White Rose BBSRC DTP in Mechanistic Biology
4 year fully-funded programme of integrated research and skills training, starting Oct 2020:
• Research Council Stipend
• UK/EU Tuition Fees
• Conference and research funding
At least a 2:1 honours degree or equivalent. We welcome students with backgrounds in biological, chemical or physical sciences, or mathematical backgrounds with an interest in biological questions.
EU candidates require 3 years of UK residency to receive full studentship
The DTP will appoint a number of candidates via a competitive process.
Prospective candidates are encouraged to contact Stefan Kepinski ([email protected]) to discuss the project.
