Warwick Centre for Doctoral Training in Analytical Sciences

logo1.giflogo2.gifThe Warwick Centre for Doctoral Training in Analytical Sciences is recruiting the next 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. Research and 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.

How to apply: 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 are available for UK citizens for September 2019 entry (full fees + consumables budget and minimum £14k stipend). EU students can apply for a limited number of stipends covering tuition fees. Applications are invited throughout the year.
