How to apply

Our fully-funded studentships are four years in duration and cover fees and stipend. We are seeking applications from students covering the whole breadth of Synthetic Chemistry.

Shortlisted applicants are normally invited to visit the School of Chemistry to hear more about the Centre and our PhD programme, meet academic staff to discuss their research and find out what Bristol has to offer from current PhDs.

However, because of COVID-19, this year we will host a virtual visit day (date to be announced). Attendees will hear about active research areas and the CDT Training Programme, as well as meet some current students. More information and joining instructions will be sent out to applicants closer to the time. We look forward to seeing you there.
