Students will study for a multidisciplinary PhD in Analytical Science. There is a wide pool of Warwick supervisors from Chemistry & Physics, Engineering & Manufacturing, Life Sciences & Medicine and Statistics, as well as industrial partners from the pharmaceutical, agrochemical and additives sectors and instrument manufacturers. Each MSc or PhD research project will be aimed at the creation of new instrumentation and techniques or improvements to existing methods to solve real-world problems that cannot be tackled now.
