Program Description

PhD Sustainable Chemistry (Doctoral Training Centre PhD, Digital Economy Centre for Doctoral Training PhD)

The University of Nottingham - Faculty of Engineering

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Sustainable Chemistry was developed in collaboration with industry and as a partnership of several disciplines, including chemistry, engineering, biosciences, and business. The center aims to provide students with first-class research training as well as the technical, theoretical and entrepreneurial skills to enable them to become champions in sustainable chemistry.

Programme overview

The EPSRC CDT in Sustainable Chemistry is a four-year programme that offers fully-funded studentships to 14 students with a background in chemistry, engineering or biosciences.

During the first year, students will develop their main research project and then work on this for the next three years. As well as academic training, students will further benefit from a professional skills programme and practical laboratory skills training.

Key benefits include:

  • innovative training approach and continuous professional development
  • interdisciplinary exposure
  • peer support network
  • generous travel and consumables budget
  • funded three-month placement in industry or another higher education institution
  • tuition fees paid and a tax-free annual stipend of £14,296 available to UK and EU nationals

Entry requirements

Ideally, candidates are expected to hold at least an upper second class honors degree with a recognizable amount of chemical science content, from a four-year undergraduate course (MSci, MChem, MEng, etc) or equivalent qualification.

This qualification could include chemistry, chemical engineering, process engineering, food science, natural sciences, biochemistry, biotechnology, pharmacy or other first-degree topics with a directed input to the theme of sustainability and sustainable chemicals processing.

Funding

Tuition fees paid and a tax-free annual stipend of £14,296 available to UK and EU nationals.

Funding is subject to EPSRC criteria.

Please note: self-funded students who do not fit the ESPRC rules can also be associated with the center.
