Research and development opportunities
PhD by research
The Centre for Novel Agricultural Products (CNAP) is committed to training young researchers in its multi-disciplinary environment. Postgraduates studying within CNAP for their PhD programme are supported by a wide range of sponsors.
As part of the Department of Biology, graduates in CNAP undertake a programme of research, guided by their supervisor and a training panel consisting of an additional two academics with relevant expertise. There is a formal requirement for a range of activities, including taught courses on transferable skills and generic technologies.
All graduates have access to the Departmental Technology Facility, ensuring training in new technologies in biological science.
Independent Research Fellows
CNAP has hosted a number of independent Research Fellows developing their own research interests, funded by competitive awards from the BBSRC, The Royal Society and Fellowships from Germany, Austria and the United States.
