The have a Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) Grant from BBSRC, providing 4-year fully funded studentships (subject to eligibility).
The programme provides excellent post graduate training, addressing the need for trained scientists in strategically-important research areas and skills. The programme has four main research areas, which are:
- Basic Biosciences Underpinning Health
- Bioenergy and Industrial Biotechnology
- Food Security
- World Class Underpinning Bioscience
BBSRC funded research and training will emphasise research aimed at improved understanding of basic biological mechanisms, from the study of biological molecules, to cellular and physiological processes, including genetic and genomic approaches. By this means the work will drive innovative discoveries, for example new leads for drugs or prevention strategies, or underlying principles of cellular function, as well as interfacing with physical sciences and mathematics through improved understanding of biological mechanisms underlying normal growth and development. Our bioscience research projects offered will help sustain the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries in the UK, where the flow of ideas, skills and key capabilities provides mutual benefit.
