Four PhD Studentships Available - Research and Development on Important Fruit Crops in the UK

BBSRC CTP four-year studentships for October 2019

The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) have awarded a Collaborative Training Partnership (CTP) grant to a consortium led by Berry Gardens Growers Ltd and NIAB EMR. The Collaborative Training Partnership for Fruit Crop Research focuses on industry led research and development on important fruit crops in the UK. We are offering exciting fully funded PhD opportunities on the following topics:

Using machine learning to predict post-storage apple fruit quality with microbiomes, climatic and imagery information (Ref: CTP_FCR_2019_1)Details

The most important eligibility criterion for these funded studentships is residency:

  • UK students: If you have been ordinarily resident in the UK for three years you will normally be entitled to apply for a full studentship, covering tuition fees and a maintenance stipend.
  • EU students: If you have been ordinarily resident in another EU country (outside the UK) for three years you will normally be able to apply for a tuition fees-only award (without a maintenance stipend). If you have lived in the UK for three years you may be eligible for a full studentship.

This eligibility is unaffected by Brexit. The UK Government has guaranteed EU eligibility for Research Council funding for PhDs beginning before the end of the 2019-20 academic year.

Anyone interested should contact [email protected] for application form and return the form to [email protected] before the deadline of 28th February 2019.
