Postgraduate research opportunities
The School of Chemistry at the University of Glasgow is part of the WestCHEM Research School. The WestCHEM Graduate School has over 200 Chemistry PhD students. Around half of these are based at the University of Glasgow, engaged in a wide range of Chemistry research. The Chemistry Graduate School at the University of Glasgow expects to have a range of PhD studentships available for projects beginning in October of each year. To apply for a PhD studentship, go through the following steps:
Select a topic
Research in the School is divided in five overlapping research themes:
First select a research topic that interests you.
Contact a supervisor
Find a potential PhD advisor by studying the research theme pages or by looking at the individual staff pages. Most if not all staff pages are linked from academic staff. It is advisable that you contact a potential supervisor first and that you discuss options for research, availability, and funding. Informal enquiries can also be made to the Head of the Chemistry Graduate School, Dr Graeme Cooke.
The final step is application for admission to the Glasgow University/WestCHEM Graduate School via the College Graduate School. Applicants should have or expect to get at least a second class honours degree or equivalent.
