Academic and industry profiles

"The programme will introduce the basic unit operations which are used to produce everyday commodities from the raw ingredients to the final product and develop knowledge and techniques of measurement and monitoring stability."

Professor Jiannis Pachos
Being able to predict the motion of galaxies or the behaviour of subatomic particles based on few principles — and lots of hard work—is in the core of theoretical physics.I strongly believe that physics, even at challenging levels, should be accessible. This is reflected in the way the Theoretical Physics Program is composed and taught at the University of Leeds.

Paul Beales
"More than ever scientists are having to work in teams where they need to communicate effectively with scientists trained in different disciplines and applying concepts from these different traditional perspectives."

The Food Science (Food Biotechnology) MSc is a learning course designed to emphasise connections between the core sciences of chemistry and biochemistry, alongside the processing of food, in relation to major societal challenges of pivotal importance in our time such as food safety, allergy and nutritional quality.

"This course brings together students from many countries with a wide range of backgrounds providing opportunities to learn from peers as well as staff. You will complete modules on all aspects of nutrition from physiology to policy and finish with a summer project carrying out original research."

Dr Richard Foster
"My enthusiasm for this programme is driven by the nature of my own research career. During this time I led a number of high profile research programmes targeting the generation of central nervous system based therapies leading to the generation of candidates for clinical trials for the treatment of pain and anxiety. I’m extremely passionate about the process of drug discovery and the science of medicinal chemistry."

Stephen Griffiths
"My research work typically involves developing simplified mathematical models of physical processes and running appropriate computer simulations, in order to help explain observed dynamical phenomena. This is very much the philosophy of the MSc in Atmosphere-Ocean Dynamics."
More
"The MSc in Food Quality and Innovation is unique, as it is one of the only programmes in Food Science and Nutrition in the UK, that has been specifically designed using a Project-led Education pedagogy."
More
"The School has many highly respected research active lecturers who all contribute to the teaching on the programmes providing the very best in research based teaching. There are excellent and specialist facilities provided for students studying on these programmes."

Graham Murphy
"I have the opportunity to be involved in teaching a wide variety of students and also to develop the programme so that graduates should be well prepared to begin a career in the actuarial profession on related disciplines."

Natalia Sergeeva
"Personally, I am fascinated by science and chemistry in particular, as for me it combines the best of the two worlds. Thus, you can work on a project that is fundamentally challenging, whilst at the same time it can be highly applied too."
More
"For years I've also been interested in the many links between mathematics and music. People often notice that these subjects fit well together, and for me, the reason is clear: both are concerned with the understanding and manipulation of patterns."

Dr Paul Thornton
"Studying an MSc in Chemistry enhances the job prospects of students in a wide range of industrial sectors, from the pharmaceutical industry to the world of scientific publishing, and beyond."

Bruce Turnbull
"The course starts with the theoretical methods and then in the second half of the year you get a chance to apply your new knowledge in your research project which can involve designing and making new drug candidates, developing drug delivery systems or using chemical and biochemical methods to pick apart the molecular basis of complex biological processes."
