Our alternative to the traditional PhD includes a unique training period (TATE) before the start of your synthesis research project which will:

  • enhance your research skills in a variety of areas of chemical synthesis
  • introduce you to state-of-the-art automation and reaction technology;
  • introduce you to new methods of computational chemistry, including AI;
  • enable you to choose your own PhD project;


This Technology Enhanced Chemical Synthesis programme offered by University of Bristol  has grown out of our previous Chemical Synthesis PhD. Graduates from this programme are currently working in a range of sectors, including further academic research, pharma and biotech industries, patent law and teaching.
