Centre for Doctoral Training in Aerosol Science

Organization profile

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Aerosol Science (CAS) offers multidisciplinary doctoral training bringing together leading academic teams across a range of schools and faculties at seven UK universities with industrial and public-sector partners in areas of healthcare, material science, energy and transport, environment, consumer products and agrochemicals.

An aerosol consists of solid particles or liquid droplets dispersed in a gas phase, with sizes spanning from clusters of molecules (nanometres) to rain droplets (millimetres). Not only will studying at the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Aerosol Science (CAS) for a PhD give you an opportunity to undertake leading research in aerosols, it will equip you with a unique mix of skills and experiences for your future career, including:

  • Comprehensive training in the core physical science of aerosols during the first seven months of your PhD, hosted at the University of Bristol.
  • Engagement with a complementary area of aerosol science to your main PhD project during a thematic research broadening sabbatical.
  • Mentoring from an industrial supervisor with an opportunity to work with the industrial partner during a placement in year two or three.
  • Experience of working in multidisciplinary teams, ensuring you have the agility to work at the interfaces of the traditional disciplines.
  • Opportunities to build a network for the future with a community across seven universities and 50 industry and public sector partners.
