In 2013, the University of Nottingham was awarded £5.28M to establish the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Sustainable Chemistry. Developed in collaboration with Industry and as a partnership of several disciplines including chemistry, engineering, biosciences and business, the Centre aims to train students in the development of sustainable processes and compounds for the chemistry-using industries. The defining principle that has driven the co-creation of the CDT training programme is a shared vision and commitment to foster a new generation of champions for sustainable chemistry – these individuals will be equipped with the skills and experience to lead chemistry-using industries towards a more sustainable future.

Applications are invited from suitably qualified graduates for a fully funded 4-year PhD studentship at the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Sustainable Chemistry for a start in October 2018.
