EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in BioDesign Engineering

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in BioDesign Engineering aims to train the next generation of leaders at the interface of biology, engineering and data science. The CDT will have an integrative training programme that covers experimentation, automation, coding, data science and entrepreneurship applied to the design, realisation and optimisation of novel biological systems for diverse applications.

The CDT is being led by Imperial College with the University of Manchester and University College London as partners.

All students will undertake the MRes in Systems and Synthetic Biology at Imperial College in their first year, with an extended project at the lead-supervisor institution, followed by a 3 year PhD registration in that host institution.

Our aim is to build an inclusive cohort of students with diverse skillsets from life sciences, engineering and physical/computational backgrounds. We therefore encourage applications from students that reflect this diversity. Applications are open to students with Home fees status as well as those with EU/International fees status. A studentship covers tuition fees as well as a stipend at the UKRI rate for the full duration of the 1+3 programme.
