O que eu aprenderei?

Our four-year integrated PhD programme begins with a structured year of training, giving you all the foundation skills necessary to prosper in your PhD research and beyond. In the Bristol Centre for Functional Nanomaterials, not only will you be guided in developing your career as a research scientist, but you will also learn the skills and approaches necessary to translate your findings into technological innovations that impact the wider world.

There is a strong emphasis on exploration and you are actively encouraged to experience different research disciplines and environments before beginning your core PhD research.

Other features of the training year include:

short interdisciplinary projects giving you practical training in all the key characterisation and fabrication techniques in a variety of different labs;
expert-led group-work, practical sessions and lecture courses in advanced topics;
intensive training from scientists working in innovative companies from post-doc-led start-ups to world-leading multinationals;
extensive skills training in leadership, creativity, writing, presenting, group work, leading discussions, etc.

The summer term starts with a six-month extended project, immersing you in your chosen research area. For students who apply for industry-funded projects, you will know your research project on application and the vital experience you have gained through the interdisciplinary taught programme and short research projects allows you to hit the ground running.

Self-funded students (including those applying for scholarships and funding internationally) may select a project from BCFN’s network of over 100 academic supervisors, drawn from a wealth of cutting-edge challenges from across the materials spectrum. Alternatively, you may develop a project in collaboration with supervisors from our network. This long project normally continues as your PhD project.

After your training year, you will move to an academic department in the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Health Sciences or Life Sciences for your PhD project. However, you will remain part of the BCFN community and will maintain close ties by taking part in teaching, regular seminars and events.
