The University of Nottingham, in collaboration withRothamsted Research (RRes) and its consortium partners, have devised an integrated four-year Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) that provides PhD students with a world-class training programmein Biotechnology and Biological Sciences.

Applications are invited to join this innovative four-year PhD training programme with research opportunities across the biological spectrum, from Molecules to Cells and Organisms (MCO). Addressing research challenges in biosciences requires the application of experimental techniques drawn from the disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. The studentship programme will therefore provide cutting-edge training at the interfaces of these disciplines.

More than 50 Research projects are available across a range of topics and will be supervised by academic staff from across multiple disciplines, including Biosciences, Chemistry, Engineering, Life Sciences, Mathematics, Medicine, Pharmacy, Psychology and Veterinary Medicine and Science. Consortium partners include: Centre for Process Innovation (CPI) National Industrial Biotechnology Facility;Crops for the Future Research Centre in Malaysia;Diamond Light Source; East Malling Research;andResearch Complex at Harwell.

You can find out more about the DTP on our website.

Applications are invited from students with backgrounds in Bioscience, Biochemistry, Microbiology, Biotechnology, Chemistry, Chemical/Biochemical/Process Engineering, Environmental Science, Pharmacy, Computer Science, Maths or related disciplines who have/expect to graduate with a first/upper-second UK honours degree, or equivalent qualifications gained outside the UK. Students with an appropriate Master's degree are particularly encouraged to apply.
