White Rose BBSRC Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) in Mechanistic Biology

Who we are

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 145 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.

What is on offer?

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.

Appointed candidates will be fully-funded for 4 years. The funding includes:

  • Tax-free annual UKRI stipend (£15,609 for 2021/22 starts. Awards increase every year, typically with inflation)
  • UK tuition fees (Around £4,500 per year)
  • Research Training and Support Grant (RTSG)
  • Conference and Professional Internships for PhD Students (PIPS) allowances
  • Centrally organised training and networking opportunities, including an annual student symposium

We aim to support the most outstanding applicants from inside and outside the UK. We are able to offer a limited number of bursaries that will enable full studentships to be awarded to international applicants. These full studentships will only be awarded to exceptional quality candidates, due to the competitive nature of this scheme.

Not all projects will be funded; the DTP will appoint a limited number of candidates via a competitive process.

Equality, diversity and inclusion

Equality, diversity and inclusion is fundamental to the success of The White Rose BBSRC DTP and is at the heart of all of our activities. The full equality, diversity and inclusion statement can be found here.

What we are looking for

  • At least a 2:1 honours degree in a relevant subject, or equivalent. The interdisciplinary nature of this programme means that we welcome applications from students with backgrounds in any biological, chemical, and/or physical science, or students with mathematical backgrounds who are interested in using their skills in addressing biological questions.
  • The studentships are available to UK and international students. Further information about student eligibility can be found here. The new UKRI eligibility requirements for international students (published Oct 2020) can be found here.
  • There are language requirements for international students.
