University of Sheffield, Doctoral Training Partnership in Bioscience

Bioscience-Related PhD ResearchThe University of Nottingham, in partnership with Rothamsted Research (RRes), has established a Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) which will provide world class research training for the Biosciences revolution.

The University of Nottingham has a world class reputation for the bioscience-related research. As a PhD student at the University you will be working with world-leading academic staff to undertake cutting-edge research that address issues in the following areas, identified by the BBSRC as being of strategic importance:

  • Global Food Security
  • Industrial Biotechology and Bioenergy
  • Molecules, Cells and Organisms

Further information regarding each of these areas and the DTP is available at:


The University will fund 30 four-year studentships, for 2012 entry, in the new DTP for Bioscience.  For Home students these will be fully funded studentships (fees and stipend) and for EU students these will be awarded on a fees only basis with no stipend unless students fulfil the residency criteria for a full award.
