The world leading Department of Chemistry (http://www.imperial.ac.uk/chemistry
) and Institute of Chemical Biology (http://www.chemicalbiology.ac.uk
) at Imperial College London is offering a 1-year multidisciplinary Masters in Research (MRes) in Plant Chemical Biology.
This course will equip you with the skills to tackle problems that lie at the plant/physical science interface on a molecular level. Chemical Biology through physical science innovation will lead to the development of novel technologies, vital to overcome future global challenges such as addressing the food, fuel and fibre needs of our growing population.
Advances in understanding biomolecular processes have often depended on the collaborative efforts of biochemists, chemists and physicists. Students will get training from both academic and industrial leaders in the plant and chemical biology fields. The course will enable students to bridge the gap that can exist between the physical and plant science disciplines because of differences in ‘language’, perspective and methodology. The course consists of an 8-month interdisciplinary research project, specialist lectures, transferable skills courses, interactive workshops, tutorials, journal clubs, and seminars.
Syngenta are the key industrial partner on this course. Joint Syngenta/Imperial research projects (internships) are available on a competitive basis. Students will either be based at Syngenta or at Imperial.
Successful graduates from this course will be ideally placed to undertake PhD studies or apply directly to the agri-science industrial sector.
