterise coatings and scaffolds that support mammalian cell culture Dr Wing Ying Chow (Physics)
- Development of small molecule antivirals Dr Andrew Marsh (Chemistry)
- Getting big results from big data: Statistics meets mass spectrometry Dr Simon Spencer (Statistics)
- Magnetism and strongly correlated electron systems. Title: New classes of quantum material studied using ultra-high magnetic fields Dr Paul Goddard (Physics)
- Membrane morphology as a cellular target: Exploiting membrane curvature sensing peptides as unique tools for biology Dr Ann Dixon (Chemistry)
- Photochemistry of Metal-Oxo Clusters Studied in the Single Crystal Phase Dr Sebastian Pike (Chemistry)
- Understanding halogen and chalcogen bonding selectivity profiles for the development of highly selective catalysts Dr Mark Greenhalgh (Chemistry)
