Imperial College London and Royal Holloway University of London’s Doctoral Training Partnership Programme is pleased to announce the competition launch of 15 BBSRC DTP, fully-funded studentship awards for October 2019.
Our unique BBSRC DTP programme offers a QAA-accredited Masters as part of our rigorous 1+3 PhD training programme. Adapting a student-centred approach, our students actively work alongside their supervisors to select the most appropriate Masters course at either institution, a befitting PIPS placement, and other relevant training and development opportunities. Our programme also offers a +3 programme for those who already have a relevant Masters-level training. Benefiting from two distinct and cross-disciplinary skills sets, students work with two PhD supervisors usually from differing departments or institutions. Supplemented with our programme-specific yearly offerings of workshops, courses, and other cohort activities, this doctoral training partnership produces highly trained researchers who are well-equipped to tackle the varying challenges of twenty-first century research in the biological sciences.
To see a list of available projects at ICL and RHUL, please visit our website. RHUL projects are competition-funded, meaning the project that receives the best applicant will be awarded the funding. Visit the individual project link for further information.
UK or EU nationals who are ordinary UK residents are eligible to apply. Candidates must carefully read Annex 1 of the RCUK Training Grant Guide to determine your own eligibility before applying. Candidates should have a BSc degree at 2.1 level or higher, or an equivalent qualification. Students with a relevant Masters can be considered for a +3 programme.
