Applicants should have the equivalent of a UK first class or upper second class Honours degree in chemistry or other relevant discipline, and must have an interest in synthetic chemistry (i.e. polymer or organic). The studentship provides a maintenance grant/stipend (at the Research Council UK rate) and tuition fees at the Home/EU rate for a period of 36-months. Owing to funding restrictions non-EU citizens cannot be considered. Only UK and EU applicants can be considered for this studentship.
