Course summary

This four-year doctoral training programme in Aerosol Science is part of the multi-institutional EPSRC Aerosol Science CDT and aims to provide scientists and engineers with a broad overview of the aerosol science sector in addition to in-depth training in a detailed measurements, analysis and application approaches.

The initial year of the four-year doctoral training programme is aimed at building skills through taught courses at the University of Bristol and a thematic broadening research placement that allows for complementary skills building. Final research projects are agreed upon at the start of the PhD and will be advertised for students to select.

The Aerosol Science programme forms the core structure of the first seven months of PhD training for our doctoral researchers, providing training in the underlying physical science governing the properties and transformation of aerosols.

Training within the first year will provide the student with skills enabling: the acquisition of a broad understanding of core aerosol topics, as well as transferable skills in a substantial body of knowledge which is at the forefront of an academic nuclear discipline or area of nuclear professional practice; the creation and interpretation of new knowledge, through original research or other advanced scholarship, of a quality to satisfy peer review, extend the forefront of the discipline, and merit publication; the development of a PhD thesis for an examination that they can defend in an oral examination. This CDT operates in collaboration with the Universities of Bristol, Bath, Hertfordshire, Imperial College London, Leeds and Manchester.
