We invite applications from highly motivated students with a wide range of academic backgrounds

As part of the programme students will undertake an extended placement with their non-academic partner. The placement will be at least 3 months, but could be extended to a maximum of 18 months. In addition to the inestimable experience of an industrial research environment, the student will also receive business-related training.

During their first year students will form part of a large and engaged cohort of DTP students receiving advanced training in fundamental and advanced mathematical, computational and statistical skills for interdisciplinary and systems biology research. In addition to this iCASE students will take a course in the Bio-Industry, exploring the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries via a learning and teaching focus on the selected literature. Industry based speakers and networking opportunities make this a valuable learning and development activity.

The extraordinary teaching and research-intensive environment is framework to robust cohort building activities, culminating each year in an academic retreat for the students. This popular residential event is designed and planned by the students, for the students.

We therefore invite applications from highly motivated students with a wide range of academic backgrounds including biological, physical, computational, engineering or mathematical disciplines.

Applicants must hold, or be expected to achieve, a first or high upper second class honours degree (or equivalent), or an MSci or other Masters degree.

The application pack can be download from our website

The application window will close on 20th January 2017 and early application is strongly advised.
