The London Interdisciplinary Biosciences Consortium (LIDo) is an immensely successful collaborative partnership offering world-class interdisciplinary research across the breadth of BBSRC scientific remit.
LIDo unites an exciting team of outstanding universities and unique specialist institutions to provide a truly remarkable and unparalleled opportunity for innovative cutting-edge research in the heart of one of the world’s most vibrant and scientifically stimulating cities.
In September 2020 LIDo will be offering 27 fully funded DTP studentships and 11 fully funded Industrial CASE PhD studentships; these include home/EU tuition fees and a tax-free stipend in the region of £17,009. Candidates are welcome to apply for both the DTP route and one or more iCASE projects.
During their all first-year students will form part of a large and engaged cohort of DTP students receiving advanced training in fundamental and advanced mathematical, computational and statistical skills for interdisciplinary and systems biology research. Expert in-house training in biological concepts from leading LIDo academics is available for students joining us from a non-biological background, as well as exposure to the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries via Birkbeck’s Bioindustry MSc module.
The extraordinary LIDo teaching and research-intensive environment is supported by established cohort building activities, culminating each year in an academic retreat for the students.
We enthusiastically invite applications by all highly motivated students from a wide range of academic backgrounds including biological, physical, computational, engineering or mathematical disciplines.
Applicants must hold, or be expected to achieve, a first or high upper second class honours degree (or equivalent), or an MSci or other Masters degree.
The application pack can be download from our website: http://lido-dtp.ac.uk/lido-apply.html
The application window will close on Friday 24th January 2020, early application is essential as both references must also be received by this date. Interviews will be 17th and 18th February 2020.
We strongly advise detailed and careful review of the Application Guidelines before submission.
