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 2021 LIDo will be offering 41 fully funded studentships across our DTP and iCASE routes of entry; these include home/EU tuition fees and a tax-free stipend in the region of £17,285.
During the first-year, students will receive 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 history, trends and structure of the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries via Birkbeck’s Bioindustry MSc module.
Each year a week of cross research council remit teaching cushions the two rotations providing students the opportunity to hear from academic, industry, government and not-for-profit speakers on a range of topics in the boundaries of BBSRC remit and networking events across London’s postgraduate research community.
The extraordinary LIDo teaching and research-intensive environment sits within a framework of robust and 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.
