The Newcastle-Liverpool-Durham DTP is a strategic Partnership in Biosciences doctoral training between three research-intensive universities in northern cities of great industrial heritage, Newcastle University, the University of Liverpool and Durham University.
The Partnership is offering up to 22 four-year BBSRC-funded studentships starting in October 2017. A wide range of projects across the Partnership are available for application under the broad themes of Agriculture & Food Security, Bioscience for Health and World Class Bioscience:

BBSRC DTP iCASE awards enable students to undertake research projects that involve both an academic and non-academic partner. iCASE studentships provide outstanding students with access to training, facilities and expertise not available in an academic setting. The partner organisation also benefits from recruiting a motivated, doctoral student who is capable of undertaking cutting-edge research.
All studentships will cover a tax-free stipend at the Research Council UK rate (indicative amount in year 1 in 2016-17, £14,296), research costs and tuition fees, and are available to UK students and to EU citizens who have been in the UK for the three years prior to the academic year 2017-18. Fees only studentships (no stipend) are available to EU citizens who have been a resident of the EU but not UK.
Further information about eligibility for Research Council UK funding can be found here .
Students who have, or are expecting to attain at least an upper second class honours degree (or equivalent) in relevant biological subjects, are invited to apply by email and CV to the project supervisor by 5 January 2017.
The multidisciplinary training experience and interdisciplinary nature of some of the projects means that we welcome applications from students with physical science and mathematical backgrounds who are interested in using their skills to address the challenges of 21st century bioscience research.
