We are the White Rose BBSRC Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) in Mechanistic Biology, bringing together the research of the world-class molecular and cellular bioscience centres at the White Rose universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York. The collaboration has attracted three major investments from the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) which, together with additional investment from the partner universities, is currently supporting 135 PhD studentships.
Our mission is to train excellent bio-scientists who understand how living systems work and can innovate to address global challenges, such as, the impact of climate change, a healthier old age, and sustainable food production, land use and energy production.
Join us and you will receive a 4-year, funded PhD programme of research and skills training, with cross-disciplinary supervision, and so much more. We offer a structured programme of cohort-wide training modules and a highlight of the year is the annual symposium, which is planned and delivered by students, for students.
A unique part of your training will be the Professional Internships for PhD Students (PIPS), where you will spend three months at a host organisation of your choosing, gaining experience of work in a professional environment, and acquiring transferable skills that will be beneficial in your future career.
