BBSRC Doctoral Training Partnership
1+3 PhD Studentships 2016

Imperial College, in partnership with Royal Holloway, is offering fully funded 4-year studentships to outstanding students for Research Training in the basic and applied biosciences to start in October 2016.

Studentships will be awarded within the following BBSRC strategic research areas:

  • Agriculture and Food Security
  • Bioscience for Health
  • Industrial Biotechnology and Bioenergy
  • World-class and Underpinning Bioscience

Applicants are expected to hold, or to be awarded a first class or a good upper second class BSc Degree, or an equivalent qualification by October 2016.

The studentships are offered on a 1+3 basis (1 Year of Masters study followed by 3 years of PhD Research). In every case, the Masters Course will commence in October 2016 followed by the commencement of the PhD in October 2017. Only UK and EU students who meet the UK residency requirements are eligible to apply (minimum of three years of continuous residency in the UK immediately prior to the start of the PhD).

The studentships cover:

  1. an annual tax-free stipend at the standard Research Council rate (£16,057 for 2015-2016, to be confirmed for 2016-2017 but typically increases annually in line with inflation)
  2. contribution towards research costs, and
  3. tuition fees at the UK/EU rate.

Initial applications should include a full CV, names, addresses and contact details of two academic referees, a personal statement (500 words max) and a covering letter.

In the covering letter, applicants should indicate, and rank if more than one, the projects in which they are interested (please see projects listed below).
