The mission of the CDT to educate a critical mass of researchers equipped to respond to future research challenges and opportunities created by the data-revolution: highly qualified researchers with the ability to collect data using automated, high-throughput reaction platforms, and to apply quantitative and statistical approaches to data analysis and utilisation. The CDT assembles a multi-disciplinary team of internationally-leading researchers at Imperial College, augmented by recent investments in state-of-the-art infrastructure, equipment and facilities (ROAR, Agilent measurement suite), to produce well-rounded individuals who can tackle challenges of synthesis in the coming decades.
Profile of the Researcher produced by the CDT:
Funded 4 year studentships are available to start in October 2019. Potential candidates are encouraged to submit their CV and a letter, including contact details of two referees, to Prof. Mimi Hii. Imperial College PhD entry requirements must be met and the successful applicant will subsequently need to apply online. For further information please contact email@example.com.
The CDT programme:
MRes course (Year 1): The first year is structured as a standalone course for the UK cohort, where the students will progress through a common academic program in scheduled classes. The course includes 3 mandatory taught components, aimed at underpinning the fundamentals in synthetic chemistry, engineering and statistical sciences. Each student will undertake a 9-month individual research project in a chosen area.
PhD (Years 2-4): The formal taught courses will be reduced to allow the student more time to pursue their independent project in subsequent years.
A key feature of this CDT is the accessibility of centralised and managed facilities such as ROAR, and the Agilent Advanced Measurement Suite to provide access to a range of automated reactors, ideal for delivering cohort-based practical workshops. Workshops will be given by technical experts from the hardware and software suppliers. Certificates of attendance will be issued and recorded on the students’ skill record.
The students will also be expected to undertake professional and personal development courses, offered by the award-winning Graduate School.
All students will be encouraged to undertake a period of placement and internship, in an industrial or an academic collaborator’s lab, during or immediately after their PhD.
Applicants should hold or expect to obtain a first or upper-second class honours degree or equivalent in Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, or a related field. A Master’s degree in one of the above fields would be advantageous.
Stage 1: Send a full CV and covering email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Stage 2: Suitable applicants will be invited for interview in late March/early April.
Full funding is available for Home Students and European Union nationals who have been ordinarily resident in the UK for at least three years prior to the start date a CDT studentship. For a 1st October 2019 start date you would need to have been resident in the UK since 30th September 2016.
Overseas students with funding are welcome to apply.
