What will I learn?

Course Overview

This PhD offers an academic training route for graduates seeking to perform leading fundamental and technologically relevant research that transcends the traditional discipline boundaries by linking one or more other disciplines with chemistry. Options include Biology and Medicine, Computation, Engineering, Physics and subjects offered by the Lancaster Environment Centre.

A substantial amount of research addresses research questions that fall between the boundaries of traditional disciplines. Real-world problems require a multi-disciplinary approach, and research expertise at the interfaces of these disciplines is essential to delivering impactful solutions. A Natural Sciences PhD will capture and give expression to such research training.
