The MOAC (Molecular Organisation and Assembly in Cells) Doctoral Training Centre is a multidisciplinary centre offering:
- Four year interdisciplinary degree programme (MSc & PhD)
- Chemistry with Scientific Writing (MSc)
- Communicating Multidisciplinary Science (MSc)
- MSc in Scientific Research and Communication (MSc)
- Summer Programme in Research and communication
MSc in Mathematical Biology and Biophysical Chemistry
& PhD in Multidisciplinary Science
Fully-funded places available for October 2011 PhD studentships are available for UK students in this multi-disciplinary science Doctoral Training Centre funded by the Life Sciences Interface Programme of the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council. Graduates in Mathematical, Physical and Life Sciences who wish to develop multidisciplinary research projects in the areas of Mathematical Biology and Biophysical Chemistry are invited to apply for this 4 year doctoral training programme, the first year of which will lead to an MSc in Mathematical Biology and Biophysical Chemistry.
Note: If you are interested in more than one Warwick PhD Programme we suggest you apply only once and write at the beginning of that large space they ask you to fill in which programmes you are interested in. We will communicate between the programmes/departments and if necessary later transfer you to your final choice.
Carl Blakey Scholarship of £1000, funded by alumni and students for the MBBC MSc is available for students inelligible for EPSRC funding. Closing Date for applications 31st July 2011.

Students from different backgrounds will find different aspects of the course most challenging. Where required, such as for students from non-mathematical backgrounds needing an introduction to basic mathematical skills, the student cohort may be divided into two groups with specially tailored teaching material and assessed work. Students are also strongly encouraged to learn to teach each other - this being one of the key skills required to undertake multidisciplinary research.
