Molecular Analytical Sciences Centre for Doctoral Training
Please visit centre's new website at www.warwick.ac.uk/mas.
An exciting new Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) opened this year 2014 in Warwick Analytical Sciences: the Molecular Analytical Science (MAS) CDT which has been awarded funding from the EPSRC.
MAS CDT will produce a new generation of Analytical Scientists. With the world-leading facilities and expertise at Warwick at their disposal, our students will graduate with a unique combination of skills in exploiting synergies between different experimental methods and in harnessing the power of combining data collection with experimental design, statistical analysis, modelling, and simulation. They will become the future leaders in Analytical Science, equipped with a combination of scientific and complementary skills for addressing many of the key industrial and societal challenges faced by the UK.
Courses on Offer at the MAS CDT:
Applications are invited for fully-funded studentships at the new Molecular Analytical Sciences (MAS) Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT):
MAS offers a four year degree programme (MSc + PhD) in Multidisciplinary Science which aims to develop new techniques and methodologies and apply them in creative ways to solve real-world problems. The disciplines covered include chemistry, physics, statistics, mathematics, biology, engineering and computer science. Candidates with a first degree in any of these subjects are invited to apply.
All PhD projects will involve a combination of basic research into analytical techniques focused by the demands of an application area. The supervisors include Warwick Analytical Science Centre (WASC) academics as well as industrial partners such as instrument manufacturers, technique users, pharmaceutical companies, consultants and analytical instrumentation users. Each MSc or PhD research project will be aimed at the creation of new instrumentation and techniques or improvements to existing methods to solve problems that cannot be tackled now.
MAS PhD students will obtain:
- an MSc in Molecular Analytical Science,
- a PhD in cross-discipline Analytical Science; and
- a Postgraduate Certificate in Transferable Skills in Science.
Studentships are available for UK citizens for 2014 entry (full fees + consumables budget and minimum £13.7k stipend). EU students can apply for a limited number of stipends covering tuition fees and a consumables budget.
