The EPSRC CDT in Chemical Synthesis for a Healthy Planet is a cohort-based graduate (PhD level) training programme delivered jointly by the Universities of Oxford and York.

The programme will provide training to the next generation of synthetic chemists, developing a sustainable, innovative chemistry culture that equips students to address major emerging and future global challenges in Human Health, Energy & Materials, and Food Security.

The overarching objective is to train students to supersede current practices for the synthesis of functional organic molecules by developing sustainable, field-advancing synthetic pathways to the complex targets needed in drug discovery, agrochemistry, and materials development.
Student cohorts will work together in a 4-month training period at both Oxford and York, before embarking on their main PhD projects. These substantive projects will be industry co-supervised, and based at either the Department of Chemistry in Oxford, or the Green Chemistry Centre of Excellence at York.
Applications will open in September 2024. More information will be available in summer 2024.
