Course summary

Our alternative to the traditional PhD includes a unique training period (TATE) before the start of your synthesis research project which will:

  • enhance your research skills in a variety of areas of chemical synthesis;
  • enable you to choose your own PhD project;
  • introduce you to state-of-the-art automation and reaction technology;
  • introduce you to new methods of computational chemistry, including AI;
  • build personal confidence;
  • grow your employability and transferable skills;
  • foster a teamwork ethos through cohort-driven research;
  • include entrepreneurship training to introduce you to the start-up culture;
  • create links with industry while working on real-world problems;
  • allow you to interact with internationally renowned research groups.

The main goal of TATE is to enable you to make an informed PhD choice. You will develop research proposals in brainstorming sessions and undertake short rotations in synthetic chemistry labs - contributing to the group’s research aims - before selecting your PhD project. In addition, we provide training on automated synthesis, computational methods for synthesis design and new reactor technologies, alongside research lectures by world-renowned academics, who are leaders in their fields.

Careers

This PhD programme has grown out of our previous Chemical Synthesis PhD. Graduates from this programme are currently working in a range of sectors, including further academic research, pharma and biotech industries, patent law and teaching.
