Wellcome Trust 4-Year Doctoral Training Programme in Drug Discovery and Team Science

Wellcome Trust 4-Year Doctoral Training Programme in Drug Discovery and Team Science

We are looking for the right person to be part of a vibrant and active biomedical research community that works together to develop novel treatments for disease that will have a positive effect on people’s lives and their health.

The person we are looking for is someone who enjoys the freedom to challenge, to create change and to do things differently.

Nottingham University is working with the Wellcome Trust to offer a fully supported 4-year PhD programme in ‘Drug Discovery and Team Science’ that will enable successful candidates to:

  • Be part of a team-driven project that enables you to shape you own research project whilst working within a supportive scientific community to exchange ideas and collaborate on cutting edge research
  • Collaborate and create networks across a wider scientific community, including Universities and Industry
  • Take part in training opportunities to develop you as an individual - equipping you with technical and transferable skills relevant to the research community and more broadly into the wider world of work

Value of Diversity and Change

Our programme embraces the Wellcome Trust’s perspective on diversity: that a diverse research community leads to better ideas, to support improved health.

We believe that our approach (known as ‘Team Science’), will thrive when individuals with varied viewpoints and backgrounds bring together their unique personal and intellectual experiences, and provide a new perspective on scientific issues.

We are therefore looking for people who:

  • Have the ability to ask questions, generate ideas and work in teams as true collaborators
  • Bring different life experiences and/or insight – whether that’s because of their sex, race, living with any kind of disability (visible or not), age, sexual orientation, class background and education etc. We are particularly keen to hear from you if you can bring insight into Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities, are of an older age group or have direct experience of what it’s like to come from an under-represented background.

We believe this approach will lead to innovative ideas and, with Team Science, a new generation of global thinkers who drive science forward.
