The Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP) is a BBSRC-funded doctoral training partnership between five research-intensive universities, the University of Warwick, the University of Birmingham, the University of Leicester, Aston University, and Harper Adams University. We deliver innovative, world-class research training across the Life Sciences. Applications for PhD scholarships are invited from strong students (in biology, chemistry and physical sciences) who wish to undertake research projects in:
|Sustainable Agriculture and Food||Details|
|Renewable Resources and Clean Growth||Details|
|Understanding the Rules of Life||Details|
|Integrated Understanding of Health||Details|
MIBTP is focused on interdisciplinary bioscience, quantitative biology and exploiting new technology platforms. MIBTP is equipping students with the skills to investigate biological questions across discipline boundaries, to generate, analyse and mine large-scale data sets and to be able to use state-of-the-art techniques in their research.
Students undertake an initial 12 weeks of training in skills needed for quantitative bioscience, followed by two 12-week research projects; they also undertake one 12-week professional placement during the four-year programme. Our PhD training produces mature, skilled, high-achieving graduates primed to succeed in their future careers.
MIBTP welcomes applications from excellent students with a biology, chemistry and/or physical science background. Successful applicants will be creative and motivated to carry out interdisciplinary research. You may indicate a preference for particular projects at the time of application, but you may also apply to a research theme and final project choice is not required until the training has given you the chance to experience different research environments.
In order to apply you must ensure that you are eligible and complete an application form.
Full details of the programme including information on how to apply can be found at www.warwick.ac.uk/mibtp
MIBTP has a number of BBSRC funded CASE studentships available. CASE studentships are designed to provide students with a first-rate challenging research training experience within the context of a mutually-beneficial research collaboration between academic and non-academic partner organisations.
CASE students must fulfil the MIBTP entry requirements and will join the MIBTP cohort for the taught modules in year 1 and masterclasses and regular cohort events throughout their PhD.
Further information can be found on the MIBTP CASE webpage.
