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.

Annual Conference

Between 5 - 8 June 2023 AS CDT students will be participating in the residential Annual Conference which, this year, is taking place in Shropshire.

Annual Conference provides our CDT students with an opportunity to take some time away from the lab to engage in cohort building and training activities which will enhance their time at the University of Warwick.

Guest Lecture

On 16 June 2023 Prof Adam Veige joins us in OC1.05 from the University of Florida to deliver his guest lecture for YRM2023 (

Transferrable Skills

All CDT students are invited to participate in a programme of Transferrable Skills workshops throughout their research degree. These are delivered via a combination of online and in-person workshop as well as residential retreats including a winter trip to Cumberland Lodge in Windsor.
