About MSc + PhD (1+3) in Molecular Analytical Sciences at University of Warwick

This programme will enable you to tackle important real-world problems through the creation of new instrumentation and techniques, or improvements to existing methods. Laboratory reports, scientific papers, presentations and dissertations will develop your skills in scientific and academic reporting.

You’ll develop your knowledge of molecular analytics through 11 modules taken in the first six months. In the second half of your first year, you can apply your learning through two 10-week research projects, one with an experimental and one with a computational focus. There is a good chance that at least one of these projects will be in collaboration with one of our industrial partners. The experience of working across two different research environments will provide excellent preparation for your PhD and your further career.

Throughout your course, you’ll benefit from using high-specification instrumentation in the areas of mass spectrometry, electrochemistry, optical, NMR and EPR spectroscopies and state of the art microscopy, among others. You will also have the opportunity to develop skills in computation and modelling.

Department information

Areas for PhD supervision can include a combination of:

Mass spectrometry, Electrochemistry, Microscopy, NMR and EPR, Statistical methods, Modelcular modelling, Surface chemistry, optical spectroscopies, and many more. Many of our projects are co-sponsored by industry and aim to tackle important generic challenges, especially in the pharmaceutical sciences, agrichemicals, additives and personal products. You could find yourself developing new instruments to understand the action antiperspirants, how polymers and active ingredients are delivered to plants, developing sensors for water treatment, detecting impurities in drug formulations, developing a molecular understanding of corrosion, or understanding how pharmaceutical crystals dissolve and grow, among many possibilities. Our projects provide an opportunity to not only tackle these types of topics, but also to advance analytical science.
