Study type Research


Our alternative to the traditional PhD includes a unique training period (TATE) before the start of your synthesis research project which will: - enhance your research skills in a variety of areas of chemical synthesis;

  • enable you to choose your own PhD project;

  • introduce you to state-of-the-art automation and reaction technology;

  • introduce you to new methods of computational chemistry, including AI;

  • build personal confidence;

  • grow your employability and transferable skills;

  • foster a teamwork ethos through cohort-driven research;

  • include entrepreneurship training to introduce you to the start-up culture;

  • create links with industry while working on real-world problems;

  • allow you to interact with internationally renowned research groups.

We are seeking applications from students covering the whole breadth of the synthetic chemistry spectrum. We encourage applications from students whose interests include: - Metal catalysed transformations

  • New scaffolds for medicines and agrochemicals

  • Designer ligands for catalysis

  • Computational modelling and automation

  • Design and synthesis of new bioactive and functional molecules

  • Main group chemistry: from molecules to materials

  • Development of expedient new synthetic methodologies

  • Chemistry, synthesis and activity of natural products

  • Cleaner synthesis and reactor technology.

Applications are welcomed from students with or expecting to gain a first or upper-second class honours MSci/MChem (or equivalent). This is one of the CDTs hosted by the School of Chemistry offering training in a number of different disciplines.
