What career can you have?
Reading School of Pharmacy has excellent links with industry, from the big Pharma to SMEs. Many of or graduates go on to work in industry and as researchers at NHS organisations.
The University of Reading has an established global reputation for research in the application of chemical, pharmaceutical and pharmacological expertise to areas of therapeutic and biological importance.
There is a collaborative environment across the University. In particular, the School of Pharmacy has become integrated with the Brain Embodiment Laboratory (BEL) following a £300,000 investment to establish electrophysiology/ tissue culture facilities and expand collaborations with computational neuroscientists in the School of Systems Engineering.
Strong links with industry allow access to industrial laboratories and facilities to support your research. Many of our staff hold external appointments at various national and international research committees which provide additional opportunities for participation in conferences and other networking events.
You are normally required to have a good undergraduate Honours degree (or equivalent from a university outside the UK). If you have other qualifications and a number of years' relevant work experience then you also be eligible to apply. Normally a first-class or upper second class (2:1) degree in an appropriate biological science or related degree although those with relevant experience are also considered.
