Course content

This is an exciting opportunity to undertake a 4 year funded PhD in Molecules to Product.

The Centre for Doctoral Training in Molecules to Product will train tomorrow’s research leaders with the skills and know-how in designing, characterising and developing the next generation of chemical and material based products.
The vision is to underpin a ‘design and supply’ paradigm instead of the current road map of inventing, developing then manufacturing. This approach will assist industry to mitigate against wasted development time and costs and to focus on products and processes where the risk of failure is reduced.
The research projects range from original research delivered entirely within an academic environment through to fundamental research in partnership with industry.
Benefits:
  • Interdisciplinary training programme supervised by world class researchers
  • Key professional skills training with a focus on decision making, innovation and enterprise
  • Industrial research placement opportunities
  • The University has world-leading strengths in analytical science and associated facilities within the Bragg Centre
  • Benefit from partnerships with the Sir Henry Royce Institute and Diamond Light Source
  • Join research collaborations and training placements at universities and organisations from the Americas, Europe, Asia and Australia
There are a number of places available to UK/EU students for September 2019 entry. The application deadline is 16/08/2019.
