Study with Warwick Analytical Science CDT

In this CDT, we are recruiting students to PhD training in experimental analytical science. All projects will involve supervision input from an external partner, i.e., one of the industry companies supporting the CDT or an external research organisation, e.g., the Diamond Light Source, ILL and ISIS X-ray and neutron sources. Four years' funding is provided, with two recruitment routes offered:

1+3: MSc followed by PhD, with the choice of the PhD project made during the MSc (during the second 10-week project)


Direct recruitment to a specific PhD project, with 60 CATS of MSc modules taken in the first year of the PhD (leading to award of a Postgraduate Certificate in Analytical Science).

Applying to study

Positions are now available for 2023 study on either the 1+3 route or the direct PhD route.

We invite applications from recent graduates with a strong first degree in any related discipline, including Chemistry, Engineering, Life Sciences, Mathematics, Pharmacy, Physics and Statistics.

Studentships for UK citizens are offered with full fees + consumables budget and a stipend in line with the UKRI recommended rate (N.B. for 2022-23 this is £17,668 per year).
