The University of Nottingham, in collaboration with Rothamsted Research (RRes) and its consortium partners, have devised an integrated four-year Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) that provides PhD students with a world-class training programme in Biotechnology and Biological Sciences.
Approximately 50 projects are available to pick from across a range of topics and will be supervised by academic staff from multiple disciplines, including Biosciences, Chemistry, Engineering, Life Sciences, Mathematics, Medicine, Pharmacy, Psychology and Veterinary Medicine and Science. Consortium partners include: Crops for the Future Research Centre in Malaysia; Diamond Light Source; East Malling Research; and Research Complex at Harwell.
