The Imperial College London-Royal Holloway BBSRC Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) is supporting Multidisciplinary and Cross Disciplinary postgraduate training by research in the modern biosciences.
Our DTP seeks to offer students the opportunity to develop their research skills and interests through a programme that builds on the use of quantitative approaches to advancing knowledge across a broad range of problems in the biosciences. In particular we seek to place students in research teams that use ranging combinations of technical and theoretical approaches to answer basic and applied problems. DTPs represent a recent, more strategic approach from BBSRC to deliver highly skilled scientists for the UK research base and beyond. Our DTP programme delivers scientists with the necessary training to meet major social and economic challenges, as linked to the key Strategic Priorities identified by the BBSRC:
The studentships are offered on a 1+3 basis (1 Year of Masters study followed by 3 years of PhD Research). The Masters Course will commence in October 2018 followed by the commencement of the PhD in October 2019.
The studentship covers: an annual tax-free stipend at the standard Research Council rate, contribution towards research costs, and tuition fees at the UK/EU rate.
In all cases, candidates must fulfil the BBSRC residence eligibility criteria.
Candidates must either have, or expect to obtain, a BSc degree at 2.1 level or higher, or an equivalent qualification. Depending on the project(s) candidates with life sciences, physical sciences, chemistry, computer sciences or mathematics backgrounds will be considered.
In exceptional circumstances, and when a candidate already holds, or is expected to obtain, a Masters degree in an appropriate subject for a particular PhD project, a 3-year studentship with direct entry to PhD will be allowed.
To apply for a studentship, please visit the Imperial College & Royal Holloway BBSRC DTP website.
Deadline for applications is 5pm on 7th February 2018. Interviews are planned for the week commencing 5th March 2018.
