The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Critical Resource Catalysis (CRITICAT) comprises the combined chemistry and chemical engineering Schools of St Andrews, Edinburgh, and Heriot-Watt Universities. CRITICAT provides training in all aspects of catalysis, including homogeneous-, heterogeneous- and bio-catalysis as well as reaction engineering.
This alternative and unique approach to catalysis research will:
We are seeking applications from students who have interests across the breadth of catalysis, in particular those with chemistry, biology or engineering backgrounds. Applications should be sent to email@example.com by Wednesday 4th January 2017. Please carbon copy your application to Dr Kevin Jones (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Applications should include:
UK and EU students will be eligible for full fee studentships, subject to normal EPSRC rules. UK and EU students will also be eligible to receive a stipend (currently £14,296 p.a.) throughout their 4-year course. Applications are welcomed from UK/EU students with, or expecting to gain, a first or upper second class honours MSci/MChem/BSc degree (or equivalent). For non-UK/EU candidates a limited number of Overseas Fees Scholarships may be available for outstanding candidates.
We will shortlist candidates soon after the closing date and invite them for interview. Shortlisted candidates will be invited to attend a two-day open-day/interview on the 19th-20th January 2017. After the interview process students will indicate their preferred supervisor(s) and research project(s). The Management Committee will match the highest calibre students with supervisors and PhD projects.
