Do you want to take up a career in research and development? We’re recruiting ambitious students with degrees in Chemistry, Physics, Life Sciences, Engineering, Mathematics or Statistics.
We offer you a coherent training programme in Analytical Science, a central and interdisciplinary science which supports research and development in a huge number of key industries. Analytical Science underpins many aspects of biological and clinical sciences,environmental sciences, pharmaceutical sciences, materials science and synthetic chemistry. This course offers expertise from international experts within academia and collaborating companies like Syngenta and AstraZeneca.
You’ll gain hands-on experience in a variety of relevant techniques, enabling you to work in any modern laboratory since the skills you acquire will be readily transferable between disciplines. You’ll also have an incredible opportunity to undertake cutting-edge research with a world-leading group or company. By the end of the course you’ll be positioned to take up employment in research and development roles within a number of sectors, or to take up further study with a PhD.
The course spans 1 year, the first 23 weeks are lecture-based, providing you with a diverse toolbox in analytical sciences enabling you to complete a successful 20 week research project. Term 1 and Term 2 (23 weeks): -Mass Spectrometry -Chromatography & Separation Science -Team Research Project: Real World Analysis -Electrochemistry & Sensors -Principles & Techniques in Quantitative and Qualitative Analysis -Magnetic Resonance -Techniques for the Characterisation of Biomolecules -Microscopy & Imaging -Statistice for Data Analysis -Transferable Skills
