A PhD is the abbreviation for Doctor of philosophy. This degree is a post graduate program delivered to a high level student researcher who has done deep research in a specific field or subject.
Chemistry developed into a practiced science thanks to methods which were introduced by Sir Francis Bacon. He along with another group of scientists in Oxford restructured old traditions of alchemy into a more disciplined scientific study.
The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, commonly known as the United Kingdom and Britain, is a sovereign state located off the north-western coast of continental Europe.The two most famous (and oldest) universities are Oxford and Cambridge (often referred to as Oxbridge by many Britons) England also has several other world-class institutions, including several in London (notably Imperial College, the London School of Economics, University College London and King's College London, all are part of London University)

NOWNano DTC: The North West Nanoscience Doctoral Training Centre
NowNano DTC students undertake a four-year doctoral training programme. A major aim of the DTC is to create a cohort of researchers that are able to draw on knowledge from a broad spectrum of sciences and to work in interdisciplinary teams. The challenge is to enable our students to understand the different languages and philosophies of disciplines as diverse as theoretical physics & astronomy and medicine.The aim of the first six months of the programme is to expose students to the full breadth of nanoscience and nanotechnology and to provide them with the skills and background knowledge that they will need during their Ph.D. projects in order to understand the diverse concepts and knowledge that they will inevitably encounter. To this end, the programme includes not only lecture courses and directed self-study (inquiry-based learning) but also extended (12 weeks-long) laboratory projects covering different aspects of nanoscience and nanotechnology.Also during this time, students will have an opportunity to learn about the available Ph.D. research projects through presentations by potential supervisors and visits to research labs. It is expected that many projects will be interdisciplinary, with co-supervision by academics from different Schools/Departments, providing students with access to the world-class facilities.... [-]
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. [+]
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.... [-]
