BBSRC White Rose
Doctoral Training Partnership
in Mechanistic Biology

This BBSRC-funded Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) brings together the very best in molecular, chemical and cellular research across the White Rose Consortium of Universities (Leeds, Sheffield and York).

At York the partnership involves researchers from the departments of Biology and Chemistry and offers a wide range of projects under the BBSRC strategic priority areas of Food Security, Industrial Biotechnology and Bioenergy, and World Class Biosciences.


8 four-year fully funded PhD studentships will be available soon on this prestigious programme for entry in October 2018. The studentships are fully funded by BBSRC and cover: (i) a tax-free annual stipend at the standard Research Council rate (£14,533 for 2017-2018, to be confirmed for 2018-2019 but typically increases annually in line with inflation), (ii) research costs, and (iii) tuition fees at the UK/EU rate.


The studentships are available to UK and EU students who meet the UK residency requirements. Students from EU countries who do not meet the residency requirements may still be eligible for a fees-only award. Further information about eligibility for Research Council UK funding can be found at the following website:
