This studentship is part of the White Rose Doctoral Training Partnership in Mechanistic Biology. It is funded by BBSRC and covers: (i) a tax-free stipend at the standard Research Council rate (around £15,000 per year) (ii) research costs, (iii) tuition fees at the UK/EU rate, and (iv) an additional top-up stipend to cover the costs for the industrial placement in Glycom, Denmark. The studentship is available to UK and EU students who meet the UK residency requirement (to have been residing in the UK for at least 3 years continuously prior to the start of the PhD).
ENTRY REQUIREMENTS: Students with, or expecting to gain, at least an upper second class honours degree, or equivalent, are invited to apply. 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.
Candidates invited for interview will be asked to give a 10-minute presentation on a piece of research they have carried out.
