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 ISIS neutron source. 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) Projects will be available in the areas of Energy, Microscopy, Physics and Medical R&D and Innovation


Direct recruitment to a specific PhD project, with 60 CATS of MSc modules taken in the first year of the PhD (leading to a certificate). See our PhD projects page for a list of specific projects for which we are currently recruiting.

For all applications we have a two step process:

Step 1

  1. Complete the application enquiry form, upload your cv and additional documents requested.
  2. The applications panel will assess your documents and if you are eligible according to the academic and residency criteria you will be invited to interview. We hold interview days throughout the year so you should hear back from us within two weeks of submitting your form.
  3. Attend the interview at the University of Warwick (where possible). We can also arrange Skype interviews and provide assistance with travel costs where there is a need.

Step 2

  1. If you are successful at interview you will be notified by email of an unofficial offer of a place and funding and invited to complete a formal application via the university PG admissions system.
  2. PG admissions will be advised of your interview outcome and offer. You will then just need to fulfill the formal requirements for PG admissions at Warwick.
  3. You will then receive formal notification of your place from PG Admissions and a funding offer letter from the CDT.
